Actress Shweta Basu Prasad had been in the headlines ever since her arrest for allegedly being involved in a prostitution racket in Hyderabad.
Soon after her arrest, a statement got reported that Shweta Basu Prasad admitted to be involved into prostitution for financial need and she reportedly said that there are many such actresses who are into flesh trade.
Shweta Basu Prasad had been in remand home but soon after getting released from remand home, the National Award winning actress claimed that she never made such statement and all the reports were false.
The entire Shweta Basu Prasad prostitution scandal episode created a lot of hullaballo in the industry which more or less eased a little now but with Shweta denying all previous reported statements, the controversial issue has again come up.
On the other side, when Shweta Basu Prasad was passing days at the remand home, the talented actress wrote a poem 'Cliff' describing the entire scandalous episode. The poem goes like:
"Thunderstruck, all alone, I stand here at the edge of the cliff. I crawled the dense forest to get here The tribes and wild and strays They say `Jump, jump from the cliff.' As I look down, naked, cold and trembling, The ferocious sea I see with its mouth open It's ready to swallow me. The noises are unbearable the place so dark. As I decided to jump in the sea I saw the North Star. I remembered how it shone above my blessed home where singing hugging and laughter awaited me I said, `Wait I want to go home.' The voices murmured, `End the journey.' `Jump! Jump you ugly thing.' I smiled to them and pitied them, They don't know I have wings."
