In Sushant Singh Rajput’s case, every day a new fact comes out and as the CBI team investigates Rhea Chakraborty, Bollywood celebs have been called out by netizens to stand up for Sushant. Amid this, recently, Rhea Chakraborty gave an interview where she put forth her side and many stars stood up for the actress and questioned the vilification by the media. Now, Vidya Balan also joined Lakshmi Manchu in raising her voice for Rhea and questioned her vilification by the media. 

Taking to Twitter, Vidya questioned how the media has turned the death of Sushant had been turned into a ‘circus’ by the media. Further, she even urged everyone to show some respect for the constitutional rights of a citizen as she backed Rhea. She mentioned that her heart breaks to see the ‘vilification of Rhea Chakraborty’ in her statement. Earlier, Taapsee Pannu, Swara Bhasker, Lakshmi Manchu raised their voice against certain media channels for ‘vilification’ of Rhea who is a named accused in Sushant’s case. 

Vidya’s statement read, “God Bless You @LakshmiManchu for saying it out loud. It is so unfortunate that the tragic death of a beloved young star Sushant Singh Rajput has become a media circus. In the same breath, as a woman, my heart breaks at the vilification of Rhea Chakraborty. Isn’t it supposed to be ‘innocent until proven guilty,’ or is it now ‘guilty until proven innocent’!? Lets show some respect for the constitutional rights of a citizen and let the law take its course.” 

Take a look at Vidya Balan's statement:

Vidya’s statement comes as a reply to Lakshi Manchu’s statement who had shared her thoughts after watching Rhea Chakraborty’s interview with a news channel. In her tweet, she had asked industry people to wake up and stop the lynching. Meanwhile, Rhea too recently filed a complaint against the Media. She shared a video of her father being mobbed below her building by the media personnel. Post that, Rhea was granted Mumbai police escort for every time she was called by the CBI for questioning. As we speak, Rhea’s parents are being questioned by the CBI in Sushant’s death case. Sushant was found dead on June 14, 2020.

First of all nobody likes the truth, yes Vidiya Balan spoke, coz the investigation is going on, but one thing I can’t get is why people have 2 faces, SSRAJPUT was killed by his friends and his own Bihari brothers, of coz there might be involved Rhea C, why give bad words to other actresses and actors, they were not even present when things were happening with SSRAJPUT, what happens is the Indian public goes in one direction without even thinking, coz these people should voice out to the people who killed SSRAJPUT, and not to the actors and actresses who did not even knw what was happening, and these people who r trolling others just coz they speak the truth needs to wake them up, sorry but I have to say these people who support the killers and gang on to the actors and actresses who were not involved it’s silly man grow up u lot and think really think what u all write on the comments shit man shit

You are an overrated actor. Never understood why you were praised for your acting which i think is very mediocre.. Maybe because people thought if someone looks fat and don't care to look beautiful are naturally talented. I always felt Deepika acts and looks way better than you. So don't come here and start saying something thinking people will buy it. Don't poke your long nose in everything.

This is not just about Sushant. Look how the system worked from day zero. Declared as suicide within 5min, no post-mortem done as legally it should be video recorded and that’s not done clearly, flat not sealed and evidences tampered, didn’t seal electronic evidences, didn’t even take statements from people present in flat on that day. This is where Tom, Dick, Harry, Cinderella, Snow White and many more live and it is only sensible to question

Rhea/ Mahesh Bhatt is the only one keep saying Sushant was depressed why don't you preach to Rhea Sushant is innocent before proven guilty. Why you are not supportive of Sushant..

I was in two minds about watching Vidya’s new Shakuntala movie on Hotstar. Vidya had a credible history in the murky Bollywood. Thanks to her pro-Rhea comments and stunning silence on Sushant case, will not watch her movie(s) anymore! She is married to a big producer honcho who has deep connections with the movie mafia. I guess she has sold her soul out too.

Yes, it is supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. But...in Rhea's case....so many disturbing things about her involvement in Sushant's mental decline have come to light that the masses cannot help but to view her with suspicion and disgust. Even if she is proven innocent, hopefully after this sordid ordeal Ms. Chakraborty will have learned some important life lessons about karma and how to treat others. Maybe she will become more God-fearing, which is far more important that becoming an actress. If you believe in God, you will have to face Him after you die and your salvation will not depend upon your fame or how successful your film career was or wasn't. If she is not convicted then she needs to leave India and find another home because people in India cannot stand her.

Now this expose - not by one individual or one channel or one group but by the collective whole - definitely seems to be an "Act of God".
