Rhea Chakraborty has been seen in the news time and again due to the allegations that were being imposed on her regarding the late actor, Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise. While it was later proven that she had no role in the same and that Sushant Singh Rajput had committed suicide, today it becomes important for us to look back at what the actress had gone through when the entire nation was against her and the grace with which she had dealt with it all. Innocent or not, the role of the media is to help the truth reach the citizens. However, in this case, there were several media trials held with the agenda of character assassination of the actress. Her pictures in bikinis, WhatsApp messages, phone number, address, and many more private things were shamelessly circulated in the media. As a response to all this, not once did this young actress break down. She voiced herself against the wrongs, she even spoke about the harassment that her father, an army officer had to face, but the actress did not lose her calm and that is something that really stood out in the entire case.

Several actors wore the same t-shirt in solidarity with Rhea, echoing similar sentiments. While Rhea Chakroborty was facing the heat of the system, with just one t-shirt stunt, she made everyone else aware of the loopholes in the same.
