Television actresses, Nia Sharma and Devoleena Bhattacharjee, who were engaged in an ugly brawl on Twitter the other day over the Pearl V Puri alleged rape case, cooled things off by publicly apologizing to each other. Nia wrote on Instagram, “My mom, brother and Ravi very lovingly told me I wasn’t right and considering the three close ones can’t be wrong. …so Here I go. Hey @devoleena I may have crossed a line in being personal…I’m sorry. It was impulsive. Hope you’ll forget.”
Devoleena responded to her post and wrote, “Hey Nia Sharma that is ok. Forgive me too if I have hurt you though that wasn’t my intention at all. Convey my regards to your mom, brother and Ravi. Stay safe and take care.” Nia tweeted back her apology and wrote, “Ending where it started! ‘Sorry’ once again.” Devoleena also retweeted it and responded “Seems like never started. As i said badi badi sehero mein choti choti ladayee hoti rehti hai. Accept my apologies too.”

How did the verbal brawl start between actors Nia Sharma and Devoleena Bhattacharjee?
On June 5, Nia Sharma had tweeted a post in support of Pearl V Puri. “Dear privileged Girls and Women, Do not make the heinous allegations of rape and molestation so frivolous and casual that it ceases to hold any value for posterity. @pearlvpuri. You have my support (sic).” Reacting to it, Devoleena Bhattacharjee wrote, “Har ek cheez ka mazaak banakar rakha hai. Support karna hai na? So go to the police station, court. Go & fight there. But atleast dont get your dirty mind here to talk shit about that little girl.Blood go & do candle march there to release him (sic).”
The actress further wrote, “Your social media handles are not going to help him.But karma will surely hit back to each one of you who is cursing that little 7yrs old girl.Kaise log ho yaar tum log..Dharne pe baitho,Bhook hartal karo,dikhao apna support..but gandagi mat phelao..kya gandagi macha rakhi hai (sic).” But things turned worse when Nia made a personal attack on Devoleena. She tweeted, “Didi ko koi bata do dharna and candle march nahi kar sakte pandemic hai abhi bhi. Also Didi needs to practice her dance before she makes those pathetic dance reels thinking she’s nailing them (sic).”
Devoleena reacted, “Please Choti ko koi bato do sirf fashion skills dikhane se koi insaan nahi banta hai.Acchi soch aur acche dil ki zarurat hoti hai jiski kami dikh rahi hai.And whether i nailed my reels or no let my fans decide.Yahan pe bhi judge ban gayee.Rather focus on your photoshoots (sic).” She added, “And waise all my tweets were for those who are abusing,trolling & cursing ,naming the 7 yrs old girl a gold digger.Mirchi choti ko kyun lagi?Or May be she is one of them who reacts reading articles without checking the truth & facts (sic).”
Later, several TV celebrities came in support of Peral V Puri including Ekta Kapoor, Anita Hassanandani, Surbhi Jyoti, Aamir Ali, Arjun Bijlani, Krystle Dsouza, Shalin Bhanot, Adhvik Mahajan and Sheetal Dabholkar.
