Vidya Balan came out in favor of Rhea Chakraborty on the media trial she faced concerning the demise of her partner Sushant Singh Rajput.
Responding to actor Lakshmi Manchu, who had been very outspoken about Rhea’s media lynching, Vidya Balan wrote, “God bless you @LakshmiManchu for saying this out loud. It is so unfortunate that the tragic and untimely demise of a beloved young star Sushant Singh Rajput has become a media circus. In the same breath, as a woman, my heart breaks at the vilification of Rhea Chakraborty. Isn’t it supposed to be ‘Innocent Until Proven Guilty’, or is it now ‘Guilty Until Proven Innocent’!? Let’s show some respect for the constitutional rights of a citizen and let the law take its course.”
Taapsee Pannu too had previously extended her support to Rhea. Taapsee spoke of the vilification she faced while the investigation is still on.
The actor tweeted, “I didn’t know Sushant on a personal level nor do I know Rhea but what I know is, it only takes a human being to understand how wrong it is to overtake the judiciary to convict someone who isn’t proven guilty. Trust the law of the land for your healing and the sanctity of the deceased.”
The Central Investigation Bureau (CBI) is investigating the Sushant Singh Rajput case while ED is looking into the alleged embezzlement of funds and NCB is looking into a possible drug angle.
