Earlier, she shared a screenshot of the mobile phone where her lawyer was not allowed to enter her residence but people from media were. She wrote, “While members of the Press were allowed to go up and continue interviewing Ms. Ghosh, the person from my legal team was stopped from serving her the legal notice at the gate of her residence this evening.”
After Payal Ghosh denied to accept the legal notice, Richa shared, “Update : soft copy of the legal notice has been sent to Ms. Ghosh. My person along with a person from my lawyers office, went to hand deliver the hard copy of the notice to her residence, which she/representative refused to take delivery of. We’ve got the refusal on video.”
Richa sent a legal notice to Payal for ‘unnecessarily and falsely dragging’ her name into her allegations of sexual assault against Anurag Kashyap. Payal in her statement claimed that the filmmaker told her that actors such as Richa, Mahie Gill, Huma Quereshi would perform sexual favours for him and he expected same from her.
Speaking about Richa’s legal notice, Payal told Bollywood Hungama, “That is not my version, that is what Anurag Kashyap told me. I said what he told me. I didn’t know him. I didn’t know the other girls. I don’t have any idea about the others. I didn’t even know them personally, so why should I take their name? Who are they? There is no question of anybody’s name from my side. It is him who told me,” she said, adding, “She (Richa Chadha) should go and ask Anurag Kashyap why did he take her name.”
On Monday, Richa released a statement issued by her lawyer and said, “No woman should 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.”
