Be it the debate on nepotism, drug abuse, or media trial of Rhea Chakraborty, it is women, and not male actors, in Bollywood who are speaking up.
The HC said: “There has to be some restraint. Media gets to know info even before the officers themselves. Reputations are getting tarnished. Rhea Chakraborty named Rakul in her statement to the Narcotics Control Board regarding the SSR-drug case.
“My mother, 5 minutes before this video, was sitting with us. It was that kind of a family, happy, social gathering,” Johar had clarified last year.
Jaya Bachchan said, “Government must stand with the entertainment industry.”
Rhea Chakraborty has denied the charges, saying “she was “coerced” into making “self-incriminating confessions.”
Under the label of ‘raja beta’ we nurture entitled, irresponsible boys and men who will always find someone to blame.
“You have assassinated her character, egged an online mob on demonise her and her family, fuelled wrongful demands and called her arrest your victory.”
Most would agree that the days leading up to Chakraborty’s arrest witnessed some of the dirtiest, vilest, and most regressive moments of Indian broadcast journalism.
Should media be flouting all norms of social distancing for the sake of a soundbite? What happened on Kangana Ranaut’s flight from Chandigarh to Mumbai was appalling.
“There is something drastically wrong with the general outlook towards women. The expectations are unreal,” wrote Tahira Kashyap.
Rhea Chakraborty was arrested on Tuesday by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) and remanded to 14-day judicial custody.
Kangana Ranaut and Rhea Chakraborty are two women on opposite sides of the same story. But are they any different?
