"Rhea Ko Phasao Drama": Bollywood A-listers join hands against Rhea's media trail

Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Zoya Akhtar, Gauri Shine, Anurag Kashyap and Aditi Mittal, have signed in an open letter to the Indian news media against the media trial and "witch-hunt" of actor Rhea Chakraborty, who is in the centre of the investigations in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case and is now in jail in connection with a  drugs case. The letter, addressed to the "news media of India", begins with a question: "We, are worried about you. Are you feeling ok?"  It stated that you have assassinated her character, egged an online mob on demonise her and her family, fuelled wrongful demands and called her arrest your victory''.

It further added that the images of Rhea were ''pushed and shoved by media crews, with no regard for social distancing, have drawn widespread condemnation''."Endlessly violate her privacy and work overtime on false accusations and moralistic innuendo for a drama of 'Rhea ko phasao'', said the signatories in the open letter. On the other hand, over  2,500 individuals and 60 organisations have extended their support to Rhea against the media trail. After her arrest, by the NCB, several B-town celebs came out in her support. From Vidya Balan, Shweta Bachchan to Shibani Dandekar, celebs demanded #JusticeforRhea on Instagram. For the unversed, Rhea is currently lodged in a Mumbai's Byculla jail as she has been accused of organising and financing drugs for Sushant. The anti-drugs agency called her "an active member of a drugs syndicate".
