Use for Sushant’s name for Fame

Social media users have been criticizing Ankita Lokhande for allegedly using the late actor’s name to gain sympathy.  Earlier, Ankita’s mother-in-law accused the actress of using Sushant’s name to gain sympathy for herself from the audience. “Ankita has been naming Sushant. It looks like she is trying to gain sympathy for herself. Sushant is anyway gone,” Vicky Jain’s mother revealed, Saas Bahu Aur Saajish.

Ankita’s Mother came in support

Ankita’s mother, Vandana Lokhande, also defended her daughter on the same matter. She defined Sushant’s and Ankita’s bond as special. According to her, they were very close. They were together for 8 years and remained friends after that too. After living such a long journey with her ex-boyfriend, Sushant’s passing broke Ankita.

Ankita and Sushant

For the untold, Ankita Lokhande and Sushant Singh Rajput together made their acting debut with the Zee TV serial ‘Pavitra Rishta’, and soon they fell in love with each other on the sets of the same show. They began dating in 2010. The couple dated for seven years before they broke up in 2016. Sushant was found dead in his Mumbai apartment in June 2020.

Ankita is often seen reminiscing about Sushant on Bigg Boss 17. In one of the previous episodes of Big Boss 17, the actress recalled Sushant’s death and told Munawar, “When I saw him, I felt everything was over. There were so many films he watched, and everything was over. There was this one picture of him, which was very bad.”
