As Salman Khan has tweeted saying that he will be hosting the Bigg Boss 9 series again, the wild speculation has gone viral over who the inmates will be this year, as it brightens the dwindling careers of some.
One such name which is making rounds is of Shweta Prasad, the actress who was in sex scandal in Hyderabad before she was bailed out. Shweta Prasad is known for her role in Iqbal and Makdee in Hindi, while she was more popular in Telugu films such as 2008 debut film ‘Kotha Bangaru Lokam’, “Kasko”, “Kalavar King”, “Priyudu” and “Nuvvekaddunte Nenakkadunta”.
However, Shweta Basu denied that there was any role offer in ‘Bigg Boss 9’. Shweta Basu Prasad_Official “No I am not participating in Bigg Boss, please avoid pseudo news about it. Zero verification!”, said the actress on her Facebook page.
Shweta Basu, 24, was held in prostitution case and sent to a rescue home in Hyderabad for six months, and was released after her mother moved the Nampally sessions court a month after. She returned to Mumbai and took on the media for not respecting her privacy.
Otherwise, a talented actress, Shweta Basu was known to Telugu film viewers for her typical accent “Ekka..diki” in her debut film.
When she was arrested by the Hyderabad police on charges of prostitution after raiding a five-star hotel in Banjara Hills, her initial statement said, “I’m not the only one who faced this problem, and there are several other heroines who have gone through this phase.”
Her straight-forward approach bared open the ugly side of the film industry, which is beset with scandal, sleaze and prostitution. Several women actresses including Deepika Padukone supported her on moral grounds and Bollywood film-maker Hansal Mehta said he would offer her a role in his next film, which has has not confirmed so far.
A Bengali film she had worked 10 years ago when she was just 15, was released on August 14, titled ‘Ek Nadir Galpo’. “It’s a film I am very proud of. Also, it’s the only Bengali film I have done so far,” she said recently.
