    Ekta Kapoor Distances Herself From Pavitra Rishta Fund After Facing Severe Backlash


    Ekta Kapoor has distanced herself from Pavitra Rishta Fund, set up with an aim to spread mental health awareness among people. Her decision comes after Sushant Singh Rajput’s brother-in-law Vishal Kirti gave out a strong message against using the late actor as a poster boy for mental health awareness. Ekta was being severely trolled for lending support to the fund; a gesture that many felt meant she was supporting the depression theory in Sushant’s death, which his family has rejected. Ekta has subsequently tweeted: “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.” Vishal issued a statement on social media where he mentioned that the late actor’s family has not endorsed any for-profit activity using Sushant’s name.
