Pooja Bhatt simply retweeted Chadha’s original post.
The actor herself took to Twitter to share a post which read, “Our consent term with certain conditions has been finalised, filed & accepted by Hon’ble High Court as an amicable settlement. No one won, no one lost. It’s a case of win-win.”
Richa Chadha had filed a defamation suit against the actor for naming her while making allegations of sexual misconduct against filmmaker Anurag Kashyap. Earlier, the actor had stated she would not apologise to Richa as she had only said what the filmmaker had mentioned to her during a conversation.
