Bollywood filmmaker Hansal Mehta is one of the few Bollywood celebrities to speak in support of actor Shilpa Shetty. He took to Twitter, asking everyone to leave her alone.

Actress Shilpa’s husband Raj Kundra was arrested on July 19 by the Mumbai Police for his alleged connection to a pornography racket. Shilpa has been trolled online since and has even filed a lawsuit against multiple publications and social media platforms for publishing defamatory content against her.

In his tweet, Hansal said that Shilpa should be allowed her dignity and privacy. “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 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,” he added

“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 further wrote
