Defamation: Richa Chadha Sues Actor, Wants ₹ 1.1 Crore In Damages

This is the same actor who had accused filmmaker Anurag Kashyap of rape.

Mumbai: Richa Chadha has filed a Rs 1.1 core defamation suit against the actress who had accused filmmaker Anurag Kashyap of rape.

During an interview with a Telugu language channel, the actor had named Chadha in relation to her allegations against Kashyap, NDTV reported. She also claimed that Kashyap had referred to Chadha as someone who was “just a call away”.

Chadha’s complaint says the comments have caused damage to her goodwill in the film industry and resulted in her humiliation, NDTV reported.

Justice AK Menon, who is hearing the plea, on Wednesday asked the actor’s (who accused Kashyap of rape) lawyer if she wished to withdraw her statements against Richa Chadha.

“You have given chance to Richa Chadha, Mahie Gill, Huma Qureshi… they are so nominal looking girls. Generally, directors don’t give them chance but you have done a great job. But I am not mentally prepared for this right now,” the actor had claimed to have told Kashyap during an alleged encounter, NDTV reported.
