Rhea Chakraborty, who made headlines in 2020 in connection to the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, has opened up about life after she was arrested and later granted bail by the Bombay High Court. The actress, who was accused of supplying drugs to Sushant, recently spoke about how a lot of people pitied on her after the controversy subsided.

People’s perception of Rhea

Speaking with India Today, Rhea said that she can see people looking at her with pitiful eyes when she enters a room. However, she confessed that it does not affect her negatively. “When I have conversations with people, I can hear the thoughts in their minds. Sometimes they look at me and think she doesn’t seem like a criminal. I can feel that thought at the same time. Does it matter to me? Absolutely not,” she elaborated.

Rhea on closure after Sushant’s death

When asked if she has gotten closure three years after Sushant’s death, Rhea responded that nobody can get closure from something like that. The actress acknowledged that this experience will always be a part of her, as it has changed her perspective on life. “The thing is I faced a personal loss. There can never be closure on that. It engulfs your life at the start then your life starts growing around it. But it will always exist. It will always be in your back pocket. It will always be rear from the back of your mind and say that I am here. Don’t think I am gone. So, I don’t think I will get closure in that sense. But has it changed my perspective, yes,” she added.

Sushant was found dead in 2020 in his Mumbai apartment. His girlfriend at the time, Rhea, was later charged under Section 27 (A) of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, which pertains to “financing and harbouring illegal drug trafficking”. She was later granted bail by the Bombay High Court.
