Deepika openly voiced in favour of Shweta and urged everyone to support the girl. The actress said "Let me put it this way – if that was the only thing she could do to support herself and family and it was the only way she could make money, there’s nothing wrong with that."

Deepika urged people not to make the issue a scandal rather come forward to support the actress in hard time. The actress further said that instead of looking down at her it’s time to come forward and support her.

Celebs like Sakshi Tanwar and Hansal Mehta were the first ones to extend their support to the accused actress while Rani Mukerji who was last seen saving a bunch of girls from a prostitution racket onscreen, chose to stay mum on the issue.

Shweta was arrested in Hyderabad on August 31. She is currently lodged in a remand home.
