Supreme Court closes case against Govinda for slapping

The slapping case against Bollywood actor Govinda has been closed by the Supreme Court after nine years.

The case was filed by Santosh Ray who was slapped by Govinda in 2008.

The Supreme Court closed the case after Govinda gave an unconditional apology to Santosh Bateshwar Ray.

The actor had slapped the man when he had gone to watch shooting of Govinda's film Money Hai Toh Honey Hai. The incident was also recorded on camera.

Earlier the Bombay High Court had ruled the case out, saying there was no material against the actor.

The reason behind the slap is not clear, however, reports say that Govinda was annoyed by Santosh’s behavior.
