Makdee Actress Shweta Basu Caught for Prostitution

National Award Winner, Shweta Basu was arrested in Hyderabad for involvement in a high profile sex racket.

Shweta Basu, one of the most renowned child actresses known for her performances in several movies and television shows, now 23, was arrested for prostitution in Hyderabad over the weekend.

It came as a shocker for several people who had appreciated her brilliant performances as a child star in a number of movies like ‘Makdee’, ‘Iqbal’ and ‘Darna Zaroori Hai’ besides also appearing in television soaps like ‘Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki’ and ‘Karishma Kaa Karishma.’ She had come into the limelight for winning the Best Child Artist National Award for ‘Makdee.’

The police raided a famous hotel at Banjara Hills in Hyderabad following information about an ongoing high profile sex racket on Sunday, the 31st of August. Shweta Basu was caught red-handed in the raid with several businessmen.

The actress herself confirmed her involvement in flesh trade following dire financial circumstances. “I have made wrong choices in my career and I was out of money. I had to support my family and some other good causes. All doors were closed and some people encouraged me to get into prostitution to earn money. I was helpless and with no option left to choose (from), I got involved in this. I’m not the only one who faced this problem and there are several other heroines who have gone through this phase.” Shweta said.

After her stint in Bollywood, Shwets wasn’t able to get many offers and had acted only in a few regional movies. The actress has been now been taken as a victim and not a culprit. She has been sent to a rescue home run by the Women & Child welfare department.
