Rhea Chakraborty recently opened up about her life after the untimely demise of her actor-boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput. Following Rajput's death, Chakraborty was subject to vicious media coverage and was accused of peddling drugs and money laundering, among other things.
In her recent interview with India Today, the actor shared that she misses Rajput and that "it's going to be very difficult to live the rest of her life without him".
Speaking about the backlash she received, Chakraborty told India Today, “I kind of like the name chudail. I think it's interesting. Back in the day, who was a witch? A witch was a woman who did not subscribe to the patriarchal society or had her own way or had her own opinion that was against the popular opinion of men and patriarchal societies back then. Maybe I am that person, Maybe I am a chudail. Maybe I know how to do black magic. Who knows?”
Chakraborty also opened up about how she tried to move in her life after Rajput's death and added, "Moving on is one thing that makes us human. It makes us survive, it helps us keep going no matter what happens in our lives, be it tragedy, pandemic, and in my case, jail. You want to move on. I am really looking forward to moving on. It has been hard to live a normal life again, like going for a walk, or a salon for a haircut or going for dinner with your parents. I was going through a person's loss in my life and there was so much media attention. I wasn't allowed time to grieve. All of that has come and those small victories are very exciting to me. I am grateful I am able to lead a normal life again now."
"I don't think that hole can ever be filled. I miss him and it's going to be very difficult to live the rest of my life without that friend, that partner, that companion. But, life has happened to both of us and one has to move on," Chakraborty further told India Today.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Chakraborty was last seen in the 2021 film Chehre, co-starring Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi. She is currently co-judging MTV Roadies Season 19.
