Shweta rose to fame after she won the National Award for Best Child Artiste in 2002 for her role in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Makdee. She later featured in Nagesh Kukunoor's 'Iqbal' as Shreyas Talpade’s sister. She was also a well known face in the television industry and was known for her roles in serials like Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki and Karishma ka Karishma.

 

The 23-year-old actress released a statement after her arrest in which she confessed the crime. According to reports, she said in a statement, “I have made wrong choices in my career, and I was out of money. I had to support my family and some other good causes. All the doors were closed, and some people encouraged me to get into prostitution to earn money. I was helpless, and with no option left to choose, I got involved in this act. I'm not the only one who faced this problem, and there are several other heroines who have gone through this phase."

 

Sources said that Shweta Prasad has been sent to a Government Rehabilitation Home and will be in remand for some time now. The chargesheet will be filed within the next 10 days.
