Sushant Singh Rajput’s girlfriend and actor Rhea Chakraborty took to social media sharing her feelings saying that she struggles to face her emotions and that his death has left an irreparable numbness in her heart. On Thursday, she also lashed out at trolls on social media especially one specific Instagram account that threatened her with rape and death.
According to NDTV, she was quoted saying, “I was called a gold digger ..I kept quiet, I was called a murderer ….I kept quiet, I was slut-shamed ….I kept quiet”
But how does my silence give you the right to tell me that you will get me RAPED and MURDERED if I don’t commit suicide @mannu_raaut? Do you realize the seriousness of what you have said? These are crimes, and by law no one, I repeat NO ONE should be subjected to this kind of toxicity and harassment. I request @cyber_crime_helpline @cybercrimeindia to please take necessary action. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.”Rhea Chakraborty, Instagram
Sushant was found hanging at his residence in Bandra, Mumbai on June 14 prompting a backlash against the Bollywood fraternity, accusing them of having a role in Rajput’s death. Quite recently the Mumbai police have been questioning Bollywood film producers and casting directors to link any foul play in the alleged suicide of Rajput on 14 June.
Chakraborty also called on Indian Home Minister Amit Shah to initiate a CBI enquiry into the late actor’s death.
