Rhea Chakraborty on her time in jail
Rhea in an event was asked about her time in jail. In a video, shared by her, the actor replied, “So, you are basically removed from society and put as a number in prison because you are deemed unfit for society. So there itself, this personality or these things you’ve created about yourself are completely broken.” Rhea also asserted that she was at an under-trial prison where everyone was innocent until proven guilty.
Talking about other women in the jail, she added, “Seeing and interacting with them, I experienced a unique kind of love and resilience within those women. They found happiness in small things. They grabbed happiness when they got it. They know how to enjoy a moment, and they are some of the happiest people I have met.” She also revealed how her fellow prison mates would find happiness in simple, small things, such as a samosa.

“It’s frustrating; they’re languishing, but they know when and how to catch that happiness. And it can be as small as a samosa on a Sunday. It can be as small as somebody dancing for them. So it’s just perspective; it’s how you look at it,” she also said. Rhea had previously revealed that she danced in the jail on the day her bail was granted.
Calling her jail term ‘worst hell’, Rhea wrapped up, “At that point, yes, my life was in the worst hell it could have been. But heaven or hell is a choice in your head that you can make. It’s difficult to choose heaven each time. But the battle is of the mind, and if you have the strength and desire in your heart, you’ll most definitely battle the mind and win.”
