Hansal Mehta comes to defend Shilpa Shetty, asks people to ‘Leave her alone’

‏Shilpa Shetty has been in the news ever since her husband and businessman Raj Kundra was arrested in a pornographic case on July 19. The actress has already been questioned by the Mumbai Police Crime Branch two times in connection to the case. Continuing all of this social media users are trolling Shilpa and Raj for the alleged case. Now filmmaker Hansal Mehta has come in defence of the actress. The filmmaker took to her Twitter handle and defended her asking people to leave her alone.

The Hungama 2 actor had to file a defamation suit at the Bombay High Court against media publications and social media platforms for publishing defamatory content against her.

In his tweet, Hansal Mehta wrote, “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”.

He further 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.”

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

Meanwhile, according to the reports Shilpa following the defamation suit of the actress the Bombay High Court directed a few media platforms to take down their contents on Friday.
