Divya Khosla Kumar On Pearl V Puri Rape Charges: “He Was On The Verge Of Signing A Big Film, Now Everything Is Lost” - EXCLUSIVE
“Who will be accountable for  his aborted career if and when he is proven not guilty?” actress-filmmaker Divya Khosla wonders aloud when we speak about the fate of TV star Pearl V Puri, accused of molesting a minor. Divya  wrote a long Instagram post questioning the alleged victim’s parents role in the  case against Pearl and also  opining that Pearl was no more than  a scapegoat  in an ugly child-custody battle.

Says Divya distressfully,  “It’s a very serious charge, and it will have far-reaching repercussions on Pearl’s career. He was just starting out in life. Television had given him stardom. And I can tell you, he was on the verge  of signing a very big film. Now everything is lost.”

Divya’s heart goes out to Pearl’s mother. “Pearl lost his father some time  ago. His mother who is not well at all calls me and just cries and cries asking for my help. I feel helpless and angry. I know Pearl well. We’ve worked  together. He is a good human being, sincere and hardworking. He doesn’t deserve this. On what  grounds have they booked  him for such serious charges? This is the frightening side of the  #MeToo movement whereby a man’s career and reputation are destroyed, families are ruined.”

Divya wants to do all that she can to help Pearl and his  family. “These are simple godfearing people from Agra who have no clue as to  how to tackle the situation. I  am glad Ekta Kapoor spoke up  for Pearl. More people  need to come forward  in his support,because  I  truly believe he is innocent. What  is being done to him  by some vested interests  is  horrific. It should  not happen to anyone.”

Divya brings up Sushant Singh Rajput’s case  and feels Pear is in a similar situation.  “I didn’t know Sushant at  all. But  my heart reached out to him. In this case, I know  Pearl.I am convinced  he can’t  do something so awful. He is  being used  to settle scores.”
