Anupam has been supporting hubby Ahuja, who is accused of raping his 18-year-old maid servant in June 2009. Shiney's woman believes that the entire case is a frame up that was set to ruin the actor's stardom. "The motive could be greed or the motive could be jealousy because of his rising fame. I am not at liberty to speculate now. The fact is that it is a frame up - 100 per cent. At this point, all I can tell you is that there were forces at work to bring him down. I can reveal more after the court case comes to a close," she added.
Anupam who has been struggling for justice with Shiney for three years says that their spirit has not been broken. She is determined to support her husband until her last breath. When asked about her endless support to Shiney, Anupam told (Gulf News), “It was the right thing to do. It wasn't a choice or a decision to be made. It was the most obvious decision to make. You don't abandon a man who is innocent and you don't abandon the truth either. It was horrific... this whole thing. But when you know this thing is absolutely false - you don't walk away. You don't walk away from people you love. You stand by them when they have been wronged. It was that which kept me going and it was that which kept the entire family going."
Anupam also says that due to his growing celibacy, the 'Woh Lamhe' star became a soft target for this evil motif. “Definitely, he was a soft target. With films like Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi and Gangster, he had fame but did not have the clout or a network in Bollywood. If anybody were to target him, he is a perfect target - completely soft," she explains.
Showing her belief on Shiney, Anupam told that he always believed that 'talent will speak' for itself, therefore never thought of making a huge network of people at his work place, which acted as an opposite force for his case.
Talking about their next move, Anupam informed, “We will go ahead and continue with the legal aspects of fighting the case in the higher courts. In the meantime, it's going to be a time for rehabilitation for our family. We want to start rebuilding our life and continue walking."
