Twinkle Khanna Calls Out Media Trial Of Rhea Chakraborty: ‘They Took A Young Woman And Cut Her In Half’
Sushant Singh Rajput’s father KK Singh filed an FIR in Patna, accusing Rhea Chakraborty of abetment of Sushant’s suicide. He also leveled other serious allegations against the actress. Rhea has been facing extreme hatred and online abuse in the days following Sushant’s demise, and many celebrities have now condemned the vilification of the actress, and have called out the media trial faced by Rhea. Now, Twinkle Khanna has also written about the same, while drawing an analogy between Rhea Chakraborty’s media trial and a magician’s act.

Twinkle Khanna, in her column for Times Of India, described a magical act in five parts, comparing and drawing references to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case and Rhea’s media trial, without taking any of their names throughout the article. She describes Sorcar’s sawing trick, and mentioned how Indian illusionists give it their own desi twist. Firstly, she described the ‘production’ of a ‘corpse that appears on your television screens;’ followed by vanishing of ‘facts which can be made to fade away when they don’t suit our anchors’.

Third comes the ‘Metamorphosis’, in which Twinkle draws references by stating, ‘a suicide turns into a murder, and a girlfriend into a gold-digger.’ She then mentions ‘transposition’, wherein she states that other important matters are replaced by ‘a drug cartel hinging on 59 grams of cannabis.’


Lastly, she describes the process of ‘levitation’, and Twinkle Khanna writes, “this is aimed at making an entire political party rise in the eyes of its prospective voters, timed as it is with Bihar elections just around the corner.”

Twinkle Khanna then wrote that they took a young woman and cut her in half. “They sliced through her T-shirt, one that stated ‘Roses are red, violets are blue, let’s smash the patriarchy, me and you’, the blade going into her flesh, her very life draining away before a live audience of millions,” she wrote.

Meanwhile, after Rhea Chakraborty’s arrest, several celebrities such as Vidya Balan, Sonam Kapoor, Shibani Dandekar, Anurag Kashyap and many others came out in support of Rhea and demanded #JusticeforRhea.
