Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death in 2020 shocked the nation and left a massive void in the lives of his loved ones. After his death, his family accused his partner Rhea Chakraborty of abetting his suicide. Chakraborty faced massive backlash and was called derogatory names by haters. The kind of Witch hunt carried out by the media against the Jalebi actress is known to all. Thus such questions were expected at the conference where she was present.
When asked about being called a “chudail” and accused of doing black magic on Sushant Singh Rajput at the India Today Conclave Mumbai 2023, actress Rhea Chakraborty responded by saying, “I kinda like the name ‘chudail.’ A ‘chudail’ was a woman who challenged the patriarchal society of her time. Maybe I am that person.”
Rhea Chakraborty also spoke about the patriarchal mindset in Indian society. She said that even today, if a successful man gets married and his success rate drops, people blame his wife instead of acknowledging that he may have simply had a bad year or made some poor decisions. She also said that Indian men generally do not listen to their wives or girlfriends, and that society would be much better if they did.
Chakraborty also said that the things that were said about her after Sushant’s death were examples of patriarchy in action. She emphasized that Sushant was his own person, that he came from a small town and made it big in Bollywood, and that he was not someone who could be controlled. She concluded by saying that there is no such thing as black magic.
