In the last few months, we’ve seen a media circus when it came to reporting about Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. While the reason of his death is still being investigated, his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty has already been tried by the country’s media and pronounced guilty. This ‘witch-hunt’ that has been carried out against Rhea hasn’t gone down well with certain film industry folk. One of the actresses who spoke openly about it was Taapsee Pannu.
Recently the actress gave an interview to a news channel and explained her stance to support Rhea Chakraborty. Taapsee said, “In this particular case, as I have always maintained, I really didn’t know her at all. I still don’t know her. The only problem I had was the kind of unfair trial that was happening and the kind of judgement that was passed on her. It’s not that before we haven’t had criminals from other industries or people being caught for doing something wrong from other industries.”
Taapsee further added, “This girl went through the media trial and physical harassment at some places, it was something very shocking and something I couldn’t hold back. I had to speak up without even knowing anything about her.”
Taapsee pointed out that this was her opinion. And what happened with Rhea, proving her guilty even before the court passed its judgement was wrong. The actress said, “There are people who support this point of view and there are people who probably have just written her off in their mind before the court or the investigative agencies have given their verdict. They want to force this opinion in everyone’s head. So I think that is wrong.”
Well said, Taapsee.
