Sushant Singh Rajput’s co-star actor Ankita Lokhande in super hit TV serial Pavitra Rishta is shattered by his untimely death. They were in a relationship for six years. Actor Prarthana Behere, who also worked in Pavitra Rishta, spoke about how Ankita has taken the news while speaking to ETimes TV, Hindi, and Marathi.
Ankita was closely connected with Sushant and his family. Though their relationship was broken on the bad terms later they shared cordial relations. It is definitely a heartbreaking sight. They were good friends of each other and together have shared several good and bad times.
“I can tell this about Ankita, she is devastated and crying like hell, but one needs to understand everyone has moved on in their life. News sunne ke baad woh wahin atki paddi hai but she has someone in her life now and she has to respect that relationship also. She wanted to go, but everyone knows she is very emotional and sensitive. She is crying and how. When I posted on the Pavitra Rishta group let’s go and see Sushant for the last time, then we got to know that only 20 people can attend the funeral,” Times of India quoted Prarthana.
Prarthana also commented on how social media was flooded with the posts that Ankita did not attend his funeral and how their mutual friend and Pavitra Rishta actor Mahesh Shetty did not pick up Sushant’s calls. She said, “Nowadays, you don’t know what you will be judged on. People are passing judgment on Mahesh Shetty that it all happened because he did not pick up his phone. People are talking so much about Ankita. They don’t even know Mahesh Shetty was the only friend who has stayed in touch with him in all these years. They are blaming him.”
Prarthana feels that people must understand that now Ankita has someone else in her life and she has to respect that relationship too. After breaking up with Sushant in 2016, She has been in a relationship with Vicky Jain. According to the reports, it was difficult for her to get over her relationship with Sushant.
On the other hand, Sushant was close with the actor Rhea Chakraborty. His last rites were conducted at the Pawan Hans crematorium in Mumbai on Monday. Sushant’s funeral witnessed the presence of some of his co-stars like Shraddha Kapoor, Kriti Sanon, and Varun Sharma. Actor Vivek Oberoi and director Abhishek Kapoor were also present.
