Mahhi Vij pens open letter to shut trolls claiming she and Jay Bhanushali ‘abandoned’ their foster kids: ‘Not fair’


TV actors Mahhi Vij and Jay Bhanushali are sometimes trolled for ignoring their foster children, Khushi Ray and Rajveer Ray. People, on social media, criticise them for preferring their organic daughter Tara over their foster youngsters. But, on Friday, the TV couple launched an open letter clarifying why Khushi and Rajveer live in their hometown with their grandparents.

Explaining how Tara’s entry into their lives didn’t change their emotions for Khushi and Rajveer, the Balika Vadhu actor wrote, “A lot of you have been questioning, a lot of you have been assuming, a lot of you have been writing anything and everything and its just NOT FAIR! Yes we are parents, FOSTER Parents! Tara entered our lives as a beautiful blessing but that doesn’t change our feelings for Khushi and Rajveer.”

Mahhi stated although she and Jay are foster mother and father to Khushi and Rajveer, their organic mother and father have a primary proper on them. Also, it’s they who’ve determined that the children will “eventually return to their hometown and be with their extended family and grandparents.”

The actor added how all of the trolling ‘pains’ them and may “hurt” their youngsters in future. She wrote, “So today to all of you who may question why you aren’t seeing them with us or feel that we’ve abandoned them, please don’t! It pains us and it will hurt our children when they grow up. For us, all our three children are equally loved but two of them though living in their hometown are still precious for us. Our video calls and frequent exchange of messages keep us close to them and that’s a decision which none of us have a right to interfere in.”

Refuting the claims that they’ve ‘abandoned’ Khushi and Rajveer, Mahhi added, “The kids will keep coming and they have two homes for a lifetime, one in their hometown, and one with us. All our festivals like Diwali and even Khushi’s birthday are celebrated together. The love doesn’t change and will always only grow!”

Concluding her word, Mahhi ‘hopes’ all of the questions and assumptions are ‘rested’. “Please bless our children, wish them well because that’s all we want, positivity and Good Karma!” she concluded.

Mahhi and Jay had in 2017 adopted their home assist’s two youngsters. They had then introduced that they might be taking good care of the children’ schooling and upbringing.
