Taapsee Pannu takes jibe at Sushant’s family lawyer after Rhea’s arrest

Mumbai– Actress Taapsee Pannu has taken a sarcastic jibe at senior advocate Vikas Singh, who represents the family of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Her reaction came on the day Rhea Chakraborty, girlfriend of the late actor, was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau.

Taapsee reacted to a news piece on Twitter that says Sushant’s family lawyer Vikas Singh has refused to comment on Rhea’s arrest by the NCB saying, “Drug charges are not our case against Rhea.”

“So this isn’t his case he says. So she was neither a gold digger, nor murderer but she consumed/transferred drugs. Toh yeh case jiska bhi tha usko mubarak ho. Coz Sushant ko toh nahi but un logo ko pakka justice mil gaya hoga. Mubarak Ho (Congratulations to whoever had filed this case. Because not Sushant but those people have surely got justice. Congratulations),” Taapsee tweeted from her verified account on Tuesday evening.

On Sunday, Taapsee had reacted to a news video showing Rhea Chakraborty being mobbed by the paparazzi while arriving at the NCB office. Reacting to the video, Taapsee had tweeted: “In the name of Justice these people have lynched a human being off her right to live even before proven guilty. I sincerely pray Karma finds the address of each n every human being part of this lowest low of mankind we are witness to.”

Taking to Instagram, Yami posted a note on how long hair is associated with the notion of “conventional beauty” in the film industry.

“Hairstyle is not just a part of your vanity but is very instrumental in creating a distinct look for every character. But going this short with length, was a concern for people around, coz for some reason long hair are associated with the notion of ‘conventional beauty’ in the industry, society etc.

“I myself was so attached to the idea of being so ‘particular’ about my hair-length, that just an inch of extra hair-chop would make me go in a state of shock. That silly,” she wrote.

Along with it, she posted a throwback picture where she sports a short bob for the film “Uri: The Surgical Strike”.

“Throwback to day 1 of for the role of ‘Pallavi/Jasmine’ in ‘URI-the surgical strike’ ! I dint think twice when my director @adityadharfilmsproposed the idea of me getting a short-Bob done for the character and to avoid the use of wigs, in order to make the look authentic. It got me very excited & just went ahead.

” I remember that moment of feeling so light and uninhibited not just as a person- with breaking the stereotypes associated with physical attributes in this business and other’ perspective of YOU but also genuinely giving-in as an actor and create something new. A number of of our senior artistes, India & abroad have done the same seamlessly and I wish to be on that path, whenever I get an opportunity,” she added.
