Reacting to the same, Ghosh told ANI, “I don’t have anything to do with Richa Chadha. I did not defame her so I don’t understand what her case is all about. I have only stated what Mr. Kashyap had told me. It’s not my personal view. So this defamation case is not valid. Anyways, if she has said that, then will face that and we’ll carify.”
Richa Chadha filed a case before the Bombay High Court for Rs.1.10 Crores against Payal Ghosh in connection with “tarnishing her reputation” and subjecting her to “immense humiliation, ridicule, unwanted speculation, harassment, harsh public scrutiny and loss of business opportunity and goodwill thereby causing tremendous stress and mental agony.”

Chadha’s lawyer further told BT, “Since the matter is sub judice, I can’t say much. But I believe that the statements against Richa Chadha are defamatory and can affect any self-respecting woman. I am sure justice will be done.”
