Shweta, however, claimed that she did not give such statement during her stint in the remand home. She said, "I never made that statement. I was in custody. I wasn't allowed to speak to my mother and father, then how would I speak to the media?"
Speaking about her plan to handle the situation, Shweta said, "We are in the process of tracking down the journalist and the newspaper where these fake statements originated. We are taking very strong legal action against them. I need to set this falsification right before I move on."

Earlier media reports had claimed that Shweta blamed industry people to force her into the flesh trade to earn money. Overruling such statement, Shweta asserted, "...the film industry has always been very warm and welcoming to me."
Speaking to DNA, the young actress also claimed, "The media should have waited for me to come out before making up its mind whether I was guilty or not."
23-year-old Shweta, a national award winner, was arrested from a star hotel in Hyderabad. It was reported that she was caught red handed with a few well known business tycoons. Soon after her arrest, she was sent to a remand home where she stayed for two months.
