"I saw the black dress video. I was doing a stand-up comic act. I like to do stand up comedy sometimes. Tai is one of the characters I play," she clarified, according to a report in reports zoomtventertainment.com.
It is not known when the video was shot, and in what context she was speaking.
However, all through Friday, the video left Sushant fans fuming.

Sushant and Rhea were reportedly in a relationship before the actor's alleged suicide on June 14. Sushant's father filed an FIR in Patna accusing six people, including Rhea, for abetment to suicide. The charges the late actor's family has levelled against Rhea include taking money from his son and threatening to disclose his medical reports with the media. Sushant's family has also accused Rhea of keeping him away from his family.
