The Bombay High Court is hearing a defamation suit filed by Bollywood actress Richa Chadha against actor Payal Ghosh, internet personality Kamaal R Khan, and news channel ABN Andhrajyothy.
Previously, the High Court was told that actress Payal Ghosh was willing to tender an apology and withdraw her remarks concerning Richa Chadha, which were made as part of sexual assault allegations against film director Anurag Kashyap.
During the hearing on Monday, Advocate Saveena Bedi Sachar from Lawhive associates pointed out that Payal Ghosh had put out a statement on her twitter handle right after the previous hearing stating that she will not apologize to Richa.
The High Court asked the lawyers appearing for Richa Chadha and Payal Ghosh to consider giving settlement talks another chance and deferred the hearing till today, extending its interim order.
