Rhea Chakraborty shared two photos to mark late actor and friend Sushant Singh Rajput’s birthday on Saturday. Sushant would have turned 37 this year. The actor was found dead at his Bandra home in Mumbai on June 14, 2020. Rhea was charged with complicity in suicide by Sushant’s family and served 28 days in jail before being released on bail. Her friends claimed she was falsely framed in the case. Read also: Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister Priyanka Singh has fond memories of him from her wedding day
Sharing two candid photos with Sushant Singh Rajput on Instagram, Rhea wrote: “(infinity sign) +1. “The first photo showed the two candidly posing behind two cups.” The second was a happy selfie of them together.
Rhea’s friends Shibani Dandekar and Krishna Shroff left heart emojis in the comment section of the post. Many also wished the actor on his birthday, while many continued to blame Rhea for his death.
Sushant was found dead just days after Rhea moved out of their Bandra house where they lived together. She and her younger brother Showik Chakraborty were arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau as his death sparked an investigation into a Bollywood drug affair. She was released on bail after 28 days, claiming innocence.
Rhea was last seen in Rummy Jafry’s 2021 film Chehre which was shot in 2019-2020. The film also starred actors Emran Hashmi, Amitabh Bachchan, Siddhanth Kapoor, Raghubir Yadav and Annu Kapoor. Almost a year ago, Rhea had shared a video from a radio station and wrote on Instagram: “Yesterday I went to work after 2 years. A big thank you to all the people who stood by me in my most difficult times. No matter what, the sun always shines. Never give up.”
Rhea is currently rumored to be in a relationship with Bunty Sajdeh, who owns a talent management agency in India. He is the brother of reality star Seema Sajdeh. A source told Hindustan Times in December last year: “It is so good to see them together and happy. Whatever Rhea has been through in recent years, Bunty has been her shoulder and support system. He was there for her when things got dirty.”
