Post Sushant Singh Rajput’s shocking death, certain media has copped criticism for resorting to sensational blind items that often comment on an actor’s personal life. Kriti Sanon was among those artistes who had called for a ban on ‘blind items’ that tarnish the reputation of an artiste but also give them great stress. Noted journalist Rajeev Masand was interrogated by the Mumbai police over an alleged blind item aimed at Sushant Singh Rajput. Well, truth or not, but these sensational stories don’t fall from the sky. Well, there is someone who passes such stories to their chosen journalists.
Rhea Chakraborty, who is accused of abetting Sushant Singh Rajput’s suspected suicide, has hit out at noted PR professional Rohini Iyer of allegedly spreading fake news against Sushant. In 2018, sexual harassment allegation was levied against Rajput and his Dil Bechara  director Mukesh Chhabra. While the accusations were made anonymously, but there was another story wherein it was rumoured that Rajput allegedly misbehaved with his Dil Bechara co-actor Sanjana Sanghi.
Now in an exclusive interview to Rajdeep Sardesai of TV Today Network, Chakraborty has pointed fingers at Rohini Iyer and even questioned Sanjana Sanghi,]. Iyer, who runs the PR company Raindrop Media, once had Rajput as his client.
Upon been asked who were the villains in Sushant Singh Rajput’s life, Chakraborty said, “Maybe people like Rohini Iyer, Sanjana Sanghi. They were perhaps behind these blind items. Sushant was very disturbed, upset when this #MeToo allegations was reported. He had asked her [Sanghi] to clarify the truth but this girl took about a month to deny them”.
Chakraborty claimed that this fake news, #MeToo allegation was perhaps a major cause of Rajput’s depression.
While promoting Dil Bechara, Sanjana Sanghi had spoken about her disappointment over the fake #Metoo allegations against Rajput. She had earlier rubbished them in a tweet in 2018.
“On returning from a long trip to the US yesterday, I read several baseless and unfounded stories with respect to misconduct and misbehaviour on the sets of our film Kizie Aur Manny [later changed to Dil Bechara]. I’d like to clarify tat no such incident took place with me. Let’s put an end to these conjectures,” Sanghi had tweeted on 23 October, 2018.
