After Supreme Court ordered CBI probe into Sushant’s case today (August 19, 2020), Ekta disassociated herself from the Pavitra Rishta Fund. Sharing a note on Twitter, Ekta Kapoor wrote-

It has to be recalled that Ekta Kapoor had launched Sushant in her show Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil. The late actor then got a big break with Pavitra Rishta, in which he played the role of Manav Deshmukh. He was paired opposite Ankita Lokhande in the show and their Jodi was a big hit. They had also dated for a long time but moved on as things didn’t work out.
