New Delhi| Jagran Entertainment Desk: Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty who was granted bail a few months ago by Bombay High Court in a drug case was recently spotted at Anushka Dandekar's birthday. At the party, she was joined by birthday girl's sister Shibani Dandekar, BF Farhan Akhtar and Roadies fame Rajiv Lakshman.

Later, Rajiv took to his Instagram handle to share pictures with Rhea and captioned it as "My Girl". However, it seems like this caption didn't go down well with the netizens and they bombarded his comment section with nasty comments.

After facing backlash on social media, Rajiv has now deleted the post and has issued a clarification over "My Girl". Calling Rhea Chakraborty his 'dear friend', Rajiv's statement read, "I seem to have created unnecessary trouble with my irresponsible choice of words on a post. Rhea is a dear old friend, and I'm happy to meet her again, & I wish her well."

Meanwhile, Rhea and her brother Showik Chakraborty were granted bail by Bombay High Court after NCB (Narcotics Control Bureau) arrested them in September. The Sister-brother duo was arrested on charges of 'possession, purchase and use' of drugs, which the agency investigated as a link to actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death. Rhea was released on 4th October after spending a month in jail.
