08 Oct 2020: Rhea conducted yoga classes for fellow prison inmates, reveals lawyer
He said the 28-year-old "fought the conditions" in jail, bravely.
Rhea, who had been in judicial custody for nearly a month in a drugs case, on Wednesday walked out of the prison on bail.
Here are more details on this.
Details: Rhea 'fought the conditions like a battle'
Maneshinde told NDTV that he had personally gone to prison to check Rhea's condition, and found the actor in "good spirits."
"She looked after herself in the jail," the lawyer stated.
"She used to conduct yoga classes for herself and her jail inmates," he said, adding that the actor lived like a commoner.
"Being an army girl, she fought the conditions like a battle."
Details: Rhea was arrested last month in a drugs probe
Her brother Showik was also arrested. He continues to remain in prison.
Statement: Sushant's family was after Rhea, lawyer said
Maneshinde, who called Rhea a "Bengali tigress" in the interview, opined she was "hounded," because Sushant's family was "very vindictive" toward her.
"The reason that she was hounded, was just because the family was after her. I don't know for what reason, the family seems to be very vindictive as far as Rhea Chakraborty is concerned," he told the news channel.
Fact: He also called out media for targeting Rhea
Maneshinde also hinted at taking legal action against media houses for tarnishing the image of Rhea. "Media channels, particularly those which were hounding her, were doing it only for the rating points. They were formatting all this fake news and bogus stories."
Bail: Rhea was granted bail by the Bombay High Court
The court noted that Rhea, "is not a part of a chain of drug dealers," brushing away NCB's allegations against her.
She was asked to furnish a bail bond of Rs. 1 lakh and report to Mumbai Police for the next 10 days.
