Sushant Singh Rajput’s death probe is getting murkier by the day. In this week itself the case has seen Sushant’s father KK Singh filing an FIR against the actor’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and now Ex girlfriend Ankita Lokhande has broken her silence. In an interview with Republic Tv, the Pavitra Rishta actress has claimed that Sushant could not have been ‘depressed’.
Ankita Lokhande Statement
“Sushant was not the guy who could commit suicide. We have seen worse situations when we were together. He was a happy-go-lucky guy,” she said. Ankita and Sushant were in a relationship for six years until 2016.
She continued, “How much ever I know him, he wasn’t a depressed guy. I have not seen a person like Sushant, a guy who used to write his own dreams, he had a diary… He had his 5-year plan — what he wants to do, how he will look, etc. And exactly after 5 years, he had fulfilled them. And when things like ‘depression’ are used after his name… it is heartbreaking. He might be upset, anxious, yes, but depression is a big word. Calling someone ‘bipolar’ is a big thing.”
She added, “The Sushant that I know — he came from a small town. He established himself on his own. He has taught me so many things, he taught me acting. Kisi ko pata bhi hai Sushant kaun aur kya tha (does anybody even know who the real Sushant was)? Everyone is writing their own portrayal of how ‘depressed’ he was, it hurts reading all of this.”
Ankita continued, “He found happiness in small things. He wanted to do farming, I know this for sure… he told me agar kuch nai hua to main apni short film bana lunga (if nothing else works out, I will make a short film). He was not a depressed guy, not at all. I don’t know what the situation was… but I will keep repeating this. I don’t want people to remember him as a depressed guy, he was a hero. He was an inspiration.”
The Manikarnika actress was questioned by the Bihar Police on Thursday at her Mumbai residence. The Mumbai Police has so far recorded 40 statements in the probe. While the celebrities and fans of Sushant Singh Rajput are demanding the case to be transferred to the CBI, the Supreme Court has rejected the suggestion. Sushant Singh’s father on Tuesday filed an FIR against the actor’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty in a string of 16 charges in his death probe.
Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide on 14th June, 2020 at his Bandra apartment. The actor was only 34.
