After Rhea Chakraborty's arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau, her friends Shibani Dandekar and Anusha came out and spoke in her support. Among many, the sister duo demanded Rhea's release and used a hashtag #ReleasedRhea on their Instagram profiles. It was being reported that Shibani and Anusha had deleted their posts after receiving backlash, but the claims are untrue.

Shibani had shared the picture and had written, "#ReleaseRhea #justiceforrhea". While the post received a lot of support from the industry and Bollywood celebs like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Rakul Preet Singh, Shweta Bachchan, Neha Dhupia and others, it also received a lot of backlash for supporting Rhea.

Other than being his temporary girlfriend, she pukes on Twitter with some 200K+ BOT-sycophants. She tweets stupid stuff without using her brain just to get fame, she has also shown support to criminals."
