After actress Taapsee Pannu, Hina Khan and Ram Gopal Varma voiced their support for Rhea Chakraborty, Vidya Balan has also come out with a statement against the vilification of Chakraborty in the media.

The actress retweeted Lakshmi Manchu’s tweet, which slammed the ‘media trials’ against Chakraborty in regards to the ongoing investigation into the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

“God bless you @LakshmiManchu for saying this out loud. It is so unfortunate that the tragic and untimely death of a beloved young star Sushant Singh, Rajput has become a media circus. In the same breath, as a woman, my heart breaks at the vilification of Rhea Chakraborty. Isn’t it supposed to be ‘Innocent Until Proven Guilty’, or is it now ‘Guilty Until Proven Innocent’!? Let’s show some respect for the constitutional rights of a citizen and let the law take its course,” Balan wrote.

In an interview with Rajdeep Sardesai, Chakraborty was asked why Bollywood is not coming out in her support and the actress had urged her colleagues to speak up so that a fair trial can be ensured.
