Taapsee Pannu, Swara Bhasker, Vidya Balan, filmmaker Anubhav Sinha among others are lending their support to actor Rhea Chakraborty
After a new angle had emerged in the case of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death with regard to usage and dealing of drugs, Rhea Chakraborty appeared before the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) for further interrogation on Sunday.
In several photos making the rounds on social media platforms, Rhea was seen being mobbed by journalists, cameramen, and media personnel at the entrance of NCB office.
Several Bollywood personalities, including actors Taapsee Pannu, Swara Bhasker, and filmmaker Anubhav Sinha, criticized the media for violating all standard protocols amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Rhea’s viral photos of being heckled by countless men while the visibly uncomfortable actor made her way to the NCB office seem to have touched a nerve, and celebrities are finally questioning the treatment being meted out to Rhea Chakraborty.
Bollywood actor Taapsee Pannu wrote: “In the name of justice these people have lynched a human being off her right to live even before proven guilty. I sincerely pray karma finds the address of each and every human being part of this lowest low of mankind we are witnessing.”

I don’t know Rhea Chakraborty but am impressed by how she is holding up against the brute might of all those eager to blame her for Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. The investigations are still on. The trial is yet to start, if there is a trial in the first place. There is no evidence against her but a shrieking, hysterical media trial is on. No, it’s not easy being a woman on a crime scene. It’s worse if you were the victim’s live-in partner. You are easy prey. #justiceforsushant #justiceforrhea #stopthismediatrial #stopthishate
Swara Bhasker also took to Twitter and said this was the ‘lowest’ as a country they could stoop to.
“India… witness our lowest! Shameful witch hunt! Disgusting,” she tweeted.
Dia Mirza called media’s behavior ‘reprehensible,’ and urged everyone to stop ‘dehumanizing’ Rhea and her family.
Filmmaker Alankrita Shrivastava slammed her countrymen, writing, “No thoughts about the economy, the pandemic or anything else of consequence. Indians are only interested in burning Rhea at the stake. That is what makes our people happy and fulfilled and validated. No amount of hate and venom is enough. We are sick. Very very sick.”
Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput committed suicide at his Mumbai home on June 14. The 34-year old actor and Rhea were dating at the time of his death.
