Rhea Chakraborty opens up on her jail stay

Rhea Chakraborty disclosed that she was transferred to solitary confinement for 14 days because of the COVID-19 threat. She was totally hungry and exhausted. When she was asked to have lunch, she readily agreed. Rhea shared that she was given a roti and capsicum and it was just capsicum in water.

The actress stated that the inmates were allowed to move out of the cells at 6 am and were brought back again at 5 pm. During that time, they were permitted to have meals, take shower, visit the library and carry out other chores.

Rhea Chakraborty revealed that Indian prisons still follow the British rule. As per the regulations, breakfast is served at 6 am, lunch at 11 am and dinner at 2 pm. She said that while most people save their dinner and have it at 7-8 pm, she changed her whole cycle because the food which was given to her was anyways not eatable. “Garam hoga toh fir bhi khaya jaayega. Thanda toh bilkul nahin khaya jaayega. Hence, I started waking up at 4 am and finishing my dinner at 2 pm,” mentioned the actress.

Talking about the washroom conditions, Rhea added that it was one of the hardest things during her time in jail. She quoted, “But mental trauma is so much harder that the physical trauma starts paling in front of it. You think ganda bathroom toh manage kar lungi.”

For the unversed, Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his Mumbai apartment in June 2020. He was in a relationship with Rhea Chakraborty at the time of his death and this led to to Rhea’s 28-day imprisonment.
