Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case has been in the limelight from the last 2 months as the fans are not going to relax without knowing the truth as to what made Sushant take his life. Post the late actor’s death, many heated debates took place on social media related to nepotism, mental health, groups in the industry and what not.
Now, after Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise, Ekta Kapoor joined hands with Zee India CEO, Tarun Katial to launch the Pavitra Rishta Fund to spread mental health awareness. As it was expected to get a good response from the fans, it turned out to be the exact opposite. Fans started trolling and hating Ekta Kapoor for using the late actor’s name and face for the campaign.
After lots of hate and trolls, Ekta Kapoor withdrew her name from the campaign. She took it to her Instagram and announced it. She wrote, “While I support the cause of mental health, I disassociate myself from the ‘Pavitra Rishta fund’ till investigations are carried out and we have a clear picture on Sushant’s unfortunate death. I withdraw myself from this fund individually as of now, as it seems that there is more to this tragic incident. Like the rest of the country, I would like the truth to come out.”
She also captioned the post saying, “Even though this is not a fund started by me, but started by Zee and is a needed one at that, I am always with Zee for any other mental awareness fund that they want to do, but on this one I would like to respectfully dissociate myself. #SSR Hope the truth prevails”
Ekta respectfully dissociated herself from the campaign. Sushant Singh Rajput got famous from Ekta’s show Pavitra Rishta where Ankita Lokhande and Sushant met.
