Shweta pens note on Sushant, takes dig at Rhea
Shweta posted several old pictures of Sushant in which he played with children and posed with several fans. The last picture was a close-up solo one of Sushant as he smiled. She wrote, "Blaming the person who has passed on… who can't defend himself anymore. I wonder what answer will you give to your conscience!"
She also added, "My bhai (brother) had a pure heart and he is beating in hearts of millions. We don't feel the need to come out and say anything because people can feel the truth. Bhai was, Bhai is and will always be our pride! The kind of love he has stirred in every heart.. Will never die!! We will relentlessly fight for his justice." She also added the hashtags – ‘justice for Sushant’ and Sushant Singh Rajput.
What Rhea recently said about Sushant
During the interview with India Today, Rhea Chakraborty had said, "Unfortunately, even today if some man is successful and he gets married and his success ratio drops they will say dekho jab se ye zindagi mein aayi tab se ye iska career kharab ho gaya hai (his career was affected from the time she came in his life). It's almost like the man had no identity before the woman. Men in India most definitely do not listen to their wives or girlfriends and if they did it would’ve been a much better society... He (Sushant singh Rajput) had his own identity. He came from a small town that made it big in Bollywood which isn’t a mind that can't be controlled. There is no black magic in this world, let me clear that.
Rhea on Sushant's mental health
She also talked about how people fail to understand mental health of those who have fame and money. Rhea had added, "So when they have somebody who has fame and money, they go like 'he is depressed toh main kyu kar raha/rahi hu (what am I doing)?' that is what doesn’t sit well with people. Mental health is completely misunderstood or is slowly getting understood because of this it is very difficult for people to digest the fact that someone who is rich and famous could be mentally affected and depressed. See I could never know the truth of why he did what he did because I don’t live in his life, contrary to popular belief. But I do know the truth about him being mentally ill, about what he was going through. I am hoping to hear the truth and the agencies are doing their job and in the right time and right place they will give their verdict."
