In her interview to TV Today Network’s Rajdeep Sardesai, Chakraborty has claimed that co-accused Siddharth Pithani told her that Haryana Commissioner of Police and Rajput’s brother-in-law tried pressuring him into turning against her by giving false statement of Chakraborty siphoning off Rs 15 crore from Rajput’s bank account(s)

All along, it’s been Rhea Chakraborty at the receiving end of many a allegations. Sushant Singh Rajput’s father K.K. Singh has accused Chakraborty of fraud, abetting his son’s suspected suicide. After three months, Chakraborty has finally spoken and hit out at the late actor’s family.
Chakraborty has levied serious allegations against Haryana Commissioner of Police and Rajput’s brother-in-law OP Singh. Speaking to Rajdeep Sardesai of TV Today Network, Chakraborty has claimed that OP Singh tried to turn co-accused Siddharth Pithani against her, as revealed by Pithani to her.
“He (OP Singh) told Siddharth Pithani to speak against Rhea that she took Rs15 crore from Rajput,” claimed Chakraborty. “I asked him (Pithani) to speak the truth and stick to it. Pithani is a sweet, innocent boy from Hyderabad,” claimed Rhea.
In an earlier disclosure, Chakraborty admitted that that she never shared a good relationship with Rajput’s family. It must be recalled that in February, 2020, OP Singh had reportedly sent a Whats App message to the then DCP of Bandra police expressing the concerns of Rajput’s father and sisters over his well being.
“Why didn’t he file a FIR then? What he told [the then DCP, Bandra] inko bulake pito (call them and beat them),” alleged Chakraborty.
Chakraborty expressed surprise that despite the family having concerns over Rajput’s well being, Rajput’s sister and brother-in-law were all fine when they met him and her at a Bandra cafe in February, 2020. Chakraborty didn’t clarify which sister and the husband.
Reports of Rajput’s sister Priyanka Singh allegedly trying to molest Rhea at a social gathering were termed by Rajput family lawyer Vikas Singh as a ploy by the Jalebi  actor to divide the Rajput family. Chakraborty dropped a bombshell by claiming that after that episode Priyanka tried to file an FIR against her brother Sushant.
In another claim, Chakraborty told Sardesai that Rajput hadn’t spoken to his father for a period of five years as he was upset with KK. Singh for leaving his mother. This allegation has been denied by Vikas Singh, while Rajput’s brother-in-law Neeraj Kumar Singh Bablu has threatened legal action against Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut for making such claims.
Chakraborty also rebuked the allegation of isolating Rajput from his family. The Jalebi  actor claimed that it was Rajput who had asked her to leave the house. But she only agreed to so if his Goregaon-based sister Mitu came home.
“Sushant insisted that I should leave his home. I said one on one condition, Mitu ji (Rajput’s sister) should come. When she comes, then I’ll go at around 12 noon . Rajput told me she will take 1-2 hours and you will have to go. My relationship with the family was strained. The family never liked me. I never had strong feelings for them,” admitted Chakraborty .
The actress also rubbished theories of she living off Rajput’s money or owning any property which was financed by the late actor.
“I had bought a property in Khar (West) but that was before I met Sushant. It is a small 300 square feet property worth Rs72 lakh. I have taken a Rs50 lakh loan and I am paying a monthly EMI of Rs17k. Now I am worried as to how will I pay the EMIs. My life is being eroded by Sushant’s family,”moaned Rhea.
