A few days ago, Lalit Modi surprised everyone when he took to Instagram to post pictures of him and Sushmita Sen, confirming their relationship to the public. The photos quickly went viral on the internet, and evoked mixed responses from netizens. Many trolled both Lalit and Sushmita for various reasons. A few went on to describe Sushmita as a “gold digger”, and this was one among the numerous nicknames they came up with to judge the actress’ choice.
According to India Today, Sushmita's previous boyfriend Vikram Bhatt, who dated her in the late 90s, has come out in support of her. The filmmaker said, “Sushmita is the last person who checks out a person's bank balance before she decides to fall in love. I was penniless when we were dating. I was directing Ghulam, but I had no money.”
He went on to recount how Vikram and Sushmita went on a vacation to the United States when he didn't have any money and Sushmita financed for his trip. "When we reach Los Angeles and there was a limousine and I was surprised. She said that she wanted to make my entry in the US very special," he continued.
He went on to add that some people find entertainment by poking their nose unnecessarily in others’ personal lives. “Someone's tragedy is someone's entertainment; this has always been the case,” Vikram said. He also pointed out how netizens trolled Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan when they tied the knot. Vikram noted that people are really fascinated with celebrities' lives and decisions.
According to him, Sushmita has always lived life on her terms and added that the actress never dated anyone with the hope of making it big in the industry. .
Following the bullying on social media, Sushmita took to Instagram on Sunday to call out those who had insulted her. She posted a picture of herself posing for a photo in a swimsuit from Maldives where she is enjoying holidays. Her post read, “Perfectly centred in my being & my conscience…I love how nature merges all it’s creation to experience oneness…and just how divided we are, when we break that balance. It’s heartbreaking to see just how miserable & unhappy the world around us is becoming (sic).”
