I, Dr Arun Shukla, would like to give a standing ovation to Miss Rhea Chakraborty , for her real life oscar performance in front of the camera as the entire world watched.

I understand the masses smell the interview as well phrased and enacted , probably it was under astute directions by maybe the most expensive lawyers of the country, Sir Satish Maneshinde ( dedicated to his profession of law - after all client seeks an advocate to be defended ), as he has to his records great victories of proving Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt innocent - Yet court decision is supreme and must be regarded as true justice delivered

Of course Anchor Rajdeep Sardesai from AAJ TAK must have researched well in his homework, yet could nail nothing as the nation was looking forward to a surgical strike , which failed miserably this time .

Isn’t journalism about decoding and promoting truth? Are we truly at ease after all the audio’s and videos revealing that Sushant was planning to move to Coorg , was being boycotted by the nepotistic gang members, , created company with Rhea and her brother Showik , their travel to Europe , numerous calls to the staff and servants by Rhea many times more than Rhea called Sushant , Disha’s suicide , the injuries on his neck with a swelling on face depicted as possible electric shock given to him before his death ,the hurried post Mortem at Cooper hospital, the revelation of Kangana Ranaut  etc

As a Psychologist, Counsellor, Social Awareness Promoter & Behaviourist , with 25+ years of experience, I understand that the curious mind of every citizen stands bewildered as they watch helplessly , as another scandal seems to get wrapped up by justice that would be accepted yet considered worrisome .

Rheas cool and articulated performance has left the well experienced news channels ‘ anchors clueless on how to extract inputs for the campaign.

We all wish to see more professional anchors delve deeper into if not every , some drops of truth to an utterly thirsty fans of law who campaign in hope - as destiny calls - the campaign for truth & justice - the campaign they hopefully named -#JusticeForSushantSinghRajput.

Probably, the spirit of probing journalism is missing , wish it would have been the sharp blade of journalist acumen that  Ms Kanthi D. Suresh would have unleashed as she has exhibited in her show "Talking Turkey with Kanthi"- to deep probe the many question marks , that the closest confidante of late Sushant Singh Rajput & the highly ambitious, yet surprisingly naive Miss Rhea Chakraborty has in store, in her skull that stands well groomed with an in vogue hair style.

There is no doubt that she is aware to just about everything, the threats , the possible murder , part of conspiracy & possibly being monitored by a remote control.

Kanthi my be  present Editor in chief of Prime sports, yet she has been an ex anchor of Doordarshan & the exemplary courage exhibited by her facilitated the phenomenal exposure of carpeted truth , time and time again on her sports channel . Its time for her to unleash her sharp cross examinations ,

Honourable writer Shobha de with all her years of wisdom has already observed and quoted - What a story! Rhea has shown the stuff she’s made of (reinforced steel)”. - “My jaw hit my knees as I watched how expertly Rhea negotiated her way through a dense thicket of questions & nonchalantly exonerated herself & her family members of any wrongdoing.”
