Actor Govinda apologizes for slapping a fan 8 years ago

Actor Govinda slapped a fan during a film shoot in 2008. The incident happened when he was shooting for the film ‘Money Hai Toh Honey Hai’. The fan named Sharath Rai had filed a case against the actor in the Bombay High Court. 

However, the court had quashed his case in 2013, stating that he had filed a case a year after the incident, making it look like he was instigated to act against the actor.

He then moved to the Supreme Court of India in 2015. The court agreed to hear his plea and issued Govinda a notice and has faulted Govinda for failing to act with the grace and dignity of a public personality. 

Through the trial, Govinda's lawyers had challenged the video clip of the slap, contending that it was morphed - an argument rejected by the court. Eight years later, Govinda has now offered an unconditional apology and Rs 5 lakh to the fan he assaulted.
