Radhika Madan has joined the bandwagon of celebrities supporting Rhea Chakraborty. The Pataakha actress took to Instagram to share a widely circulating post about why supporting Rhea Chakraborty doesn't indicate disrespecting late actor Sushant Singh Rajput. She wrote that Sushant inspired her to make her transition from television to the big screen. However, she added that Rhea's arrest doesn't prove that justice has been served to Sushant.

Sharing the post, Radhika Madan wrote, "Sushant was the one who I looked up to while I was transitioning from Television to Movies. He was the one who inspired me to take that step and it breaks my heart when I think of him. Of course I want justice for him but it also breaks my heart to see another person being treated so inhumanely when she has not even been convicted yet (sic)."

Addressing people who are considering that the arrest of Rhea Chakrabaorty has served justice to Sushant, Radhika wrote, "For all those people celebrating that justice has been served to Sushant by Rhea's arrest..let me tell you that she has NOT been arrested for the charges imposed on her by the Media or by Sushant's lawyer. The justice is YET to be served and I hope it is served with all fairness (sic)."

The viral post shared by Radhika Madan reasons out why speaking up for Rhea Chakraborty is not disrespecting Sushant Singh Rajput. It reads, "When we speak up for Rhea, We're not disrespecting SSR. We're not undermining SSR's right to get justice. We're not asking to stop the investigation about Rhea's involvement. We're only upholding the fact that like everyone else she deserves a shot at fair trial." The post also shows news reports on Rhea that led people to create offensive songs on her. The media persons mobbing her during investigation and political parties using her as a pawn for their own agenda also features in the post.

Rhea Chakraborty has been receiving immense support from her industry colleagues. Many Bollywood actors, including Vidya Balan, Sonam Kapoor, Anurag Kashyap, Taapsee Pannu, Farhan Akhtar, Shibani Dandekar and Rahika Apte, among others took to social media to support the Jalebi actress.

Rhea Chakraborty was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Tuesday (September 8) for allegedly arranging drugs for Sushant Singh Rajput. The actor was found hanging at his Mumbai home on June 14. If found guilty, Rhea will face up to ten years in jail. Along with Rhea, her brother, Showik Chakraborty, Sushant's house manager, Samuel Miranda, and staff, Dipesh Sawant, have also been arrested by the NCB.
