New Delhi: As Sushant Singh Rajput’s last film ‘Dil Bechara’ is set for a digital release on Friday, July 24, the actor’s ex-girlfriend Ankita Lokhande took to her Instagram handle on Thursday to post a heartfelt message for him.
Sharing a picture of a candle in front of a shrine, Ankita wrote: “Hope, prayers and strength. Keep smiling. Wherever you are!”
Sushant and Ankita had dated for six years before parting ways. Sushant’s untimely death left Ankita shaken and grief-stricken.
Earlier, a month after Sushant’s demise, Ankita shared a diya on her instagram handle and wrote, “Child of God.”
Ankita and Sushant had worked together as the lead pair in Zee TV’s popular sitcom ‘Pavitra Rishtaa.’ They even shared the same house before Sushant moved to a new apartment.
Sushant’s friend Ssandip Singh had shared a long post on his Instagram handle stating that only Ankita could have saved Sushant during crisis. She was like his mother, wife and girlfriend.

Dear Ankita, with each passing day, one thought keeps haunting me over and over again. Kaash… I wish… We could have tried even harder, we could've stopped him, we could've begged him! Even when you both seperated, you only prayed for his happiness and success… Your love was pure. It was special. You still haven't removed his name from the nameplate of your house❤️ I miss those days, when the three of us stayed together in lokhandwala as a family, we shared so many moments which bring tears to my heart today…cooking together, eating together, ac ka paani girna, our special Mutton bhaat, our long drives to uttan, lonavala or Goa! Our crazy holi! Those laughs we shared, those sensitive low phases of life when we were there for each other, you more than anyone. The things you did to bring a smile on Sushant's face. Even today, I believe that only you two were made for each other. You both are true love. These thoughts, these memories are hurting my heart…how do I get them back! I want them back! I want 'us three' back! Remember the Malpua!? And how he asked for my mother's Mutton curry like a little kid! I know that only you could've saved him. I wish you both got married as we dreamt. You could've saved him if he just let you be there…You were his girlfriend, his wife, his mother, his best friend forever. I love you Ankita. I hope I never lose a friend like you. I won't be able to take it.
