‘Sushant Didn’t Suffer From Depression’: Ankita Lokhande Rebuts Rhea Chakraborty’s Claims

Mumbai: Bollywood actress Ankita Lokhande, who had been dating Sushant Singh Rajput for six years till 2016, clarified on Friday that the late actor neither had any condition of depression nor did he visit any psychiatrist.


In a social media statement, Ankita also denied that she was in touch with Sushant after the two broke up.

Ankita’s denial came a day after her name was brought up during an interview Rhea Chakraborty gave to India Today on Thursday. Rhea had claimed that Ankita was in touch with Sushant before the release of her film, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi.

“1st of all from beginning till the end me and Sushant were together about 23rd February 2016. He never had any conditions of depression and had visited any psychiatrist. He was totally fine,” Ankita wrote on Instagram.

“Neither in any platform I have ever said that me and Sushant were in touch with each other after our separation. Fact is what I have said while shooting for Manikarnika, Sushant has commented on one of my posters on a friend’s Insta post, Mukesh Chabra, he just wished me luck for the project and in a courteous way I replied,” she posted.

“So I deny Rhea’s claim that I have said we spoke on the phone. In fact what I spoke about in the interviews till now, the time Sushant and me were together, he was never in any kind of depression. We saw dreams together for his success and I prayed and he succeeded. This is all I have said. I clearly mentioned if any of the questions were being asked to me about Rhea. My replies were honest that I really don’t know her and about their relationship as I was hardly bothered. I only got bothered when someone lost his life and if I was questioned about the time when we were together I will speak honestly and reveal the truth,” she added.

Ankita also offered a clarification about Rhea’s suggestion that the flat she is living in was paid for by Sushant. “About the flat I have already cleared and (Sushant’s) family has no different opinion opposite mine. So I still sticking on grounds of truth and accept that I have been standing on the family’s side, not Rhea. In family’s knowledge and understanding she is the one who persuaded him towards this end. And they have chats and proof which can’t be denied and overlooked too. So I heard the family’s side, stood by it, stick by it till the end,” she wrote.

Ankita had previously shared copies of her payments towards the flat, after it was reported that Sushant was the one who had paid for it. Ankita had also offered a rebuttal to Rhea’s claims that Sushant felt claustrophobic on flights, by sharing a video of the actor in a flight simulator, Hindustan Times reported.
