Sushmita Sen has been trending on social media for the last several days after former Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Lalit Modi made his relationship with the former Miss Universe public on social media.
Ever since the news broke, Sen was trolled by a section of netizens who questioned her relationship with Lalit Modi.
The trolls had also termed Sen a “gold digger” linking her relationship with the “wealth” of the first IPL chairman. Responding to the trolls, Sen shared a long post on her Instagram profile with much sarcasm.
She wrote, “The so called intellectuals with their idiosyncrasies….the ignorant with their cheap & at times funny gossip The friends I never had & the acquaintances I’ve never met….all sharing their grand opinions & deep knowledge of my life & character…monetising the ‘Gold Digger’ all the way!!! Ah these geniuses!!!
“I dig deeper than Gold…and I’ve always (famously) preferred Diamonds!!And yes I still buy them myself!!!”
On Thursday, Lalit Modi took the internet by storm, sharing a few vacation pictures with Sushmita Sen calling her his “better-half”.
Ah Serenity & the power of noise cancellation!!!😍😁❤️🎶
