Mumbai: Actress Shweta Basu Prasad, who was recently caught in a prostitution racket, may land a role in a film directed by Hansal Mehta, who has urged the authorities to “expose” the “clients” of the National Award winning performer.
“I intend to offer Shweta Prasad a role in my next film. She was so good in ‘Makdee’,” Mehta posted on Twitter.
Several actors like Aditi Rao Hydari and Upen Patel have come forward to speak up for Shweta.
“A girl is in the news and in prison for prostitution, why not her high profile clients? We are so damn sexist… #Pathetic,” tweeted Aditi.
Upen wrote: “Breaks my heart about Shweta Prasad. Remember meeting her when she was a little girl in Iqbal .. Great actress..I’m know she will bounce bck (sic).”
