Ankita Lokhande has impressed fans with her time in the Bigg Boss house. The actress has made a slew of revelations about her relationship and bond with ex-boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput on Bigg Boss 17. She once again turned emotional as she remembered SSR.
During her conversation with Munawar Faruqui, Mrs Lokhande revealed why she decided to skip the late actor’s funeral despite Vicky Jain encouraging her to. Ankita also shared that she knows what went ‘wrong’ with the Kedarnath actor as he passed away at a tender age
Ankita told Munawar to stop after he recited lines from a shayari on heartbroken people.
She told him, “Mat bol yeh saari cheezein, woh hit karti hain buri tareeke se (Don’t say all these things, they hit me badly). But I like what you said,” and sang Kaun Tujhe Yun Pyaar Karega from Sushant’s film MS Dhoni: The Untold Story.

The stand up comedian shared with the Pavitra Rishta that he attended a special screening of MS Dhoni at Yash Raj Studios, where he met Sushant for the first and last time.
Ankita then said, “Bohot acha insaan tha woh. He was a good man. Main aise bolti hu na kabhi, tha, mujhe itna ajeeb lagta hai. Matlab abhi toh theek hai normal ho gaya hai, pehle bahut ajeeb lagta tha. Vicky ka bhi dost tha na Sushant toh ab woh nahi raha is duniya mein, that is the most worst feeling (Whenever I use the word ‘was’ for him, I feel so strange. I mean, now it’s okay, it’s normal, but it wasn’t earlier. Sushant was Vicky’s friend also and when I realise that he is no more, that is the most worst feeling).”
Munawar further asked Ankita if she was aware of what ‘went wrong’ with Sushant. She replied with a yes and said, “Main toh uske funeral pe bhi nahi gayi thi. Main jaa hi nahi paayi. Mujhe laga main nahi dekh sakti yeh. Vicky ne bola ki tu ja kar aa. Maine kaha nahi. Kaise dekh sakti hun. (I did not even go to the funeral. I couldn’t go. I thought I wouldn’t be able to see that. Vicky asked me to go, but I couldn’t muster up that courage).”
For the unversed, Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead at his apartment in Bandra, Mumbai, on June 14, 2020. Ankita dated the late actor for years before parting ways. Now, she is married to Vicky Jain.
