Sushant Singh Rajput
's death row took a new turn when the actor's father filed an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty
in Bihar. In order to defend her, Rhea filed a petition in Supreme Court to transfer the case again to Mumbai Police. When asked about the Haunted director Vikram Bhatt about the whole case, he says it's not fair to blame Rhea when she's already grieving.
"I would like to say everyone is innocent until proven guilty, that is the law of every land, let’s not come to any conclusion about how Rhea might be involved in this, This is an accusation from a father who is much grieved. Whilst one can’t say that the father is wrong about whatever he is quoting, but there are always two sides to a story, " says Vikram.
He added, "For instance, money has been siphoned from the account. It’s possible that the money was spent somewhere. I am not certain that we should run to any conclusion until the law comes to an investigative conclusion. The police are working on it, soon people will find out what’s going on." On transferring the case, the 51-year old added, "If the case is in Bihar, she will have to go there all the time. She is not denying an investigation. She also must be grieving, first of all from a loss, then grieving from public perception. Now everybody also wants to blame it on her. Let’s look at things from her point of view also, because isn’t that fairness?"
Bhatt goes on to say, “She is, after all, a single girl, who is fighting this battle of perception. I have been around here enough to know how perceptions can be created. It can be a very dangerous thing, so I wouldn’t like to join the bandwagon that wants to be a part of a witch hunt."
