The Hindi tv trade was in a state of shock yesterday as actor Pearl V Puri of Naagin fame was arrested by the Mumbai Police for allegedly raping a minor. As information of his arrest hit the information, his colleagues from the trade, Anita Hassanandani, Krystle D’Souza, Karishma Tanna, Ekta Kapoor and others got here out in assist of the actor. Kapoor, the doyen of the TV trade, had even written in a social media caption that she had spoken to the minor’s mom who allegedly proclaimed Puri’s innocence.
However, in an announcement, Vasai DCP Sanjay Kumar Patil stated that the accusations in opposition to the actor usually are not false. When questioned about Kapoor’s tackle the difficulty, he stated: “No, the accusations are not false. His name has come up in the investigation. There is evidence against him. That is why police has arrested him. The truth will be decided in the trial.”
In her Instagram caption, Kapoor had written: “Will I support a child molester…or a molester of any kind? But what I witnessed from last night to now, was the absolute low in human depravity. How can humanity go to this level? How can people who are upset with each other, drag a third person into their own fight? How can a human being take on another human being and do this? After various calls with the child‘s/girl’s mother, who openly said that Pearl was not involved and it’s her husband trying to create stories to keep her child and prove that a working mother on a set cannot take care of her kid.”
“If this is true then it is wrong on so many levels! Using an extremely important movement like ‘Me Too’ frivolously, to get your own agendas met with and mentally torturing a child and making an innocent person guilty. I have no right to decide, the courts will decide who is right & wrong. My opinion only comes from what the girl’s mother said to me last night & that is – Pearl is innocent …and it is very very sad if people are using various tactics to prove working mothers are unable to take care of their children, because there are predators on the set,” she added.
