Renowned producer Ekta Kapoor is standing like a strong pillar with Pearl V Puri, who was arrested under the POSCO Act and sections of the CrPC for allegedly raping a minor girl. Ekta had produced Naagin 3, Bepanah Pyaarr and Brahmarakshas 2 in which Pearl played the lead role. While the popular actor has been sent to prison for his 14 days’ judicial custody, the producer is leaving no stone unturned to prove him innocent. Now, a call between Ekta and the alleged victim's mother has been apparently leaked. A YouTube channel by the name of RDR Bharat has shared the audio clip.
In the clip, which still stands unverified by official sources, the victim's mother, who is an actress, can be heard telling Ekta that the assault didn't take place. She further alleged that her husband has falsely framed Pearl in the case. She also spoke about her troubled marriage and said her husband has been abusive. Ekta then said that she could come out in the media and clarify as Pearl's image is being tarnished. The actress denied and said she doesn't want press intervention as her daughter is involved.
The victim's mother said that she knows Pearl hasn't done anything wrong with her daughter. "Not at all. My gut feeling says it has not happened," she can be heard saying. She added that she hasn't been staying with her daughter for 1 and a half years. The actress claimed that her husband has been 'brainwashing' their daughter against her.
The actress said, "I'm with Pearl only. I'm with the truth. I have given all the statements. I have all the proofs." Towards the end of the clip, the actress said that sets of TV shows are safe as CCTVs are installed everywhere. Ekta ended the call saying she'll ask the actor to file a complaint against the victim's father. The mother agreed and encouraged Ekta to do so.
Soon after the news of Pearl's arrest broke, Ekta penned a note extending support to the actor. Apart from Ekta, television celebrities like Surbhi Jyoti, Anita Hassanandani, Aly Goni, Jasmin Bhasin, Nia Sharma, Karishma Tanna and many others came out in support of Pearl.
