Well now, the man filed the defamation case against the actress, through Advocate Vikas Pahwa under section 499 and 500 of the Indian Penal Code in Saket Court, New Delhi.

“The mental agony caused to the complainant is continuing every day since close friends and colleagues are contacting him and his family on a continuous basis and expressing displeasure over the content posted by the accused. Many members of the public have been expressing doubts on the integrity and moral character of the complainant believing the false and defamatory statements to be true,” the plea filed by Pahwa read.

Posting a picture of the Delhi-based businessman on Twitter, Esha wrote, “The man who thinks staring at a woman all night and making her uncomfortable is okay. He did not touch me or say anything. But through out, stared. Not as a fan, not because I am an actor, but because I am a woman. Where are we safe? Is being a woman a curse?”
