Richa Chadha to take legal action for being named in Anurag Kashyap row 

Anurag was recently accused by a female actor of sexually harassing her 

Published: 21st September 2020

Richa Chadha, via her lawyer, has issued a statement on her name being mentioned in the sexual harassment allegations against Anurag Kashyap. Recently, a female actor accused Anurag of forcing himself on her in an interview with ABP Telugu. In her interview, the actor claimed Anurag had told her ‘it is okay’, since other actors like Richa, Huma Qureshi and Mahie Gill were ‘just a call away’. 

In the statement, Richa’s lawyer mentioned that her client “condemns the act of her name being unnecessarily and falsely dragged in a defamatory manner into controversies and allegations,” adding that she has initiated ‘appropriate legal action’ against the same.
