NEW DELHI: ‘Jalebi’ actress Rhea Chakraborthy has been grabbing the eyeballs in connection with the Sushant Singh Rajput death case and her involvement in drug cases. She was back in headlines again after late actor’s sister Priyanka Singh levelled some fresh allegations on her and claimed that she ruined her brother’s life.
Moreover, the NCB too claimed that actress Rhea Chakraborty and others were allegedly involved in a major criminal conspiracy to run a drugs racket, for Bollywood and other high society people. In its draft charges filed before a Mumbai Special NDPS Court on Tuesday, the NCB detailed how between March-December 2020, Rhea, her brother Showik and 34 others accused in the death case of the late Sushant Singh Rajput, were part of a plot to finance, procure, sell, transport and distribute drugs like Ganja, Charas, Cocaine, LSD to the high-profile end-users.
Now, Rhea has retorted to all the allegations levelled against her with a cryptic post on Instagram. On Friday, she took to social media and expressed views on Priyanka Singh’s statement about ruining Sushant’s life. She wrote, “Rise above the noise. Rise above the ego. Rise so above that they only point fingers at you. Because you are where they could never be. You are at peace. You fly with love. You feel compassion even when they give you no reason to. Let them wonder. You are enough. You are complete. You are lovely the way you are. Don’t let them tell you otherwise.”
