Following Sushant's death, Rhea was at the receving end of people's anger on social media, who held her responsible for the reported depression that the late actor was going through for the past several months before he decided to end his life.
On June 18, Mumbai Police questioned Rhea and recorded her statement in connection with the death case. She was reportedly grilled for almost nine hours by the cops.
On Tuesday, the actress shared a heartfelt post on one month death anniversary of Sushant. In her Instagram post, Rhea said that she was struggling to face her emotions and there is an "irreparable numbness" in her heart even after 30 days of Sushant's passing away.
