Govinda yesterday offered to pay a compensation of Rs 5 lakh and apologise to the fan he slapped in 2008.
The Supreme Court has also asked the actor to meet the complainant, Santosh Rai, within two weeks. Santosh was slapped by Govinda on the set of his film, Money Hai Toh Honey Hai (2008), at Filmistan Studio.
The actor had reportedly done so because Santosh had entered the set without permission and was seen troubling some background female dancers.
