In the letter, Chrisann wrote, “Dear Warriors, It took me three weeks and five days to find pen and paper in jail. After I washed my hair with Tide and made coffee using toilet water, I watched Bollywood movies, sometimes with tears in my eyes knowing my ambition brought me here. I sometimes smile at our culture, our movies and the familiar faces on TV. I feel proud to be an Indian and belong to the Indian film industry.”
She further thanked those, including her mom, dad, friends, media, police and churches, who had faith in her during the trial and added, “You are the real warriors while I am just a pawn in this dirty game played by these ‘Mansters’. I am forever grateful to everyone who tweeted and reshared my story to arrest the real criminals facilitating international organised crime. We are a great powerful nation and I cannot wait to return home. Thank you for saving my life and the lives of other innocent people who fell prey to this scam. May justice always prevail.”
Chrisann was arrested earlier this month in Sharjah after drugs were found in a trophy that she was carrying. Her family had alleged that the actor had been framed. Recently, the Mumbai Crime Branch arrested two people, a baker named Anthony Paul and his associate Rajesh Babhote alias Ravi, on charges of framing the actor in connection with the alleged drugs-smuggling case.
A metropolitan magistrate court in Mumbai on Tuesday remanded the two arrested people to police custody till May 2. The two were arrested for allegedly framing actor Chrisann Pereira, and four others. Meanwhile, the actor is likely to reach India in two days, Joint Commissioner of Police (crime) Lakhmi Gautam said on Wednesday.
Chrisann has worked in Sadak 2 and Batla House. She also appeared in the web series Thinkistan and was a part of plays like Three Women, Drumroll and Sundays.
