Shilpa Shetty and Rhea Chakraborty are two Bollywood actresses who in general do not have any connection. While Shilpa started her journey in cinema more than two decades ago, Rhea is still a newbie struggling to get a foothold in the industry. But even then today, many Shilpa fans are comparing her with Rhea Chakraborty and it is because of the circumstances the two B-town girls had to face during the recent past.
Shilpa Shetty had to take a break from work and as a judge on Super Dancer 4 when her husband Raj Kundra was arrested for producing and supporting pornographic content. While Shilpa’s involvement and connection with this content could not be established, she was exposed to malicious comments and trolls. But the Dhadkan actress seems to have emerged stronger from this phase and has shared a couple of meaningful and empowering posts on her social media.
Importantly, the actress not only returned to Dance Deewane 4 as the judge within a month of the scandal but also started responding to the paparazzi instead of shying away. Recently, she was spotted with her young daughter Samisha and even waived to the paps.
That is when many netizens compared her to Rhea Chakraborty who was trolled and slammed badly after the suspicious death of Sushant Singh Rajput last year. The Jalebi actress had to go through a very bad phase as her entire family including brother Showick was slammed badly in the SSR death and drug case. Even today, Rhea continues to fight the legal issues related to the case but has been sharing messages of positivity for the last few months.
While many social media users continue to troll Shilpa and Rhea badly even today, a few said that she is one of the strongest ladies from Bollywood like Rhea Chakraborty. Both of them have received flak for no fault of theirs. That is why their followers believe that Rhea and Shilpa are a symbol of women's empowerment after the way they stood for themselves despite being in crisis.
