Former beau of Sushant Singh Rajput and actor Ankita Lokhande on her social media on Wednesday, further clarified her stand on the circumstances that led to Sushant Singh Rajput’s tragic demise. Ankita and Sushant were in a relationship until 2016 and were reportedly planning to get hitched. She also added a separate note addressed to “haters”, where she spoke of allegations against Rhea Chakraborty but did not take her name directly.
Ankita started by addressing what she feels when she is quizzed by the media houses if the actor died by “murder or suicide” and clarified that she “never said it’s a murder or anyone in particular is responsible.” The actor stressed emphasized she is only looking out for Sushant’s family members and wants the truth to unfold. She added that she keeps full faith and trust in the state and central government agencies that are probing the matter.
Ankita Lokhande added that she refrained from responding to “lingos like ‘sautan’ and ‘widow’” and had only talked “about SSR and his mental health till 2016.”

The Pavitra Rishta actor further went on to give a clarification to “haters” and wrote that if people around Sushant Singh Rajput knew of “any kind of drug abuse by SSR if any” they should have “woken up sooner” and advised him on the repercussions of it. She then called out a certain ‘she’ and it looks like this was meant for Rhea Chakraborty. “When she very well knew about his mental state by publicly stating that he was in depression. Should she have allowed a depressed man to consume drugs? How is that going to help?”
Ankita Lokhande then wrote that his “condition would deteriorate to a level that would make a man take the action that SSR has allegedly taken.”
“On one hand, she says she was coordinating with all the doctors for his betterment of health on request of SSR, and on the other hand, she was coordinating drug logistics for him,” Ankita added. Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti also quoted this paragraph in the comments and wrote, “Bang on!”
Lokhande then asked, “Would anyone, who claims to have loved someone so deeply, allow the other person to consume drugs claiming to know his mental state and condition?” Ankita called this “an act of carelessness and irresponsibility.”
She further questioned if Rhea Chakraborty had informed his family “about his drug consumption” and added, “I am sure she didn’t because maybe she, herself, enjoyed consuming it. And this is why I feel it’s Karma/Fate.”
After indicating at Rhea throughout the post without naming her, Ankita Lokhande ended her post with the remark, “But let us maintain civility by not coming on to each other personally, either directly or indirectly.”
Rhea Chakraborty was taken in custody by Narcotics Control Bureau on Tuesday in a drug abuse case related to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
