Hansal Mehta comes out in support of Shilpa Shetty: If you cannot stand up for her at least leave Shilpa Shetty alone and let the law decide? – Times of India

Hansal Mehta has come out in support of Shilpa Shetty. The actress has been getting trolled over social media since the arrest of her husband Raj Kundra in a pornography case. The actress also filed a defamation suit against several media outlets for defamatory reports.

Now, Hansal Mehta posted a series of tweets in support of Shetty. He posted, “If you cannot stand up for her at least leave Shilpa Shetty alone and let the law decide? Allow her some dignity and privacy. It is unfortunate that people in public life ultimately are left to fend for themselves and are proclaimed guilty even before justice is meted out.”

The filmmaker also lashed out at Bollywood celebs for remaining silent on this matter. He wrote, “This silence is a pattern. In good times everybody parties together. In bad times there is deafening silence. There is isolation. No matter what the ultimate truth the damage is already done.”

He concluded by saying, “This vilification is a pattern. If the allegations are against a film person there is a rush to invade privacy, to pass sweeping judgement, to character-assassinate, to fill ‘news’ with trashy gossip – all at the cost of individuals and their dignity. This is the cost of silence.”

Meanwhile, the Bombay HC has noted that passing a blanket gag order on the media against reporting anything against her shall have a “chilling effect on the freedom of the press.”
