After Sushmita Sen gave a befitting reply to trolls on social media for calling her ‘gold digger’, presently the actress’s brother Rajeev Sen stepped forward to defend her. Everything started after IPL founder and businessman Lalit Modi announced that he was dating Sushmita. Responding to ugly comments and memes, Rajeev said his sister is a ‘self-made woman.’
Speaking about Sushmita and Lalit being brutally trolled, Rajeev Sen told ETimes in a recent interaction, “A lot has been said about my sister negatively regarding her current pictures with Mr Modi. I can proudly say that my sister is a self-made woman. She knows her priorities, she is a responsible mother and a role model for many Indians. Nothing can take that away from her. Also, whatever my sister had to say, she has done that through her Instagram posts.”
After announcing her relationship online, Sushmita responded to the ‘gold digger’ tag first on Twitter. She shared news articles defending her and added a long Instagram post. “The friends I never had & the acquaintances I’ve never met….all sharing their grand opinions & deep knowledge of my life & character…monetising the ‘Gold Digger’ all the way!!! Ah these geniuses!!! I dig deeper than Gold…and I’ve always (famously) preferred Diamonds!! And yes I still buy them myself,” read an excerpt from her post.
