Actress and filmmaker Divya Khosla Kumar has spoken out about TV actor, Pearl V Puri, who has been accused of molesting a minor.
Kumar took to Instagram questioning the alleged victim’s parents role in the case and how the actor was on the verge of signing a big film, which is now questionable.
She said, “It’s a very serious charge, and it will have far-reaching repercussions on Pearl’s career. He was just starting out in life. Television had given him stardom. And I can tell you, he was on the verge of signing a very big film. Now everything is lost.”
Kumar sent her thoughts to Puri’s mother, she added, “Pearl lost his father some time ago. His mother who is not well at all calls me and just cries and cries asking for my help. I feel helpless and angry. I know Pearl well. We’ve worked together. He is a good human being, sincere and hardworking. He doesn’t deserve this. On what grounds have they booked him for such serious charges? This is the frightening side of the #MeToo movement whereby a man’s career and reputation are destroyed, families are ruined.”
She further stated, “These are simple godfearing people from Agra who have no clue as to how to tackle the situation. I am glad Ekta Kapoor spoke up for Pearl. More people need to come forward in his support because I truly believe he is innocent. What is being done to him by some vested interests is horrific. It should not happen to anyone.”
