Ankita Lokhande reveals Sushant used to be deeply affected by blind stories
After the demise of bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, many celebrities came up to voice their views on the incident. Some accused nepotism while some alleged Sushant was boycotted from the industry. Amidst all this, other news that surfaced was about the blind items written on Sushant.
In a talk show with Republic News Sushant’s ex-girlfriend, Ankita Lokhande, revealed that these kinds of stories used to deeply impact the Chhichhore actor.
When asked if the blind items, that referred him as ‘skirt chaser’, a ‘dud’ and even put a #Metoo allegation, affected him, Ankita replied, “Very badly. Sushant was very sensitive, he was very emotional about his career and everything. He used to be very concerned on what people were saying about our relationship, and what people would write would matter to him.”
The actor added, “A person from outside makes it big with his own effort, how will it not affect him? So many blinds used to be written on him, when I was there I used to handle him, used to tell him, ‘It’s okay, you don’t have to worry, can’t keep everyone happy.’”
Ankita also said, “But things kept growing, like I did not know these things were written for him, and it definitely affected him. If you say something big maybe (it won’t affect him), but these small things, that came on his image (affected him). Like myself, I made it on my own and if someone raises finger on that, how will it feel about it? If sir, someone says anything to you, you are at such a big level, how will you feel?”
On Nation Wants to Know, Ankita also claimed that Sushant was not someone who could be depressed. She admitted that she remembered Sushant getting distanced from his family, stating that someone knew the ‘truth’ about why he changed numbers and more.
