Innocent Or Framed? Who’s The Real Rhea Chakraborty, After All?

Even as the CBI, ED and the NCB carry out investigations into the suicide-or-murder theories in the high-profile case, here is how the 28-year-old actress is being portrayed on prime-time television even before the legal trial gets underway.
