During his television work, it was no secret that Sushant Singh Rajput was dating his ‘Pavitra Rishta’ co-star, Ankita Lokhande. The couple dated for six years before ending their relationship in 2016.
Rajput’s loss has hit everyone hard, including Lokhande, who reportedly is “devastated” after hearing the news. The actress was seen visiting Rajput’s house to meet his family earlier today.
However, in an earlier interview with ETimes TV, Prarthana Behere, who also worked in ‘Pavitra Rishta’ said, “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.”
She also touched on stories that criticised Lokhande for not attending Rajput’s funeral and how their mutual friend, Mahesh Shetty, missed his call before his demise. She said, “Nowadays, you don’t know what you will be judged on. People are passing judgement 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.”
