Late actor Sushant Singh Rajput's sister Shweta Kriti, Karanvir Bohra, Hina Khan and many other TV stars have backed his ex-girlfriend Ankita Lokhande and slammed Shibani Dandekar for her remark – '2 seconds of fame'.
Ankita Lokhande shared a lengthy note on her social media pages, clarifying the allegations made against her with regard to Sushant Singh Rajput's death. The actress said that she has never termed his death a murder or not. She wants justice for him and she believes in government. Meanwhile, she also defended Rhea Chakraborty arranging drug logistics for the late actor during his depression.
In a series of tweets, a journalist named Rohini Singh slammed Ankita Lokhande and other women from the TV industry for cheering on the vilification of Rhea Chakraborty. TV anchor Shibani Dandekar retweeted all of her tweets and slammed Ankita for never dealing with her relationship issues with Sushant Singh.
Responding to one of Rohini Singh's posts, Shibani Dandekar tweeted, "This woman clearly wants her 2 seconds of fame and has capitalised on Rhea being targeted because she has had never dealt with her own relationship issues with Sushant.. she has been the driving force behind this and she needs to be called out!"
This led to a different fight between celebs from TV and Bollywood. Ankita shared another open letter titled '2 seconds of fame', slamming both Shibani and Rohini. She said, "Stop looking down on we television actors, if that was your reason for describing my words as Grotesque. It takes an equal amount of hard work and dedication for the actors in the Television industry as it would take in Bollywood."
Several actors from the Television industry took to Twitter to extend their support to Ankita Lokhande and condemn Shibani Dandekar for her remark against the actress.
Here is how Ankita Lokhande's colleagues reacted to Shibani Dandekar:
