The actor has been charged under the POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences) act, and he was denied bail on June 11. Now, a throwback video is going viral on social media, and it shows Pearl talking about respecting women.
Akanksha Puri, while showing her support for Pearl, had said that Pearl couldn’t do something like this, and that he respects women a lot. Now, the throwback video that surfaced on social media shows Pearl Puri telling his fans that one should respect women at all costs. “Agar aap ladkiyon ko izzat nahi de rahe ho, toh aap izzat ke laayak hi nahi ho. Unko izzat dena baahot zaroori hai, unka khush rehna bahot zaroori hai, kyunki agar woh khush rahengi toh duniya khush rahegi,” he said in the throwback video.
Meanwhile, Ekta Kapoor also showed her support to Pearl Puri. In a social media post, she claimed that the survivor’s mother had told her that Pearl Puri was innocent.

Just few days back minor’s father’s lawyer concluded the statement and wrote that his client requests all with ‘folded hands’ to ‘let judiciary do their job.’ “My client who is a middle-class man is very deeply hurt by all these accusations because he is fighting all alone in this battle supporting the child. Is trying to get justice for a year 5-year-old child against rape such a big crime that everyone is being judgemental about the father rather than actually knowing facts from the police. With folded hands, my client requests that everyone lets the judiciary do their job and stop accusing my daughter of being a liar,” he opined.
