For the first time, Shweta Basu broke her silence on what happened that night and the sixty days that followed and believe you me it was an eye opener.
Shweta Basu has no complaints against anyone except the journalist who during her hour of crisis made up a statement attributed to her. That statement was circulated everywhere.
“No I never made that statement. I was in custody. I wasn’t allowed to speak to my mother and father, then how would I speak to the media. Whoever made up that statement damaged my reputation by saying that all doors were closed on me. No such thing has happened and the film industry has always been very warm and welcoming to me and that people encouraged me to get into prostitution to earn money. These are outrageous lies that I never uttered.” stated a visiably hurt Shweta Basu.
According to Shweta Basu, she was never called to Hyderabad by any agent for commercial sex. She had gone there to attend an awards ceremony. She missed her flight back in the morning and her air ticket and stay were done by the organisers of the awards function and then what followed was history.
“I still have the ticket. I’ve been told that the agent has been arrested. The case is being investigated. I am a victim in the whole situation. There was a raid. I am not denying the incident. But the facts are not what they’ve been made out to be.” states Shweta.
Shweta Basu is now back home and back at work. She does not wish to go too deep into what happened, as it is a legal matter. She is completely unaffected by the entire episode. She is alive and kicking and raring to go. Life looks beautiful and hopeful.
Here’s wishing Shweta Basu all the best.
