Bollywood celebrities, fans and even political figures offered their condolences on Sushant’s death. However, his ex-girlfriend Ankita Lokhande, rumoured ex-girlfriend Kriti Sanon and Rhea Chakraborty, who was reportedly dating Sushant, haven’t reacted to the news on their social media handles yet.
Here’s a look back at times when Sushant Singh Rajput found love.
Ankita Lokhande: Sushant Singh Rajput and Ankita Lokhande came close while playing the lead roles in Ekta Kapoor’s show Pavitra Rishta. The duo was loved for their onscreen chemistry and soon his on-screen wife Ankita turned into his real-life love interest. Sushant and Ankita dated for six years before calling it quits in 2016. They never spoke about their breakup. However, back then, Sushant in a tweet mentioned that “neither she was an alcoholic nor am a womaniser”. This was aimed at putting a full stop to the rumours regarding their separation.
In an interview to ETimes, Sushant’s stylist Leepakshi Ellawadi said, “When we were talking he told me how indebted he was to his ex-girlfriend Ankita Lokhande. Accord ing to him, she supported him very much when they were on television and during their struggling days. He became a big star. This is a real quality in somebody to look back and even if you are not with that person, appreciate them for what they have done for you. Even though their relationship went sour, he had only good things to say about her.”
Kriti Sanon: Sushant and Kriti Sanon reportedly began dating during the shooting of Raabta. Though the film tanked at the box office, their rumoured relationship hit headlines for a couple of months. Reacting on Sushant’s death, Kriti’s sister Nupur Sanon shared a photo with the actor. “नग़मे हैं ,शिकवे हैं ,किस्से हैं ,बातें हैं ..” she captioned the picture in which Sushant can be seen hugging Nupur.
Kriti has liked the post. Soon after posting the photo, Nupur also shared a note addressing the trolls. She lashed out at trolls for constantly messaging those “who are actually in a state of shock”. “Aap ki permission ho toh sukoon se ro sakte hain?? Please??,” she concluded.
