Pearl wrote, “Life has its own way of testing people! I lost my nani ma few momths back, then on her 17th day I lost my dad post that my mother got diagnosed with cancen and then this ghastly aacusation. Last couple of weeks were gruelling for me like a nightmare. I was, overnight, made to feel like a criminal. Al of this in the midst of my mother’s cancer treatment, it shattered my sense of security, making me feel helpless. I am still numb…but I felt it’s time to reach out to my friends, fans and well-wishers who’ve showered me with their love, support and concern. Thank you for keeping faith in me and I am a firm believer of #Satyamevjayate. I trust in the law, judiciarry of my country & God up there. Please keep your duas coming (sic)."
