Recently Sushant Singh Rajput’s former manager Disha Salian was found dead. TV industry was already in shock about her loss, but this was beyond their ability.
Hiten Tejwani, Asha Negi, Rithvik Dhanjani, Ankita Lokhande, Bhanujeet Sudan who starred in Pavitra Rishta along with Sushant Singh Rajput did not tweet anything.
They went on to go ahead and accused people that they are making it ‘YOU’.
Stop making someone’s death about YOU!
About the last time you met them or spoke to them or studied with them. And it’s pretty vulgar to be tweeting photos with them especially in these circumstances.

Asha Negi retweeted.
While Ritvik, deeply saddened, was quite annoyed with social media posts.
How sick and pathetic are you at your true core if you’ve been sharing those images it’s a life we are mourning stop making it a social media circus.
Have some morals you peices of shit.
