In a scathing statement targeting the family of Sushant, Rhea's lawyer Satish Maneshinde termed it as a "travesty of justice". "Three Central agencies hounding a single woman, just because she was in love with a drug addict and was suffering from mental health issues for several years under the case of five leading psychiatrists in Mumbai, who ended up committing suicide due to consumption of illegally administered medicines and used drugs," Maneshinde said.

Soon after her arrest, Bollywood celebrities came forward in her support and started posting the quote from the actress' t-shirt which read, "Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, Let's smash the patriarchy, Me and You."

    Upcoming Bollywood actress Payal Ghosh, who says she worked out in the same gym with late actor Sushant Singh Rajput for almost four years, recalls the latter as a shy and lighthearted person. Payal also raises doubts over the theory that Sushant had committed suicide.

    "I have seen his prescription on TV, the kind of medicines he was having. These are basic medicines given for panic and anxiety attacks. A person having panic attacks goes through a fear of death. I can say this from personal experience because I have battled this condition. How can a person having fear of death commit suicide? His death is still a mystery to me," Payal told IANS.

    "I also find it difficult to believe that a person like him was battling depression in his last days. In fact, when I watched television flashing the news of his suicide, I could not believe it at first, thinking it was fake news," the actress added.
