Bollywood actor Kubbra Sait, who garnered lots of praise for her fantastic portrayal of a transgender woman Kukoo in Netflix’s original Sacred Games, and was seen in films like Jawaani Janeman, Gully Boy and Sultan, is not one to mince words.
From supporting #SuspendTeamKangana, sharing her opinion on media reportage of Sushant Singh Rajput case to recently calling out women’s rights activist Madhu Purnima Kishwar for posting derogatory remarks against Rhea Chakraborty, on Twitter, Kubbra has voiced her opinion whenever deemed fit.
Soon after Kubbra came out in support of Rhea through her tweets, we at DNA caught up with the actor and spoke to her about her stance on the alleged ‘media trial’ in Sushant Singh Rajput death case.
Recently, In a chat with DNA India, Kubbra said, “ I am not forming an opinion, rather asking, how much do these unfortunate deaths (WHO estimates that each year around 1 million people die from suicide, which represents 1 death every 40 seconds globally) get attention from the media as a Sushant Singh case gets? I am not looking at this case in the perspective of my colleague losing his life, which is of course grieving, but at the same time a Marathi television actor and another TV actor passes away and nobody spoke about that, why?
Questioning the role of media in the case, Kubbra pointed out that it is nothing but witch-hunting (against Rhea Chakraborty).
Raising a question, Kubra asked, “what will happen if Rhea is proven innocent?” “What happens tomorrow if she has no link in this case?”
Talking about the leaked WhatsApp messages between Mahesh Bhatt and Rhea Chakraborty, the Sacred Games actor said, “How can saying ‘I love you’ to somebody become a crime. How can it become part of media trial?” She added that relationships have evolved over the years and that in today’s times we don’t just say ‘I love you’ to someone we are in love or in a relationship with.
Adding that the CBI must be left to do its task of fairly probing the case and revealing the truth of the matter, Kubra told DNA, “Let them work it out. Let them get back to you.”
Diverging from the Sushant Singh Rajput case and speaking about her bitter exchange with actress Kangana Ranaut on Twitter, Kubbra said, “It is Kangana’s troll army that has been harassing me and not she.”
