Mumbai, September 6
Actress Rhea Chakraborty was mobbed by the media as she tried making her means into the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) workplace on Sunday, regardless of being escorted by police personnel. Several celebrities have referred to as out the media behaviour, terming it as barbaric.
Actor Richa Chadha was upset at how social distancing guidelines had been thrown out the window. “Social-distancing jaye bhaad mein (Let social distancing go to hell),” she wrote.
“Media vultures. The press is behaving barbaric. Is there no one in authority that can stop this,” Shibani Dandekar expressed her concern on Instagram Story.
Actress Gauahar Khan is disgusted. “I haven’t seen the worst of the criminals being treated like this even after being convicted! Let there be a trial!!! Absolutely disgusted with the way the media is treating her! #shame,” she tweeted.
Filmmaker Hansal Mehta slammed the media for breaking social distancing norms amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Mehta posted a information channel video of Rhea being hounded by scores of media personnel, and was caustic in summing it up with two phrases: “Social distancing.”
Actress Karishma Tanna took the identical line, too. “Wow. Social distancing at its best,” she wrote with sarcasm.
Producer Manish Mundra tweeted: “This is absurd! This should never happen to anyone! This should end now. What are we turning our nation into? This is not how civilized society functions. Let justice be done but then the road to justice shouldn’t look like this.”
Rhea is being questioned by NCB on Sunday over a drug angle within the dying of her boyfriend, actor Sushant Singh Rajput. A day in the past, Rhea’s brother Showik Chakraborty and Sushant’s home supervisor Samuel Miranda had been arrested by NCB and brought in custody by the bureau until September 9. IANS
