Popular TV actor Pearl V Puri was arrested on Friday evening (June 4) in connection with a minor rape case. He was arrested in Vasai in Mumbai after a complaint was filed by the victim with his mother. Shortly after the news of the arrest was heard, several television celebrities including Ekta Kapoor, Hina Khan, Nia Sharma, Aly Goni and many more gave the actor unwavering support.
The news of Pearl V Puri clearly came as a shock to the industry as Saturday morning saw a surge of support for the actor who was arrested for allegedly raping a minor. Many said he was falsely accused. However, on Saturday afternoon he was taken into custody for 14 days after a court hearing.
Karishma Tanna also posted a photo with Puri on Saturday afternoon and said he was released on bail. However, this turned out to be wrong. Various other celebrities have written in favor of the Naagin actor including his co-stars. Actress Nia Sharma wrote on Instagram: “Rape is no joke, no excuse, no way to address someone to satisfy a bruised ego. The stories of rape and assault are terrifying and far beyond imagination in India. The real victims die, their stories go unheard, their families wait for justice all their lives. Do not put them down. Do not laugh. Allegations of rape cannot be used at will. It can’t. It shouldn’t. @pearlvpuri sorry that happened to you. “
Actor Surbhi Jyoti tweeted: “I’ve worked with him. I know him very well. He’s a very kind and humble human being. I’m by his side. #Istandwithpearl #letthetruthprevail @pearlvpuri.” Aly Goni said he’s the nicest guy and said the news can’t be true. On a related note, Hina Khan also took inspiration from his Instagram stories and said he is one of the kindest souls.

Meanwhile, Ekta Kapoor posted a lengthy note where she claims to have spoken to the mother of the victim who confirmed Pearl’s innocence and that it is a story made up by the father of the victim to win a custody battle.
