When Lalit Modi referred to Sushmita Sen as his “better looking partner” in July, the two shocked the internet. The businessman even added Sushmita to his Instagram bio, referring to her as his “girlfriend” and “partner in crime,” and their smiling selfie was used as his profile picture. Now Lalit Modi removed all references to Sushmita Sen from his Instagram bio and profile photo, though, which sparked rumours of a breakup. However, on social media, they still follow one another.
Previously annoying their relationship, Lalit Modi had shared pictures with the actress and penned, “Just back in london after a whirling global tour #maldives # sardinia with the families – not to mention my #better looking partner @sushmitasen47 – a new beginning a new life finally. Over the moon. In love does not mean marriage yet. But one that by God’s grace will happen. I just announced that we are together.”
Sushmita Sen was quickly the target of online trolls who called her a gold digger for dating a much older man. The actress has written a statement slamming all hate, “I dig deeper than Gold…and I’ve always (famously) preferred Diamonds!! And yes I still buy them myself!!! I love the all heart support my well-wishers & loved ones continue to extend. Please know, your Sush is ABSOLUTELY fine.. cause I’ve never lived on the transient borrowed light of approval & applause. I am the Sun….perfectly Centred in my being & my conscience!! I love you guys!!!”
