Shweta Basu finally breaks her silence on sex racket

The promising actress was recently arrested from a luxurious hotel in Hyderabad on the charges of prostitution. The court ordered her to a rescue home. After spending a couple of months at the rescue home, she is finally released and returned to Mumbai to join her family. Finally the actress has come forward to share her story about the infamous prostitution scandal in which she was accused to be involved.

The actress replying to the question about her experience in this scandal stated that, “I came home on Friday. I've no complaints against anyone except the journalist who during my hour of crisis made up a statement attributed to me. That statement was circulated everywhere. I had no idea about it as I had no access to newspapers or websites for two months. It's only now that I came to know of this.”

Elaborating on the issue of her being falsely quoted, Shweta added that, “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. We're in the process of tracking down the journalist and the newspaper where these fake statements originated. We are taking very strong legal action against them. I need to set this falsification right before I move on.”

The lady also argued that the national media should have waited for her to speak before deciding to mark her as guilty. When Shweta was asked how she ended up in such a situation, she replied, “I hadn't been called to Hyderabad by any agent for commercial sex. I had gone to there to attend an awards ceremony. Call it fate or whatever, I missed my flight back in the morning. My air ticket and stay were done by the organisers of the awards function. 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.”
