This is what Sushant Singh Rajput had to say on Ankita Lokhande losing out on ‘Happy new year’
“I have no regrets. I was just trying to build a man, and I did that,” says Ankita Lokhande.
The death of Sushant Singh Rajput shook the world, and now recently, Sushant’s ex girlfriend, Ankita Lokhande revealed how she dealt with his death and her spilt with the actor.
Ankita Lokhande and Sushant Singh Rajput were a couple for quite a while before they decided to part ways. Ankita talks about how she missed the opportunity to debut in Farah khan’s Happy New Year and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani because she had plans to settle down with Sushant and start a family.
She told Bollywood Bubble, “I gave up on many things. I gave up on Happy New Year. I remember Farah (Khan) ma’am had offered me this film. I had met Shah Rukh Khan sir also. He had assured me to give me the best debut. But back of the mind, I was in Macao, Sushant, Shah Rukh sir and I. I was like Bhagwan mera naa ho yaar because I was like literally. Ladki kaisi hoti hai naa, nahi yaar mere partner ka acha ho. I mean that’s what you think. Till today, I have no regrets, I have no regrets. I was just trying to build a man, and I did that. I was just trying to be very strong support of Sushant, and I did that.”
When asked about Ankita missing out on Happy New Year, Sushant Singh Rajput told Filmfare in 2014 , “The talks were on but many things couldn’t be worked out. Between Kai Po Che and today, I have been in talks for about 25 films, but things don’t always work out. It happens.”
Ankita Lokhande finally made her debut in 2019 with Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika.
