After being in rescue home for two months, Swetha Basu Prasad was granted permission by the court to step out and lead a normal life. The actress spoke to a Mumbai newspaper soon after her release.
To everyone's shock, Swetha Babu accused media of reporting cooked-up stories about her and denied issuing a statement about her involvement in sex racket. "I don't have the access to talk with media during my stay in rescue home, then how can I give that statement. Never said I was forced into prostitution," she explained.
Swetha Babu revealed that her grandfather died when he was in rescue home and she wasn't able to attend the final rituals. She doubts her grandfather might have passed away because of these cooked-up stories.
Responding to the offers she has been getting in the recent past, Swetha Basu made it clear she would sign those projects only if she feels she fits into them. "I don't want to take up anything offered to me out of sympathy. Being an actor, I deserve respect," she told.
