"How many of us know that her mother has not been allowed to meet her in the remand home yet? How many of us know that the attending judge has told her mother that she is cheering up kids and other women in the remand home by talking about music and life," Sakshi added.
Continuing her statement, the actress of Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki, wrote, "Her (Shweta's) mother is feeling deprived, dejected and even defeated...and understandably so."
