Rhea Chakraborty is back on screen almost three years after Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. On Monday, the actress announced her comeback to showbiz. Now, Sushant's sister Priyanka Singh seemingly took a dig at the actress.
Rhea shared a video on social media where she can be seen giving a reference of the rough phase she went through after Sushant's death. She speaks to the camera and says, “Aapko kya laga, main waapis nahi aaungi, darr jaungi? Darrne ki baari kisi aur ki hai (What did you think, I won’t return? I’ll be scared? It’s time for someone else to be scared).”
Hours after Rhea Chakraborty's post, Sushant Singh Rajput's sister Priyanka Singh tweeted in Hindi, “Why would you be afraid? You were, are, and will remain a prostitute! The question is who are your consumers? Only a ruler can give this courage. WhoResponsible 4Delay InSSRCs is obvious.” (sic)”.
While Priyanka didn't name anyone in her post, the netizens were quick to point out that her tweet was "indirectly a dig" at the actress' comeback on Television. A user commented, "We know you are not saying the name but it's directed towards Rhea Chakraborty." Another user penned tagged the actress in the post and wrote, "This if for you."
Sushant rose to fame with the popular television serial, Pavitra Rishta. Later he had made his Bollywood debut with the film, Kai Po Che. However, it was on June 14, 2020, when he was found dead in his Mumbai apartment, and his death was reported as a suicide. In September 2020, Rhea was arrested by the NCB in a drug related case to the late actor's demise. After spending one month in Byculla Jail, Mumbai, the actress was released on bail in October, 2020.
