Read below for more details.
A Shattering Love Story
Chakraborty was apprehended in September last year following a drug-related investigation by the NCB and the death of her former boyfriend, actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Rajput was found dead on June 14, and the police at the time had concluded that his death was a suicide.
During an unexpected turn, the deceased’s family blamed Chakraborty for Rajput’s death sparking outrage on several social media platforms. Although she denied any wrongdoing, she was arrested and was only granted bail after a month in jail.
Series Of Unfortunate Events
Her brother, Showik, was also arrested concerning the same drug case but was not granted bail immediately after denying all the charges levied against him.
Chakraborty was trolled and bullied online and accused of pushing Rajput to suicide after she got him addicted to drugs. Although these claims have not been confirmed, fans were pretty convinced about it.
She also faced allegations of murder, and federal agencies investigated the case. The actress and her former boyfriend announced their relationship in the summer of 2019 and started cohabiting in December. However, she went to spend time with her parents a week before Rajput allegedly committed suicide.
She was recently spotted with her brother in Mumbai as they went house hunting.
They’re also making plans for an upcoming movie appearance in “Chehre” alongside Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi in the lead. The actress had auditioned for the film before her run-in with the law enforcement agencies turned in 2020, but now, she’s back.
Rajiv shared the photos from the birthday party on his Instagram and captioned the one of himself and Chakraborty, ‘My girl.’ The caption caused a stir on social media causing him to delete the post and issue a statement.
Setting Things Right
In the statement, Raghu Ram wrote,
“I seem to have created unnecessary trouble with my irresponsible choice of words on a post. Rhea is a dear old friend, and I’m happy to meet her again, and I wish her well.”
Ram also took to social media to celebrate his son’s first birthday, which was met with his fans’ warmth. In the post, he wrote,
“Your 1st birthday is a festival for your entire family, little one! This day will always be special to all of us because this is when we met you, my love! HappyBirthday!”
Ram exchanged vows with Natalie in December 2018, and they welcomed their first child on January 8, 2019.
