Bollywood actress, Mallika Sherawat's recently released web series, Nakaab, is streaming on MX Player, which also features stars like Gautam Rode, Esha Gupta, and Ankitaa Chakraborty. The series is in the headlines and gaining a lot of attention after Mallika addressed Sushant Singh Rajput's death case and stated that some of the events shown in her series, Nakaab are similar to the things that had happened in the late actor's case.
Although Mallika Sherawat avoided taking names, her statement appeared to be sided with the late actor, Sushant Singh Rajput's girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty, as she questioned people's judgement for blaming Rhea in the case. For the unversed, in the afternoon of June 14, 2020, it was reported that Sushant Singh Rajput took his own life by hanging himself to the ceiling of his Mumbai residence.
In an interview with SpotboyE, Mallika Sherawat revealed that her recently released web series, Nakaab, has a storyline similar to the events that took place with Chehre actress, Rhea Chakraborty after her boyfriend, Sushant Singh Rajput's death. In her strong statement, Mallika stated that after Sushant's demise, many people had started blaming Rhea for his death in a highly misogynistic manner. She said, "Last year there was a death of an actor, and people in a very misogynistic way started blaming his girlfriend."
Going further in her statement, Mallika Sherawat also shared the reason why people had treated Sushant Singh Rajput's girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty, as the prime reason behind his death is nothing but a perception of society towards women. The actress explained, "Again it comes down to perception towards women, how we treat women. There was no proof that the poor girlfriend was involved, they started blaming her, manipulating her. The role social media is playing in all this thing."
When Mallika Sherawat was enquired whether her web series, Nakaab, is inspired by Sushant Singh Rajput's death and the harsh treatment his girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty had received from a section of the society. Answering this, Mallika clearly stated that she doesn't want to react to this at the moment but also assured everyone that some of the bits and pieces of her show, Nakaab are quite similar to Sushant's case. She explained, "I don't want to take any names, but I would definitely say there are lot of similar things. This is all-inclusive in our show Nakaab"
Mallika Sherawat will be seen next in the movies, Police Tiger, Zeenat, Contract, and Pambattam.
