Right from the Balaji head, Ekta Kapoor, to his co-stars such as Surbhi Jyoti, Karishma Tanna, Anita Hassanandani, Aly Goni and others, the whole film industry backed the actor. Almost everyone is of the same opinion, that Pearl could never do something like this. Ekta even shared a post on her social media alleging that she had a conversation with the minor girl’s mother, who claimed Pearl to be innocent and said that this was all her husband’s doing.
