The Mere Dad Ki Maruti actress added, "We've been very good friends for many years. I am fond of working towards our shared goals, like starting our new NGO, and travelling." Hindustan Times also quoted Rhea as saying, "If there is anything else between us or not, this isn't something that I want to disclose yet."
Rhea and Sushant frequently feature on the trends list for their rumoured relationship. However, on Sushant's birthday last week, Rhea posted a set of pictures with the Chhichhore actor on Instagram. "Happy Birthday to the most beautiful super massive black hole that is known to mankind. Shine on you crazy diamond," she wrote.
