On Tuesday many Bollywood celebrities took to their social media to post a quote on smashing the ‘patriarchy’ accompanied with a hashtag #JusticeForRhea. This comes after the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) arrested Rhea Chakraborty in a drug case linked to the tragic demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Demanding justice for Rhea and slamming the media trials against her, Bollywood personalities like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Vidya Balan, Anurag Kashyap, Huma Qureshi, Jim Sarbh among others shared a quote that was written on actress’ t-shirt that she had worn on Tuesday which was her third day of interrogation with NCB. The quote read, “Roses are red, violets are blue, Let’s smash the patriarchy me and you”.
Sonam Kapoor who also shared the quote, wrote in her caption, “Everyone loves a witch hunt as long as it’s someone else’s witch being hunted. Walter Kirn”.
The NCB had initiated its probe on the basis of WhatsApp chats retrieved from Rhea’s phone, which revealed conversations around the procurement of drugs.
Rhea’s brother Showik Chakraborty, Sushant’s home manager Samuel Miranda, his house helper Dipesh Sawant were taken into custody on September 5.
