Pearl V Puri, a popular television actor known for doing roles in shows like Naagin and Bepanah Pyar Hai, has been granted bail. Pearl was accused of allegedly raping and molesting a minor in 2019 who was the daughter of his co-star in Bepanah Pyar Hai.
Early this morning, the 31-year old actor was granted bail after he was convicted by the court on June 4th. The actor's lawyer Rajeev Sawant confirmed the news to the press. The lawyer had earlier applied for Pearl's bail on June 7th but his plea was rejected by the court. The actor got massive support from his friends and colleagues from the television industry. Anita Hassanandani, Karishma Tanna, Aly Goni and Ekta Kapoor came in support of the actor and accused the victim's father of framing him falsely.
Divya Khosla Kumar penned a long note on social media where she also disclosed the identity of the minor's parents and called them out for lying. Divya also revealed that the minor's mother especially had a telephonic conversation where she accused her husband of lying. "I am supporting Pearl because I've myself have worked with this man and have seen how he respects women. There were women on sets of all departments, did anyone feel that this guy is a pervert. No. He's a guy with good moral values. May the truth wins," she had written in her post.
