PeepingMoon.com exclusively got in touch with Pooja, who was highly emotional as she confirmed the news to us. "I had tears in my eyes when I got the news, it has been a long month and a gruesome one too. Karan has gone through a lot and I would just like to say that this #MeToo movement needs justice in both men and women’s case. I am happy and thankful that he has got bail.”
On being asked when is she planning to meet Karan, an elated Pooja revealed to us, “As its weekend I am not sure when will he be out, but mostly next week I shall meet him.”
Last month, Pooja along with the members of Karan's music band Band Of Boys spoke about how it was "unfortunate to see such a kind man being subjected to something like this; the reputation damage, the family trauma, all these are unacceptable to me. There are a number of cases where women are not using the law, they are misusing the law," quoted the actress.
