Actress Riya Chakraborty has been in the news ever since the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Both Sushant and Riya were often seen together. Then whether it is a party, outside the gym or in a restaurant. Both of them never said anything openly about their relationship. But a month after Sushant’s death, Riya Chakraborty broke her silence and told on social media page that she was Sushant’s girlfriend. Riya had also told in a statement to the police that she was Sushant’s girlfriend.
But now Sushant Singh Rajput’s father has lodged an FIR against him in Patna Police. According to the Patna Police, KK Singh has spoken out against Riya Chakraborty in the FIR for raising money and committing suicide. However, a few days ago, Riya Chakraborty herself tweeted to Home Minister Amit Shah and demanded a CBI inquiry into the matter.
Riya Chakraborty was born on 1 July 1992 in Bengaluru (Karnataka) to a Bengali family. Riya did her early studies at Army School, Ambala. Riya Chakraborty started her career in 2009 with the small screen MTV reality show Teen Deeva. She was not the winner of the show, but definitely finished second.
