Last week, Lalit Modi, one of the wealthiest businessmen and the founder of IPL, broke the news of him dating Sushmita Sen as he shared pictures of them together on Instagram. Since his post, the internet has been divided into two. While some blessed the new couple, most of the internet shamed the former Miss Universe by calling her a “gold-digger”.
Many including author-activist Taslima Nasrin slammed Sushmita Sen for choosing to date Lalit Modi, an “unattractive man” only for his “money.” But what gives anyone the right to judge her for her personal life?
Slamming all these negative comments, recently, Sen has penned down a classy reply on Instagram. She wrote, “Perfectly centred in my being & my conscience…I love how nature merges all its 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. The so-called intellectuals with their idiosyncrasies…the ignorant with their cheap & at times funny gossip, the friend I never had & the acquaintances I’ve never met…all sharing their ground opinions & deep knowledge of my life & character…monetising the ‘God Digger’ all the way!!! Ah, these geniuses!!! I dig deeper than gold…I’ve always (famously) preferred diamonds!! And yes, I still buy them for myself.”
The actress further wrote, “I love the all-heart support my well-wishers & loved ones continue to extend. Please know, your Sush is absolutely fine… cause I’ve never lived on the transient borrowed light of approval & applause. I am the Sun… perfectly centred in my being & my conscience.”
What a comeback! Various B-Town celebrities including Priyanka Chopra, Ranveer Singh, Dia Mirza and many more supported Sen. Priyanka Chopra commented, “Tell em Queen!” with a fire emoji. Neha simply wrote, “Sush!🔥❤” Ranveer Singh also dropped heart emoticons in the comments section.
