Payal Ghosh Tenders Unconditional Apology to Richa Chadha for Defamatory Remarks

The Bombay High Court on Wednesday (14th October 2020) accepted the undertaking submitted by actor Payal Ghosh tendering an unconditional apology to actor Richa Chadha in the defamation suit against Ghosh, Kamal R Khaan, and news channel ABN Telugu and for dragging Richa Chadha's name into the allegations against filmmaker Anurag Kashyap. 

The suit against Payal Ghosh has ended but continues against the other two parties. 

The undertaking states, “Defendant No. 1 undertakes to delete all her above said statements and defamatory posts against the Plaintiff on twitter and any other media where the Defendant No. 1 has published the same and further also undertake not to state, make, publish or republish any defamatory, insulting, humiliating statements against the Plaintiff at any time in perpetuity, related to the subject matter of the present Interim Application.”

“Defendant No. 1 and the Plaintiff undertake not to file any civil and/or criminal litigation, case(s), Suit(s), complaint(s), counter-complaint(s) and/or any petition against each other before any court, forum, and or any concerned authority of India, in future in relation to the subject matter of the present Suit and Interim Application and/or otherwise and any such litigation, case(s), suit(s), complaint(s), and/or any petition already filed by the Defendant No. 1 and or Plaintiff will be withdrawn by either party against the other,” the undertaking states. 

Plaintiff’s Counsel, Senior Advocate Dr. Virendra Tulzapurkar submitted that the Court should direct both Kamaal R khan and ABN Telugu to withdraw the content put out by them based on Payal Ghosh’s remarks against the plaintiff.  

When the bench asked ABN Telugu’s counsel Advocate Nikhil Mishra about his client’s response, he informed the court that the channel will act as per Court’s injunction.
