A.First of all, you cannot record any person's conversation without their consent and secondly you cannot share anyone's private conversation in a social site like whatsapp to any person for entertainment because by doing so you are hampering their privacy and no constitution or court gives you the right to hamper anyone's privacy. Moreover, you shall be punished for defaming a lady by using the term "extra marital affair" without knowing the reality or anything. Moreover, it has evidential value!!

A.Dear cleint,
In Ambalal Sarabhai Enterprise Ltd. v KS Infraspace LLP Limited and another, the Supreme Court held that “WhatsApp messages, which are virtual verbal communications are a matter of evidence with regard to their meaning and its content to be proved during the trial by evidence in chief and cross-examination”.
