Moushumi Chatterjee is one of the few actors in the history of Indian cinema, who proved that acting is still the biggest factor behind an actor's success. Once, in an old interview with Lehren, Moushumi admitted that she was never under any kind of pressure as she already had what she wanted back then.

Things took an ugly turn when Dicky Sinha filed a defamation case against his mother-in-law, Moushumi Chatterjee. Once in an old interview with SpotboyE, Dicky revealed that Moushumi didn't attend her daughter's funeral and terahvin. He further added that his wife, Payal was in coma for over two-and-half years. Dicky also shared the details of her wife's medical condition and revealed that she was revived twice. She said:

"Moushumi did not even see Payal's face after she died. She wasn't at the funeral, she neither came to the mortuary. Her father and her sister Megha came only at the funeral. Payal was in coma for nearly two-and-half years, but twice, we managed to revive her a bit and even make her walk with support. However later, her nephro system gave way leading to several complications. During this whole illness, she was operated twice; and once even a brain surgery was done."

The feud between Moushumi Chatterjee and Dicky Sinha is reportedly still on. The cracks went too deep after the demise of Payal Mukherjee, who passed away in December 2019 at the age of 45. Both families are reportedly not in contact with each other, and things are at a point where both sides are no longer interested in mending their ways.
