Lakshmi Manchu defends Rhea Chakraborty
South Indian actress Lakshmi Manchu condemned the media trials against Rhea Chakraborty and had expressed, “I see so many people so silent because the media has made a monster out of a girl. I don’t know the truth and I want to know the truth and I hope the truth will come out in the most honest way. I have complete trust in the judiciary system and all the agencies that are involved in bringing justice to Sushant. But until then can we restrain ourselves from being evil and cruel and lynching of person and her entire family without knowing the facts. I can only imagine the pain the entire family is going through with these so-called media trials. If something like this happened to me I would want my colleagues to stand up for me at least the ones that know me to say back off hang on leave her alone and I ask all of you to do the same backoff hang on leave her alone until the entire truth is officially released.”
As soon as actress Manchu Laxmi tweeted defending Rhea Chakraborty and how Indian media is making a monster out of her, actress Taapsee Pannu was quick to reply to her post. “I didn’t know Sushant on a personal level nor do I know Rhea but what I know is, it only takes to be a human to understand how wrong it is to overtake judiciary to convict someone who isn’t proven guilty. Trust the law of the land for your sanity and the deceased’s sanctity”.

Let’s show some respect for the constitutional rights of a citizen and let the law take its course.”
