Rhea Chakraborty gets philosophical, implores all to hold on to human values in order to survive “These dark times”

Recently, actor Rhea Chakraborty said that “we live in the Kalyug” and called for humanity to come together in peace, love and understanding. Rhea, who was in the headlines last year for dating late actor Sushant Singh Rajput at the time of his death, had a cataclysmic year, from media scrutiny to a harrowing investigation which ultimately resulted in her spending a month in jail.

In a new Instagram story, Rhea shared a note which said, “We live in the Kalyug, it’s the time when humanity will be challenged and human values will be given ample opportunity to collapse. We need to come together, find love and compassion in our hearts and hold on to those human values we were taught as children. It’s the only way to live through these dark times. So hold on tight to your families and loved ones… because love truly conquers all.”

As for upcoming projects, Rhea will soon be seen in Chehre starring Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi as the protagonists. Rhea was boycotted from the films last year after the death of her then-boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput. 

Sushant’s family accused her of misappropriation of his funds and abetting his suicide. Afterwards, Rhea Chakraborty denied all allegations and filed a countersuit against the family.

Rumy Jafry, director of Chehre, in a recent interview, said if the film had been released last year it would have been affected by the controversy. He further said that the public’s opinions about Rhea have changed in recent times: “Everyone knows what a furore the media caused with the whole Sushant Singh Rajput case and Rhea’s arrest. Last year, she was a witch, a golddigger and whatnot; this year she was declared the ‘most desirable woman.’ This shows there has been a change in the perception of people,” said Rumy to a news portal.
