After Taapsee and Swara, Vidya Balan comes out in support of Sushant Singh's girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty.

She further expressed her concerns for Rhea, who is being blamed for the demise of the actor. 

The Shakuntala Devi actress also released a statement which read, "My heart breaks at the vilification of Rhea Chakraborty." "Isn't it suppose to be 'Innocent until proven guilty? God bless you Lakshmi Manchu for saying this out loud. It is so unfortunate that the tragic and untimely death of a beloved young star has become a media circus. In the same breath as a woman, my heart breaks at the vilification of Rhea Chakraborty. Isn't it suppose to be 'Innocent until proven guilty', or is it now 'Guilty until proven innocent'!? Let's show some respect for the constitutional rights of a citizen and let the law take its course."
