Chandigarh, January 1
Filmmaker Rumi Jaffery has revealed that actress Rhea Chakraborty will resume work soon. Jaffrey, who was a close friend of Sushant Singh Rajput and Rhea, said that Rhea is regaining her strength.
He revealed that he recently met the 28-year-old actress, and added that she “had become quiet and withdrawn”.
In an interview with SpotboyE, Rumi said: “It has been a traumatic year for her. Of course, the year was bad for everyone. But in her case, it was trauma on another level. Can you imagine any girl from a well-to-do middle-class family spending a month in jail? It has crushed her morale completely.”
Rumi said that Rhea would return to work early next year and revealed that he met her recently.
“She was withdrawn and quiet. Didn’t speak much. Can’t blame her after what she has gone through. Let the heat and dust settle down. I’m sure Rhea will have a lot to say,” he said.
Sushant died on June 14, and the case is being probed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).
Rhea, who was his girlfriend at the time of his death, was accused by his family of abetment of suicide and embezzlement of his funds, among other things.
She was arrested on a drug-related charge in the case and spent nearly a month in Byculla jail before being released on bail.
