Making a move in the complete row is Richa Chadha. The actor on her Twitter handle shared a statement by her lawyer. The statement condemns her name being dragged. At the same time, it reads that Chadha believes that genuinely wronged women should get justice.

Richa’s statement 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 an 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 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.”

Meanwhile, before Richa Chadha, Anurag Kashyap also issued a statement in which he called all the allegations false and baseless. What do you have to say about this? Let us know in the comments section below.
