Couple of weeks ago everyone was shocked to her about the prostitution scandal involving actress Shweta Basu. First it was Shweta Basu’s on screen mother; Sakshi Tanwar who came out in support of Shweta and now its the reigning queen of Bollywood, Deepika Padukone, who is standing in support of this National Award Winner.
Sakshi Tanwar is not only supporting Shweta Basu but went ahead and wrote an open letter to her onscreen daughter questioning the way Shweta Basu was being hounded by the media.
“We, the people, are so eager to pass judgments and share opinions about her on social media, but none of us have walked the hard yards in her shoes… I don’t know her reasons and problems, and I don’t know any solutions either… All I know is that she is kept in a remand home and that she has apparently given a statement accepting it. At least she has been brave enough to accept it.” write Sakshi Tanwar in her letter.
On the other hand, Deepika Padukone strongly feels that there was nothing wrong in what Shweta Basu did.
“If that was the only thing she could do to support herself and family and it was the only way she could make money, there’s nothing wrong with that. Why are we making this a scandal..why don’t we step forward and help her? I don’t think it should we look down on her for it but instead get together and support her.” stated Deepika when questioned about Shweta Basu.
While the mainstream media had been quick to write about Shweta Basu, the businessman who were involved have escaped the public glare. Her so called clients who were paying Shweta Balu for her company are as much as fault as the pimp and Shweta Basu but sadly no one has mentioned about them.
We appreciate the fact that people like Sakshi Tanwar and Deepika Padukone have come out and spoken strongly about such an important issue.
We do hope that Shweta Basu gets her life back on track soon.
