Actor Taapsee Pannu has come out to support Rhea Chakraborty and condemn the media trials that have been going on in Sushant Singh Rajput death case. She wrote on Twitter, “I didn’t know Sushant on a personal level nor do I know Rhea but what I know is, it only takes to be a human to understand how wrong it is to overtake judiciary to convict someone who isn’t proven guilty. Trust the law of the land for your sanity and the deceased’s sanctity.”
Taapsee also said in an interview that media is trying to make perception and is giving a verdict in the case while the CBI and the court are yet to reach to a conclusion.
Her statement comes after seeing how Rhea Chakraborty has been targeted and declared a murderer by media and people in general. She stresses on the fact that one is innocent until proven guilty.
Lakshmi Manchu also comes in support:
Actor, writer and producer Lakshmi Manchu also penned a note on Twitter that reads, “I see so many people so silent because the media has made a monster out of a girl. I don’t know the truth and I want to know the truth and I hope the truth will come out in the most honest way. I have complete trust in the judiciary system and all the agencies that are involved in bringing justice to Sushant. But until then we can restrain ourselves from being evil and cruel and lynching of person and her entire family without knowing the facts.”
She further added, “I can only imagine the pain the entire family is going through with these so-called media trials. If something like this happened to me, I would want my colleagues stand up for me, at least the ones that know me to say back off, hang on, leave her alone and I ask all of you to do the same. Back off, hang on, leave her alone until the entire truth if officially released. I am pained by what we have become. How are we being authentic if we don’t speak our heart when we have a voice to lend. I’m standing up for my colleague.”
Meanwhile, the CBI is still investigating the case and has rigorously interrogated Rhea Chakraborty.
