Mumbai, Oct 6 | Filmmakers Anubhav Sinha and Hansal Mehta on Tuesday expressed concern for actress Rhea Chakraborty, who continues to be in judicial custody.

A Special Court in the city earlier in the day extended the judicial custody of Rhea and her brother Showik Chakraborty till October 20, in a drug-related case that came up as part of investigation into the death of Rhea’s boyfriend, late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

Anubhav Sinha tweeted: “That girl has been in Jail for a month. Seriously guys!!!”

Hansal Mehta wrote on the microblogging site: “Please remind me. What is @Tweet2Rhea in custody for exactly? And why is she still in custody?”

Reacting to Sinha’s tweet, screenwriter Kanika Dhillon wrote: “Yesss!!! Let that sink in… she has already been in jail for A MONTH!! RELEASE @Tweet2Rhea #rheachakroborty n all those who were baying for her blood.. reflect. Ponder. And at least NOW come forward n support her to be out of JAIL! #ReleaseRheaChakraborty.”

Reacting to Mehta’s tweet, filmmaker Onir wrote: “Why is @Tweet2Rhea still in custody ? Is it really essential for the investigation or just to satisfy a ranting 80k fake account … hate and rant factory ?”

On Monday, offering an explanation to netizens enquirng about Rhea, actor Gulshan Devaiah had tweeted from his unverified account: “Let’s take a moment here please. The CBI hasn’t arrested Rhea. It’s the NCB because drugs ka gochi hai. So it kind looks silly to demand her release on the basis of the AIIMS report because that has nothing to do with why she was arrested along with few others.”

Global Strategist and Philanthropist Drummi Bhatt returns to her homeland to bring about a vernacular infotainment content revolution

Drummi Bhatt has successfully donned many hats including that of a global strategy professional, mentor, and investor to early-stage startups encouraging women entrepreneurship, and a philanthropist.

Drummi currently leads Market Intelligence and Strategy team at Mitsubishi Power, USA building corporate-level strategies for global markets. Drummi is also the founder of KarmaKonnect, a Woman and Rural Empowerment Non-Profit Organisation which works for projects in remote rural, tribal, and conflict areas.

Her philanthropy work has taken her to various corners of India, including, far end corners of Leh, Ladakh, Telangana, and remote areas of Chambal. During these visits, she got mesmerized by culturally rich, vernacular, and diverse, the true “Bharat”.

During her interaction across the country, she got enchanted by the whirlwind of talent residing across Bharat, which is not restricted to a language, city, or just tier-1 cities but is found in abundance all across tier-2, tier-3 cities, and rural-tribal clusters.

With OTT platforms ruling the world in 2020, Drummi decided to bring her strategic insights and data analytics strength to this field by joining hands with seasoned entrepreneurs, Rahul Narvekar and Narendra Firodia, to launch its kind, vernacular OTT platform, Letsflix.

In 2019, Drummi, Rahul, and Narendra have successfully launched India’s first vernacular infotainment app, LetsUp, which now caters to 1.5 million users and in 7 vernacular languages, a feat achieved by none. The trio has now been passionately working towards creating and delivering vernacular content for every viewer in India with Letsflix.
