On the 15th day of Bigg Boss 17, the popular television actress Ankita Lokhande took centre stage to share her deeply personal and emotional story about her past relationship with the late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Her revelations touched the hearts of viewers and left many in tears.

From On-Screen Romance to Real-Life Love

Ankita and Sushant’s love story began in the spotlight as they starred together on the hit TV show ‘Pavitra Rishta.’ Ankita played the role of Archana, while Sushant portrayed Manav. Their on-screen chemistry soon translated into a real-life romance, captivating fans across the nation.

A Sudden and Unexpected End

During an emotional heart-to-heart conversation with fellow contestant Munawar Faruqui, Ankita disclosed that they had been in a loving relationship for several years. However, her world turned upside down when Sushant made the abrupt decision to part ways, leaving her completely shattered. The breakup came as a shock to Ankita, and she struggled to come to terms with it.

The discussion also delved into the challenging aftermath of Sushant’s tragic death in 2020. Ankita revealed that she faced online trolling and malicious rumours after his passing. This compelled her to step forward and set the record straight, ensuring that the world knew the ‘real’ Sushant, rather than the distorted image that had been created by some.

In her own words, Ankita explained her motivation, saying, “I wasn’t directly involved in the controversies, but I felt compelled to stand up for him. I wanted people to know who he truly was. Where were these people when I was going through my breakup? I endured that phase alone. There was no apparent reason for our separation. Everything in my life changed overnight. My primary concern was that if he had shared his thoughts and struggles with me, I would have understood. I could see in his eyes that something was amiss.”
