Bollywood actress Richa Chadha’s name was taken by Payal Ghosh who accused filmmaker Anurag Kashyap of sexually harassing her on Saturday. The ‘Fukrey’ actress has now condemned the act of falsely dragging her name into controversies. She released a statement stating that she would be taking legal action and continue to pursue her legal rights. She even took to Instagram and shared a picture of the statement that reads, “Our Client ‘Ms. Richa Chadda’, condemns the act of her name being unnecessarily and falsely dragged in a defamatory manner into controversies and allegations being recently raised by third parties.
Though our Client believes that genuinely wronged women should get justice at all costs, there are legislations that are intended to ensure that women have equal standing in their workplace and to ensure that they have a cordial workplace in which their dignity and self-respect is protected.
No woman can be allowed to misuse their liberties to harass other women with unsubstantiated or non-existent, false and baseless allegations. Our Client has initiated appropriate legal action and shall further pursue her legal rights and remedies in law as may be advised in her best interest. Sd/-
