Bollywood's popular fashion designer Subhash Singh's 24-year old daughter Sonali Singh has risen in defence of the rape-accused TV actor Karan Oberoi. This evening, she called up and said, "My friend Karan cannot commit this crime. I know him very well, since a long time. He was always focused on only work. This charge against him is not digestable." And how did Karan become friends with Sonali? "I did a web series with him. I styled him in that."

Does she know the girl who has accused Oberoi, we asked? "Nope. I don't know her. But Karan used to be very disturbed, he had told me that a girl was harassing him to the core since about a year. And when this #MeToo broke out in India, he was again very disturbed. He used to come on the set and tell me that the girl's harassment was subjecting him to go to Oshiwara Police Station frequently," Sonali answered.

Did Karan tell her what was the nature of that girl's torture? "Not really. All I know is that she was forcing him to marry her."

Sonali concludes by saying, "Karan may have broken up with Mona Singh (they were dating during Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin), but never spoke anything bad about her. If and when the topic of Mona arose when I was around, in fact he spoke very fondly and respectfully about her. He was never into any messing with girls. He is a gentleman."
