Sushant Singh Rajput’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty might be facing serious charges in the suicide case concerning the late actor but at one point in time, it was all rosy in their world. It was in May 2019 that rumours of Sushant and Rhea being in a relationship with each other started doing the rounds on the internet. While the couple remained pursed about their romantic equation, their many public outings suggested otherwise.
In June last year, the couple had gone to Ladakh for a romantic getaway. Even though they did not post any pictures together, their individual Instagram posts gave it away. In July last year, Sushant had gone all out to make Rhea’s birthday special, complete with a birthday cake, fireworks and closest friends. Rumour mills were abuzz that the actor had bought Rhea an expensive platinum pendant on the special occasion.

बाज़ीचा-ए-अत्फ़ाल है दुनिया, मेरे आगे होता है शब-ओ-रोज़ तमाशा, मेरे आगे मत पूछ कि क्या हाल है मेरा तेरे पीछे तू देख कि क्या रंग है तेरा, मेरे आगे नफ़रत का गुमाँ गुज़रे है, मैं रश्क से गुज़रा क्योंकर कहूँ, लो नाम न उनका मेरे आगे ईमाँ मुझे रोके है, जो खींचे है मुझे कुफ़्र काबा मेरे पीछे है, कलीसा मेरे आगे आशिक़ हूँ, पे माशूक़-फ़रेबी है मेरा काम मजनूं को बुरा कहती है लैला, मेरे आगे हमपेशा-ओ-हमशरब-ओ-हमराज़ है मेरा 'ग़ालिब' को बुरा क्यों, कहो अच्छा, मेरे आगे
In August last year, there were rumours that Sushant was ready to take his relationship with Rhea to the next level and get married to her. There was no official confirmation, however. In January this year, Rhea almost made the relationship official by posting lovey-dovey photos of them on Instagram on the actor’s 34th birthday.
Neither Rhea nor Sushant put out any relationship-related posts in the subsequent months until Sushant’s tragic death on June 14. As per the latest developments in the case, things had gone sour between the two. If Sushant’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti is to be believed, the couple had a heated argument on June 8 this year, just six days before the Dil Bechara actor took the extreme step.
In the FIR filed by Sushant’s father KK Singh, it has been alleged that Rhea transferred Rs 15 crore from Sushant’s bank account to the accounts that had no link with the late actor. It has also been said that Sushant was made to believe that he was mentally unstable by Rhea and her family.
