Govinda's lawyer informed the Supreme Court that the actor was ready to offer an unconditional apology and pay a compensation of Rs five lakh to the fan.
     
"I am sorry...I have been asked to say sorry and I am saying it. I have done everything what I have been asked by the judiciary to do," Govinda said at a press conference in Mumbai
    
 "I hold no bitterness against the fan and had done everything to the satisfaction of the judiciary and the fan”, said the actor.
     
"He(the victim) wanted me to give him respect, an unconditional apology and compensation for all the monetary loss he has suffered all these years. I have done all this in accordance with the Supreme Court's decision. I have already met him and will meet him again," Govinda added.

Advocate Jatin Zaveri appearing for complainant Santosh Bateshwar Ray, alleged that Govinda did not apologise personally and tried to mediate through his lawyer.
    
When the bench sought Govinda's response on this, his lawyer asked the court to grant two weeks time to which it agreed.

The Apex Court had in November last year advised the actor to apologise to the complainant. The actor, however, refused to give details about the compensation.
