Rhea Chakraborty (age 22, DOB –July 1, 1992) is one of the upcoming Bollywood actresses. She is known to don several hats, from being an MTV VJ to acting in Telugu and Bollywood films. Her first film was a Telugu movie called ‘Tuneega Tuneega’, a year after which she debuted in a Bollywood movie known as ‘Mere Dad Ki Maruti’. In 2014, she is doing the quirky protagonist’s role in the movie ‘Sonali Cable’. She has also signed the movie ‘Bank Chor’ which will release in 2015. Though the movie was supposed to have Kapil Sharma in the title role, it will now be played by Riteish Deshmukh.
Rhea says that Sonali Cable is a story of Sonali, the enterprising cable operator whose business is to provide broadband connectivity to Mumbai suburbs. Her growing company is stopped at its heels by Shining Inc, headed by Anupam Kher. It is a David vs Goliath story.
Rhea started her TV career in 2009 by taking part in the MTV reality show ‘TVS Scooty Teen Diva’. She ended up as the first runner-up. She auditioned for VJ for the same channel and got the position. She went on to do shows like TicTac College Beat, Pepsi MTV Wassup and Gone in 60 Seconds for MTV.

Rhea came into controversy when she accused an unnamed man of molesting her in her building’s elevator. She took to Twitter saying “I was groped by a very well dressed man who walks casually into my building at broad-day with 2 watchmen chilling in the building’. She later filed a complaint at the police station.
