“We all enjoy your movies and you are a great actor but we cannot tolerate your action of slapping. You don’t need to pay money for it. Even expressing regret is more than enough. Your prestige would not go down by expressing regret. Have a large heart and apologise.”The Court also asked the actor to meet the victim, Suresh Rai, in person and apologise within two weeks, reports ANI.
“Today in the court his lawyer offered me Rs. five lakh and said that he (Govinda) would apologise. He has not personally apologised, but his lawyer and secretary did.”
He says he is not satisfied with the offer.
