It has been over 3 months since the demise of Sushant Singh Rajput and his death investigation is currently being done by CBI and other agencies. Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik were arrested a week back in allegations of alleged drug procurement that was linked to Sushant's case. Amid this, several celebs came out and backed Rhea and demanded her vilification should stop. Saqib Saleem opened up about demanding justice for Sushant and Rhea on social media and now, in an interview, he explained why he did so. 

In a chat with Hindustan Times, Saqib said that Rhea has been a friend and in such time, it was his duty to stand by her and her family. Further, he said that he lost faith in news channels and claimed that the 'vilification' of one person by them is 'sad.' Further, he mentioned the job of news channels is to just report facts and not give a narrative to people. He called it sad. Talking about justice for Sushant, he said that the loss of the actor is 'unfortunate' and that there are several agencies like CBI, ED, NCB who are investigating what happened to him as no one knows anything about it. 

He said that he wants justice for both Rhea and Sushant. Talking about Rhea, Saqib said, "It is heart-breaking as Rhea is a friend of mine and as a friend, it is my responsibility to stand by her and her family at this time. Having said that, the case is in court and I hope and pray that the Indian judiciary gives a fair result of what happened. We all want to know what has happened." Recently, when Saqib came out and backed Rhea on social media along with others, he received atrocious hate messages and he decided to make them public. 

Here is Saqib Saleem's post:

He even spoke about it in the chat. He said that actors have become soft targets and that the image of the industry is being tarnished. He claimed that most of the stuff being said on social media is 'propaganda.' However, he hoped that the truth would be out soon. Meanwhile, Rhea is in Byculla Jail and the CBI is probing the case while the Enforcement Directorate is probing the money laundering angle alleged by Sushant's father KK Singh. Sushant was found dead on June 14, 2020. 

Meanwhile, the actor recently left Twitter amid the negativity and is only using Instagram. On the work front, he will be seen in Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone starrer '83. The film is a biopic of Kapil Dev and Team India's world cup victory. It is yet to get a new release date. However, rumours are rife that it may release on Christmas 2020.

SSR family and fans are big time losers . They want to blame the whole world for his actions . He was an ordinary actor making calculated moves to climb up the ladder. He was not an Einstein, not extra ordinary , not a saint , not a good person . By all means he was just another lad trying to prove himself and got lost and could not handle success

This nobody puts a statement for publicity. Mr. Who are you, nobody cares what you think. We all know there is a drug nexus in btown, and we will find out who are the so called “star” engaging in drugs. You wan to support your drug peddler/ consumer friend? What type of friend are you? The fact that you have distorted view of friendships says who u are as a person. Shut up and let MCB do it’s job.

Stop all these conspiracy theories and be honest to yourself. No one is perfect and even the most talented has their vices and dark side! Everyone dies and over 99% dies because of some illness either physical or mental. Stop trying to find a person to blame for SSR death because there is no one to blame! This is same as someone trying to blame someone else for their failures! Specially with health, how can you blame someone else if you have bad physical or mental health? There is no motive for anyone to kill SSR and it is plain and simple. Crores of other Indians richer than SSR are walking free and no one is killing them and no one is killing the 3.1 crores of Indians that smoke weed! Let us wait for few more days for CBI to clearly explain SSR death. In the mean time pleas stop blaming others!

morons on here do not even know how to use the word "drug peddler". A celebrity genius star actor procuring weed with the help of people around him and one of them is RC. That is not drug peddling. I would think most celebrities use people that work for them or their relatives/cousins to buy them weed while they stay clear. We all saw videos of SSR and RC smoking and chilling. If he were alive now, he would have been in jail along with her. Again, learn how to use the "drug peddling" dumb brainwashed Indian masses. PV please post this... don't let idiots mouth off stupid stuff and not have others respond to them.

Yes you are. Your silence for him is. Your blind support of your “friend” is. If we all could stand for what is right then this case would have been solved my Mumbai police quickly. It would have never had to go to cbi. Find your humanity before it’s too late.

This man clearly never learned what to choose between a ‘friend’ vs truth and righteousness, much less how to choose friends. I am assuming Rhea didn’t entice him and manipulate him the way she did with Sushant to leech on to him for his money.

Fair enough but answer this: does it appear normal to you to take over the finances, bank accounts, social and career decisions of a partner , someone you just met? Cutting him off his family and friends? Is it normal to take videos of him in his vulnerable state? For what purpose? Spending his money irresponsibly? There are countless witnesses saying the above and evidence of the same.

that is why she wanted the "investigation" to be done by mumbai police. if at all there was an "investigation" ever

U haven't seen the videos she made of him - pretty clear he is not behaving normal - no matter she drugged him or he was bipolar. Who does such a thing? Either you hang in your boots coz it is too much for you or u b his support and try to find him help. What you DONT do is to take his videos w'out his permission, ridiculing him.in public domain for all to see. No hearsay

I want Justice for Sushant and Disha but I don't want another outsider Rhea being troubled for something she has not done and doesn't knows about only to give TRPs to Arnab and political mileage to BJP. Kangana is right Rhea is just an scapegoat while Mafias are roaming free. If Rhea really had big connections with Mafias then she may have got so many films by now but the fact that so many people heard her name for the first time now shows she was just an struggling outsider giving favours to casting couch vultures like Mahesh bhatt. As for drugs all the khan's, Kumar, Roshan, Deepika, Katrina, Priyanka takes drugs. Arrest them too. Law should be equal.

Is Rhea a royal princess? Is she giving u some money for supporting her? I don't know why u r even supporting her? She is just a hard-core criminal who just luks a bit better than regular criminals. If u look down upon regular criminals why not her? What has she done so extravagant to even be given all this importance? A criminal is a criminal irrespective of money caste gender etc.
