Bollywood star Dutt has been sentenced to five years in prison in March for a 1993 weapons conviction linked to a deadly terror attack in Mumbai that killed 257 people.
In her blog, Trishala Dutt, who lives in New York, wrote: “I’ve been harassed as to why I’m so silent on the subject but all I want to say is this – I’ve become an elder sister to my twin siblings Iqra & Sharaan. It’s up to me to be strong for them and set a good example for them being the eldest daughter of the house. There’s no such thing as having an “emotional breakdown” anymore. I love my father to death and I will always be his blood, his first born, his everything.
“I’m just sick of people making stupid assumptions as to why I wasn’t there in India by his side during the time of judgment, why I’m silent, why am I posting pictures on Instagram acting all happy.”
She added: “Did it ever occur to some of your “curious” minds that maybe my father told me NOT to come?? My family is going thru an extremely difficult time right now and I haven’t been seen in Mumbai since Jan 2007. There was so much media when I came there at that time, I didn’t want to create such a drama especially at this time.”
