Swetha Basu Prasad, who was sent to rehabilitation center on the charges of prostitution, is now gaining sympathy from all quarters. Ace director SS Rajamouli extended his support to Swetha. He tweeted, ” Fantastically written!!!Do we have answers???”
In support of the questions raised by Sakshi Tanwar, Rajamouli posted the above tweet. Sakshi Tanwar was the onscreen mother of Swetha Basu Prasad, who was seen Swetha’s mother in a TV serial 14 years ago. Sakshi questions, ” “My daughter is not a criminal, why is her name being maligned like this? What if this irresponsible reporting along with her photographs by the media has a long-lasting scarring impact on her? What if tomorrow she finds it impossible to carry the bitter remains of her life and takes a drastic step, God forbid…Her mother and many other women, including me, want to know the answers to some more questions.
Why has the large section of media been so selective in highlighting the girl? Why the names and photographs of the businessmen not splashed all over, like the girl’s? Why have those men been granted the right to privacy and not the girl? Is she a soft target just because she is an actor and a public figure? Why is our moral police quiet about this? In a country where even rapists and murderers are given the right to privacy, why has her right been violated? Why this irresponsible insensitive stand against her?”
