Manchu Lakshmi

Popular Telugu actress Manchu Lakshmi has strongly condemned the alleged ‘media trial’ of Rhea Chakraborty who was accused of abetment to suicide in the Sushant Singh Rajput’s case. While the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has been questioning Rhea and others in connection with the death of the Bollywood actor, the actress girlfriend already became the target of a vicious hate online campaign led by social media trolls and some media personalities.

Responding on the same, Manchu Lakshmi shared a note on her Twitter handle in which she said that until the judiciary system declares its verdict, we should restrain ourselves from being evil, cruel and lynching of person and her entire family without knowing the facts. The note read “I see so many people so silent because the media has made a monster out of a girl. I don’t know the truth and I want to know the truth and I hope the truth will come out in the most honest way. I have complete trust in the judiciary system and all the agencies that are involved in bringing justice to Sushant.”

The TV host-cum-actress added “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 me 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.”

Lending her support to Lakshmi’s post, Taapsee Pannu mentioned that it is wrong to overtake judiciary to convict someone who isn’t proven guilty. The 33-year-old actress wrote “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 judiciary to convict someone who isn’t proven guilty. Trust the law of the land for your sanity and the deceased’s sanctity.”

During her recent interview with a TV Channel, Rhea Chakraborty talked about the mental harassment she and her family have been facing ever since the enquiry took off in Sushanth Singh Rajput’s death case.
