Actress Taapsee Pannu and south actor Lakshmi Manchu lashed out on Twitter on Sunday, demanded restrain from the media in the coverage of Sushant Singh Rajput case. While Manchu in a note put out on Twitter demanded justice for Sushant, she reacted sharply at the media’s reportage of prime accused in the case Rhea Chakraborty and called it ‘lynching’.
Taapsee on the other hand asked the media to ‘trust the law of the land’ and said that it wrong for anyone to ‘overtake judiciary to convict someone who isn’t proven guilty’.
In a note posted on Twitter, manchu worte, “I see so many people so silent because the media has made a monster out of a girl. I don’t know the truth and I want to know the truth and I hope the truth will come out in the most honest way. I have complete trust in the judiciary system and all the agencies that are involved in bringing justice to Sushant.”
he continued, “But until then can we restrain ourselves from being evil and cruel and lynching of person and her entire family without knowing the facts. I can only imagine the pain the entire family is going through with these so-called media trials. If something like this happened to me I would want my colleagues to stand up for me at least the ones that know me to say back off hang on leave her alone and I ask all of you to do the same back off hang on leave her alone until the entire truth is officially released.”
“I am pained by what we have become. How are we being authentic if we don’t speak our heart when we have a voice to lend. I’m standing up for my colleague,” Manchu added.
Reacting to this, Taapsee, who will next be seen in Rashmi Rocket, wrote, “I didn’t know Sushant on a personal level nor do I know Rhea but what I know is, it only takes to be a human to understand how wrong it is to overtake judiciary to convict someone who isn’t proven guilty. Trust the law of the land for your sanity and the deceased’s sanctity.”
Earlier, in an exclusive interview to DNA, actor Kubbra Sait had also come out in support of Rhea.
Questioning the role of media in the case, Kubbra pointed out that it is nothing but witch-hunting (against Rhea Chakraborty). Raising a question, Kubra asked, “what will happen if Rhea is proven innocent?” “What happens tomorrow if she has no link in this case?”
Adding that the CBI must be left to do its task of fairly probing the case and revealing the truth of the matter, Kubra told DNA, “Let them work it out. Let them get back to you.”
Meanwhile, Bollywood actor Rhea Chakraborty was questioned by the CBI`s Special Investigation Team for eight hours on Sunday, on issues including the medical treatment and medicines administered to Sushant Singh Rajput and mention of drugs in her chats, and is likely to be questioned again as her answers were “not satisfactory”.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) team has been questioning Rhea daily since the last three days.
