TV actress Ankita Lokhande has opened up about her break-up with late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Ankita dated Sushant for over six years.
The actress talks about how the separation affected her life and career after their split. Ankita and Sushant fell in love on the sets of a TV show, Pavitra Rishta.
Sushant passed away at his Mumbai residence on June 14. His death is currently being probed by the Central Bureau of Investigation
Talking to Bollywood Bubble, Ankita said: “Aaj log mujhko aakar bol rahe hai, ‘Tumne chhoda Sushant ko’ (Today, people are accusing me of having dumped Sushant). How do you know that? Nobody knows about my thing. Sushant… I am not blaming anyone here… I think he made his choice very clear. He wanted to go on with his career. He chose his career and he moved on. But for two-and-a-half years, I was dealing with so many things.”
Ankita said that she is not someone who can ‘easily move on’.
“For me, it was very difficult but my family stood by me. My life was finished. I was just finished. I did not know what to do after that. I am not blaming anyone. He chose his way,” she said, adding, “I gave him the full right, ‘Chal, yeh teri zindagi hai (it’s your life), you can go on.’ But then, I was battling with something very badly and my family stood by me. I came out very strongly,” she added.
Revealing that she was ‘completely lost after the break-up, Ankita said that she could not get out of bed or even talk to anyone, including her parents.
“Aapke dimaag mein cheezein aati hai uss time ki main kya karoon (You are plagued with negative thoughts). Maybe I wanted to finish myself. Woh thought process tab aapka hota hai (You do think of such things at that time) but then I came out of it,” she concluded.
Earlier this month, during an Instagram live, Ankita slammed Sushant’s fans who were trolling her and sending hate messages to her.
“Sabki apni-apni motives hoti hai life mein (Everyone has different motives in life). Sushant always wanted to grow in his life and that is what he did. Woh chala gaya apne raaste. Uske liye main kahaan galat saabit hoti hoon? Mujhe kyun gaaliyaan di jaati hai? Maine kya galat kiya (He went his way. How am I to blame for that? Why am I being abused? What did I do wrong)? You don’t know what is my story, so stop blaming me. It is really hurtful,” she said in the video.
