We have been greatly disturbed by the harsh reporting on a former child actor’s alleged involvement in a prostitution racket.

All of us know how difficult it is for young child actors trying to find a foothold in this industry as adults. We urge the media to refrain from treating her life as gossip for their viewers/readers.

We also request the film fraternity to empathise rather than judge or label her. Somewhere, we are all accountable for the disillusionment of one so young.

All of us stand in complete solidarity with this fine National-award winning actor of immeasurable talent.
