Ekta Kapoor released a statement after the hashtag “#ShameOnEktaKapoor” trended on Twitter
OTT platform ZEE5 started a mental health awareness fund named ‘Pavitra Rishta Fund’ – Pavitra Rishta, produced by Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms, aired on Zee TV between 2009-2014 starred actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Ekta Kapoor announced that she would have nothing to do with the Pavitra Rishta Fund.
She captioned the post, “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 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 of Sushant’s unfortunate death. I withdraw myself from this fun individually as of now, as it seems there’s more to this tragic incident. Like the rest of the country, I would like the truth to come out.”
