Following actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death last year, his former girlfriend, actor Rhea Chakraborty had to face massive trolling on social media and by certain news channels. Many rumours were doing the rounds with some even claiming that she was a witch. However, a few months later, many from the film and media fraternity spoke up about the misogynistic treatment of Rhea Chakraborty and the witch-hunt that she had to face. Now, it appears that actor Mallika Sherawat is also siding with Rhea.
“Last year there was a death of an actor and people in a very misogynistic way started blaming his girlfriend. Again it comes down to perception towards women, how we treat women. There was no proof that the poor girlfriend was involved, they started blaming her, manipulating her. The role social media is playing in all this thing. This is all-inclusive in our show Nakaab,” she told SpotBoyE.
Mallika was also asked if the events that followed Sushant’s death inspired the story. “I don’t want to take any names, but I would definitely say there are lot of similar things,” she said.
