The actor was summoned by the CBI days after it took over the case on the Supreme Court’s direction. She has been accused by Sushant's family of mentally harassing him, siphoning off his funds, ultimately driving Sushant to suicide.

On Thursday, Rhea clarified in interviews to NDTV and India Today TV that she never took a single penny from Sushant. Rhea also spoke about their Europe trip, wherein Sushant had confided in her that he had gone through a phase of depression in 2013 and had even taken professional help for the same.

The CBI began its probe after a Supreme Court order last week. Its investigation is based on an FIR filed by Sushant’s family in Bihar, which names Rhea Chakraborty, her parents and brother Showik, among others.

Rhea Chakraborty's father and brother have recorded their statements, and Sushant Singh Rajput's flatmate, Siddharth Pithani, has also been questioned for seven days.
