Ankita Lokhande crafted a note on Instagram explaining why she mentioned Rhea Chakraborty’s arrest as an act of ‘karma’. She also gave out a message for her haters, blaming Rhea to be the one at fault behind Sushant Singh Rajput’s alleged drug consumption, even when she was aware of his mental condition.
She began the note saying, “I again clarify, for the reason time and again being asked by the media to me on whether I feel it’s a murder or suicide? I have never said it’s a murder or anyone in particular is responsible. I always have encouraged justice for my late friend SSR and stood by the bereaved family and truth should be brought out by the investigating agencies. Being a Maharashtrian and an Indian citizen, I have total faith in the Maharashtra State Govt/Police & Central Government instrumentalities. Though when some lingos like “Sautan” and “widow” were used for me, which is in public knowledge. I never responded to it. I only came forward to narrate about SSR and his mental health till 2016.”
Here’s the post:
She even addressed her ‘haters’ as she further noted, “Dear Haters! Let us assume you must have known in and out about your friend and whats going on in her life and relationship. Glad to see you wake up finally, but I wish you would have woken up sooner and advised your friend not to support any kind of drug abuse by SSR if any.”
Without mentioning Rhea’s name, Ankita said, “When she very well knew about his mental state by publicly stating that he was in depression. Should she have allowed a depressed man to consume drugs? How is that going to help? His condition would deteriorate to a level that would make a man take the action that SSR has allegedly taken. She was the closest person to him at that time. On one hand, she says she was coordinating with all the doctors for his betterment of health on request of SSR, and on the other hand, she was coordinating drug logistics for him.”
Ankita went on justifying her post on ‘Karma’ after Rhea Chakraborty’s arrest and stated, “Would anyone, who claims to have loved someone so deeply, allow the other person to consume drugs claiming to know his mental state and condition? Would you do that? I don’t think anyone would. So how can it not be seen as an act of carelessness and irresponsibility? As per her, she informed his family about his ongoing treatment but did she ever inform them about his drug consumption? I am sure she didn’t because maybe she, herself, enjoyed consuming it. And this is why I feel it’s Karma/Fate.”
She concluded her outburst with a piece of advice for all the trolls, “Little advice for the unknown.’You guard your friend and I am standing by the family’. But let us maintain civility by not coming on to each other personally, either directly or indirectly.”
Ankita is in currently in a relationship with Vicky Jain, who also supported her in the comments section. He wrote, “You couldn’t be more pertinent. Respect.” Ankita replied to his comment with a heart and hands folded in prayer emoji.
