Sushmita Sen maintains silence but Rajeev reacts
While “get well soon” messages poured in for Lalit in the comments section of his posts, his alleged girlfriend, actress Sushmita Sen remained mum.
However, it was her brother Rajeev Sen’s comment that caught the netizens’ eyes.
“Wishing you a speedy recovery Lalit . Stay strong,” he commented.
Sushmita Sen and Lalit Modi relationship
In 2022, Modi took the nation by storm when he shared pictures from his vacation with Sushmita and announced that the two were dating.
Not just that, but he went on to state that they may get married soon as well.
While the couple was trolled brutally by the netizens, Modi gave befitting replies to them, defending his relationship with Sushmita. However, the actress refrained from commenting on Modi’s claims and instead, only slammed trolls for calling her a “gold digger”.
Months later, Modi removed Sushmita’s name from his bio and even completely stopped addressing questions about them. While rumours of their breakup began doing the rounds on the internet, the actress was spotted with her ex-boyfriend Rohman Shawl at several family and industry events.
