It was during the time of Sushant Singh Rajput shooting for Raabta, that the news of his break-up with long-time girlfriend, Anikita Lokhande came to the forefront. It was not only a shock for their fans but also a big heartbreaking moment, after all everyone was pretty sure that the two were meant to be forever!
Although, after that episode, both the actors didn’t recount or reveal any other news related to each other. However, Ankita Lokhande has finally opened up about her ex, Sushant Singh Rajput!
While talking to DNA, upon being asked about her work getting affected due to the break-up, Ankita Lokhande revealed, “Honestly, I have always been content. When I was working, I was satisfied; when I wasn’t, I was still happy. I’m okay with whatever I do. Aisa kabhi nahin tha ki mujhe yeh chahiye ya woh chahiye. I decided to take a break because I was happy with that then.”
“It was not just for myself. I guess, the Universe wanted me to get back professionally, which is why I’m here now. I won’t say the break-up affected my profession, though. Love and work are two separate things. You need to balance them and I’ll say I wasn’t able to do that.”
Furthermore, Ankita even revealed the things she learnt from her relationship and her break up.
She said: “I have learnt to love myself. I had forgotten to do that. Loving yourself helps because if you don’t respect your own feelings, how do you expect others to do that? Also, earlier, I didn’t know how to balance things. Today, I know how to do that. Mujhe pata hai kahaan kise importance deni hai. Lekin sabse zyada importance mujhe apne aap ko deni hai.”
Well, seems like Ankita Lokhande has moved on for the good!
