Not one word in Rhea Chakraborty’s post on Sushant Singh Rajput on his death anniversary, rings untrue. This is a heartbroken woman who doubts she can ever be in love again.
Or as one of Sushant’s co-stars shared with me on Monday afternoon, “This a woman in love who shall remain in love even if the person she loves is gone. She can’t move on.”
I am told by Rhea’s very close friend (I haven’t spoken to Rhea ) that Rhea is filled with ineradicable guilt for not being there when Sushant ended his life. “She had to leave . He pushed her away . She had no choice but to go to her parents’ home for a few days. This is not the first time they fought, and she left. It had happened before. And they had made up after a few days every time. Sushant couldn’t do without Rhea. She was the only person he wanted to be with in his final years.”
Hence the programmed vilification campaign against Rhea last year was the worst disservice to Sushant’s memory. None of what happened to Rhea would have pleased Sushant. He would have been devastated at the way she was treated, all in the name of “Justice For Sushant”.
By naming her the culprit, one doesn’t know whose justice was served. Rhea is still healing from the stoning that she was subjected to last year. The best that those who claim to love Sushant can do for his memory is to apologize to Rhea for blaming her for Sushant’s suicide.
The truth is, a part of Rhea died with Sushant.
