It seems someone finally stood up for Rhea Chakraborty from the film industry.

It has been rough days for the actor who has been charged for abettment to suicide by her late boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput's father, K K Singh, and has been facing a media trial since then.

After maintaining a silence, Rhea opened up to Rajdeep Sardesai in a television interview, and revealed that no one from the film industry has stood by her, including those who worked with her.

Rhea also spoke about the mental trauma she and her family have been facing ever since the investigation into Sushant's death by suicide began.

Actress Lakshmi Manchu lent her support to Rhea by tweeting: 'I have complete trust in the judiciary system and all the agencies that are involved in bringing justice to Sushant. 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 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,' Lakshmi stated.

Lakshmi also changed her Twitter profile picture to Rhea's to stress her support.


Taapsee Pannu shared Lakshmi's post and added, '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 the judiciary to convict someone who isn't proven guilty.'

'Trust the law of the land for your sanity and the deceased's sanctity.'
