Ankita Lokhande and Sushant Singh Rajput were among the most loved pairs, on-screen as well as off-screen. It came as a major shock to fans when the couple parted ways due to an undisclosed reason. When Sushant passed away on June 14, 2020, Ankita was shattered. In the latest episode of Bigg Boss 17, the actress, once again, got emotional talking about him.
On Bigg Boss 17, Ankita was talking to Abhishek Kumar and said the way he dresses up reminds her of Sushant. She said, “When you roam around in pants and without shirt, you remind me of Sushant. His physique was like this.” Abhishek reacted, “Our journeys are also similar, the background.” Ankita said Sushant wasn`t aggressive. “He wasn`t very aggressive, he never got angry. Sushant was very calm. He did another level of hardwork. He was so dedicated and passionate. However, when you are so into details, a bit of ups and downs affect you,” Ankita shared.
She added, “I am very easy go lucky. Sushant would dive deep into anything. He would get affected by what people are talking about him on Twitter. He would think about people`s opinion a lot. It was very normal because he was from a small town.”
Ankita broke down while remembering Sushant. When Abhishek said, “I had thought that I would never talk to you about this,” she replied, “No that’s fine. I only feel proud talking about him. I feel good talking about him. He is family.”
When Abhishek asked whether Vicky supported her during the crisis period that broke on her following Sushant`s untimely demise, Ankita said, “Vicky was also Sushant’s friend. He has been very supportive in these matters. What can you do when there is nothing. Someone has died, what can you even do. You have to be supportive. There was no one to support. Vicky handled everything very nicely. Had he not been supportive, I wouldn’t have able to do anything.”
In one of the previous episodes of Bigg Boss 17, Ankita opened up about her breakup with Sushant. She shared, “No, there was no reason. I was blank. Ek raat mein cheezein palti meri life mein (Things changed in my life overnight).”
The actress continued, “Jab aap upar chad rahe hote ho na career mein, aapko 10 log aur kaan bharte hain. Jo bhi ho raha hoga, mujhe nahi pata us time. Theek hai, maine kabhi roka bhi nahi (When you are climbing the ladder of success, 10 people try to influence you. I don`t know what was happening that time. It`s okay. I never even tried to stop him).”
