Ekta Kapoor was being trolled recently on Twitter and #ShameOnEktaKapoor started trending. Netizens were slamming Ekta for her support to Pavitra Rishta Fund in support of mental wellness. She was alleged for making it appear as if Sushant Singh Rajput (lead actor in her TV show Pavitra Rishta) before his death was facing mental problems. People claimed that while the case of his death is under investigation, she can’t do that.
Today, Ekta Kapoor has issued a statement in which she has disassociated herself from Pavitra Rishta fund. She has said that the reason for the same is the case being under investigation.
Her statement read as saying, “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.
– Ekta Kapoor “
Captioning the post on Instagram, she wrote that she didn’t start the fund and was disassociating herself from it. “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 disassociate myself.
#SSR Hope the truth prevails 🙏🏻” her caption read as saying.
