Actress and filmmaker Divya Khosla Kumar, who had earlier collaborated with television actor Pearl V Puri for a music video, has extended support to him.
Pearl was arrested on Friday, June 4, by the Waliv police, for an alleged rape and molestation case. He was sent to 14 days judicial custody on Saturday.
Ever since the news got out, almost the entire television industry spoke about Pearl's innocence.
Amid the allegations levelled against Pearl, Divya believes that the actor has been falsely accused of raping and molesting the minor girl on the sets of one of his shows.
Recently, Divya penned a detailed note on social media in which she said that Pearl has allegedly been framed in the case by the girl’s father who is fighting a custody battle with the girl’s mother and has used Pearl in the case for his benefit.
Divya also shared a picture of the couple posing with their daughter.
As mentioned by Divya in the post, the father had reported the incident back in 2019, however, he never named Pearl in the case and it’s only now, in 2021, that he accused the actor of molesting his daughter.
Divya also requested everyone to not let this incident ruin Pearl's career and his life.

Earlier, Ekta Kapoor had mentioned that she talked to the girl’s mother who clearly refused that such an incident ever took place.
However, on Sunday, Vasai DCP said in a press statement that the accusations are not false. The DCP revealed that there is proof and testimony from the victim to prove the charges, refuting Ekta's claims.
Pearl earned stardom for featuring in Ekta's productions Naagin 3 (2018–19) and Bepanah Pyaar (2019–20) respectively.
He was first seen in the 2013 TV show Dil Ki Nazar Se Khoobsurat, followed by Phir Bhi Na Maane...Badtameez Dil, Meri Saasu Maa and Naagarjuna – Ek Yoddha among others. He played a key role in Brahmarakshas 2.
