Ekta Kapoor had collaborated with Tarun Katial (CEO, Zee 5 India) for an initiative to spread mental health awareness a month after Sushant Singh Rajput's untimely demise. The initiative is named 'Pavitra Rishta Fund' as the late actor became a household name with the show 'Pavitra Rishta.' Yesterday, Sushant's fans took to social media to call out Ekta for using the late actor's name for a mental health awareness campaign. The TV Czarina received a lot of backlash from fans, as they lashed out at Ekta for supporting the depression theory in Sushant's demise. 

Now, today morning as the Supreme Court directed the CBI to probe Sushant's death case, Ekta took to her social media handle to announce that she has withdrawn from the 'Pavitra Rishta Fund' until the investigations are on. She said that while she supports the cause of mental health, but like others wants to know the truth behind Sushant's mysterious death and hoped that the truth would come out soon. In her statement, 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 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 most of this country, I would like the truth to come out,' she added. Ekta further clarified, that though the fund was not started by her but Zee, she is respectfully dissociating herself from this fund.

Why EKTA Kapoor doesn't choose Deepika for the poster?

Thank you Ekta. I hope Deepika can apologise as well. People were misled. There is nothing wrong in admiting mistake and assigning respect to a murdered, wronged person.

Atleast she can recognise and correct herself. That is human. The others are not even that competent.
