Richa Chadha recently emerged victorious in a defamation case which she was fighting against Payal Ghosh who had dragged her name while addressing the sexual misconduct allegations against Anurag Kashyap. This week, Payal tendered an unconditional apology to Richa and even agreed to remove defamatory social media posts. While the case against two others, Kamaal R Khan and a news channel is still underway, Richa is ecstatic with the win and says that a price tag cannot be put on her reputation.  

Opening up on the case and Payal Ghosh's back and forth statements on apology, Richa told Mumbai Mirror, "The court has constantly recorded what is right and I’d not hold Twitter over the court. It is not just an apology; it is the consent terms as an undertaking, which is sacrosanct. My fans may want more, but this was not about money, only about my respect." Richa had sued Payal and demanded a compensation of Rs 1.1 crore. 

Asked why she did not push for the compensation, Richa added, "Out of respect for the court and the proceedings on October 7, I decided not to press for monetary compensation. It was not about money anyway. You can’t put a price on my reputation. I had sued for Rs 1.1 crore, which is very close to the bare minimum in a defamatory case in the Bombay High Court. I didn’t start it, but I have certainly finished it." 

Tjhe 'Fukrey' actress added that one needs to be responsible while "reporting abuse making statements". She also said how she is interested to see what the outcome of the lawsuit filed by 34 producers and associations of the industry will be.

Instead of taking an action against anurag who reportedly had said ill about you to payal you took action against payal who was an easy target as compared to anurag, but if you hypocrite are left with little bit of shame then shouldn't be having any relation with anurag as of now yet you are workless so there is proximity of seeing both of you together with other members of gang.

Richa and all anurag call girls in the comments, maybe payal should have refrain from taking names but if richa is mad , why is she mad on payal only but not anurag? Reason is simply she wants more work! If payal was some ekta kapoor or big director , richa would have suck up to her!

Thanks Richa for not bowing to this character assassination and showing this Ghosh woman that there r also right ways to counteract. I still can not digest the fact that Ms Ghosh calls herself a victim while she openly n online attacks others women without thinking twice of repercussions.

It is a shame that she went after a lady who was claiming to be a victim. Whether Payal was a victim or not will be determined, but a least until then instead of empathizing and be quiet she took action on the lady who acquired more enemies than supporters with this case. Her name was brought up un necessarily, I agree, but she can take action once Anurag Kashyap is proven innocent. This is the time to wait for that moment. She may have won legally but morally she has lost.
