I Was Never Forced Into Prostitution, Says Shweta Basu

National Award winning actress, Shweta Basu, who was recently released from the rescue shelter after being allegedly caught in a ‘prostitution racket’ two months ago, has broken her silence on the controversy.

Talking to a national news paper, Shweta said that she was never forced into prostitution and that there was no dearth of work for her in the film industry. She has slammed a news report which was attributed to her. The actress apparently made no statement before going to the rescue home. She had no access to the outside world and wasn’t even allowed to speak with her parents. So the question of her interacting with the press couldn’t have risen.

“I’ve no complaints against anyone except the journalist who during my hour of crisis made up a statement attributed to me. That statement was circulated everywhere. I had no idea about it as I had no access to newspapers or websites for two months. It’s only now that I came to know of this,” the newspaper quoted the actress as saying.
