It all began when Ankita slammed Rhea Chakraborty for allegedly allowing Sushant Singh Rajput to consume drugs when she very well knew about his mental state.
Shibani, in response to Ankita's letter, wrote that "she obviously wants her two seconds of fame and has got it by targeting Rhea and playing a major role in this witch-hunt."
Shibani wrote, “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!” Shibani had retweeted another Twitter user, who had called Ankita ‘another princess of patriarchy’, following the Manikarnika actor’s explainer.
In her reply, Ankita wrote, “To conclude, I have been an ACTOR in Television & Bollywood for the past 17 years & now, when I am trying to support justice for my late friend, a view has been expressed that I am seeking JUSTICE because I need 2 seconds of fame and cheap publicity! I cannot fathom as to why any person would take such a stand. Is it because I have worked mostly on television and not in Bollywood? Is that why you would take a stand for the person with whom you have had a relationship for almost a decade?”
“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. I am proud to be a television actor. And if not for anything, I shall always raise my voice for the people I love and care about. #proudtobeatelevisionactor #WarriorsRoar4SSR #justiceforsushant.”
Rashami and Hina came forward in defence of Ankita, saying that she doesn't need two seconds of fame as she already is "a star".
Hina tweeted, "A person who’s made it in two credible mediums all by herself, a girl who rose from a scratch to become a TV Star and then shone brighter in films... Absolutely doesn’t need ‘2 second fame’ @anky1912 here’s some love for your grit and journey. Respect should be equal in all quarters Period!
