Richa Chadha triumphed over Payal Ghosh by suing her for defamation, getting a court order against her and will apparently get monetary compensation.
Now, Chadha says Anurag Kashyap can defend himself against the allegations of sexual misconduct thrown towards him by Ghosh.
As per a Hindustan Times report, Richa had a fitting reply when she was asked why she was not defending Anurag the way other Bollywood celebrities did. She said, “I have done one film with him, in 2010-11, which was Gangs of Wasseypur, which went on to become a cult film.”
“When he produced films I was in, like Masaan, etc, I had very, very limited interaction with him. I don’t really hang out with him, I haven’t. In the past decade I’ve met him… I can count on my fingers the number of times I’ve met him, mostly at screenings.”
She continued by saying she wasn’t his advocate. “I’m not an advocate for Mr Kashyap. He has a very sound legal team, he can defend himself. A lot of people have offered their support to him, and yes to an extent it is legal advice. They were out to make me a party, as a criminal conspirator in this case against him. So I am following legal advice and not going out of my way and defending him. He can defend himself.“
