Shibani Dandekar called out media personnel for misbehaving with Rhea Chakraborty, who is accused of abetment to suicide in the death of her late boyfriend, Sushant Singh Rajput.
Shibani posted a lengthy Instagram note in the support of Rhea, whom she has known for a long time.
“I have known Rhea Chakraborty since she was 16 years old. Vibrant, strong, vivacious, such a bright spark, so full of life! I have witnessed such a stark contrast to this side of her personality over the last few months as she and her family (some of the warmest best people you will ever meet) have experienced the most unimaginable trauma. We have watched the media behave like complete vultures on a witch-hunt, vilifying and torturing an innocent family to breaking point,” Shibani wrote.
She also shared the current situation has affected Rhea’s family a lot.
Her basic human right taken away as the media play judge jury and executioner! We have seen the death of journalism and a frightening side of humanity!
What was her crime? She loved a boy, looked after him through his darkest days, put her life on hold to be there for him, and when he took his own life she was crucified.
“What have we become? I have seen her first hand what this has done to her mother’s health, how it has affected her father who gave his life to serving this country for 20 years, how quickly her brother has had to grow up and how strong he has had to be,” Shibani added.
