Supreme Court has asked actor Govinda to meet and apologise the man he slapped in 2008. Also, he has offered to pay a compensation of amount Rs 5 lakh. The actor had allegedly slapped Santosh Rai while shooting for ‘Money Hai To Honey Hai’ at Filmistan Studio.
SC has granted him a two weeks time to do the same.
Reportedly, the actor had done so because the fan had entered the sets without any permission and was seen molesting and troubling the extra girls on the sets.
Rai filed a case in the Bombay High Court. The court had, however, quashed his case in 2013, saying that Rai had filed the case a year after the incident, making it look like he was instigated to act against the actor.
Rai then moved to the Supreme Court. Rai alleged that the actor humiliated him in front of the public.
Rai said that he had come to Mumbai to become an actor. However, he was slapped by Govinda and felt very humiliated. He had also claimed that he had allegedly spent Rs 5 to 6 lakh on lawyers’ fees.
