Things took a drastic turn in Rhea Chakraborty‘s life when her boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide on June 14 last year. While leading agencies like Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Directorate of Enforcement (ED) and Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) are still investigating the cause of Sushant’s death, Rhea faced flak from the late actor’s fans and family.

Sushant’s family accused Rhea of abetment of suicide and money laundering. The ‘Jalebi’ actress was even arrested by the NCB in the drugs case linked to Sushant’s death. Rhea’s ‘Chehre’ director Rumi Jaffery recently opened up about how she is coping with everything.

Rumi Jaffery’s ‘Chehre’ starring Emraan Hashmi, Amitabh Bachchan, Rhea Chakraborty is scheduled to release this year. The director is hopeful that Rhea will bounce back soon.

Speaking about Rhea, he told Mid-Day, “I am confident she will get through this phase. Everybody around will advise you to be brave, but only the one going through [the ordeal] knows how difficult it is. Time is the best healer; with time, she will be fine. She is a talented artiste and will be ready to bounce back.”

Rumi went on to add that Rhea deserves a fair trial. “People drew their own conclusions on the matter. Ideally, we should wait for the judiciary [to give its verdict]. Every coin has two sides, but Rhea should also get a fair trial. I have the highest regard for those who supported her then.”

While the filmmaker is looking forward to ‘Chehre’s theatrical release, the makers are yet to finalise its release date.
