Earlier, South actor Lakshmi Manchu spoke against the alleged ‘media trial’ of Rhea, she also shared a note on Twitter in demanding justice not just for Sushant but for Rhea as well. Reacting to Lakshmi’s post, Vidya Balan wrote, ” God bless you @LakshmiManchu for saying this out loud. It is so unfortunate that the tragic and untimely demise 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’!? Let’s show some respect for the constitutional rights of a citizen and let the law take its course,” added Vidya Balan.
