Rajiv Lakshman of Roadies fame sparked a controversy on Friday when he posted a happy picture with Rhea Chakraborty. In the picture, Rajiv is seen hugging Rhea and sharing a laugh together. However, it was his caption, “My Girl” that led to a wave of nasty comments. The picture is from a birthday party, hosted by Anusha Dandekar. Rhea was joined by Farhan Akhtar, his girlfriend Shibani Dandekar and Rajiv Lakshman at the party. This was, in fact, the first social event which Rhea had attended after she was out of the jail.
Realising the damage he had done via his social media post, Rajiv not only deleted the post, but even turned off his comments and released an apology. He shared a statement on Instagram that read, “I seem to have created unnecessary trouble with my irresponsible choice of words on a post. Rhea is a dear old friend, and I’m happy to meet her again and I wish her well.”
