Ever since the news of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death came to light on 14 June 2020, only one name has been heard everywhere and that is Rhea Chakraborty. Rhea’s personal and professional life has never been discussed as much as is happening before.
Rhea was Sushant’s live-in partner for the past one year. He is accused by Sushant’s family for abetting his son and cheating on him. The CBI is investigating the allegations but Rhea Chakraborty is the biggest target in Sushant’s suspicious death.
Rhea stepped into the glamor world through MTV’s reality show Teen Diva. She became the first runner up in it. He then auditioned to become a MTV video jockey in Delhi and was selected. She also hosted ‘MTV Vassup’, ‘College Beat’ and ‘MTV Gone in 60 Seconds’ while being a VJ. During this time, his dream of becoming an actor was awakened. She was studying engineering at that time but had no interest in becoming an engineer, she left engineering and turned to acting.
Rhea auditioned for Yash Raj Films’ 2010 band Band Baaja Baaraat but was rejected for the lead role. Anushka Sharma played the lead role in the film. She got her first break in 2012 through the Telugu film ‘Tunega Tunega’. In this film, he played the character of Nidhi. The film proved to be a flop but soon after that in 2013, Riya managed to get her Bollywood break. He got a chance to play the role of Jasleen in the film Mere Dad ki Maruti, but it was also a flop. Her third film Sonali Cable was also a superflop.
In 2017, she got a cameo in films like ‘Half Girlfriend’ and ‘Dobara: See Your Evil’, but these films also flopped. After this, Rhea was given a chance to play a full role as a heroine in 2017 Bank Chor and Jalebi in 2018, but she failed in that too and these films did not even ask for water at the box office. Rhea has not appeared in any film since then.
Rhea’s film career has not reached any milestone in 8 years. Rumi Jaffrey was planning to make a film about Rhea and Sushant, which was to start shooting in May this year, but could not happen due to the lockdown and the film would never be made again after Sushant left.
Looking at the ITR of the last two years of 28-year-old Rhea, her annual income is between 10-15 lakh rupees but she has two properties worth crores in Mumbai. How ED made this property Rhea is investigating the matter. Rhea is also accused of cheating Sushant for Rs 15 crore.
According to the trade analyst of Bollywood to know the fees per film of Rhea, he told that it would not be more than 25-30 lakh rupees. At the same time, according to Ed Gurus, Rhea gets only 3 lakh to 5 lakh rupees for brand endorsement.
