In a recent Instagram story, Shweta Singh Kirti, the sister of the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, expressed her affection for Ankita Lokhande, his Pavitra Rishta co-star and former girlfriend. She conveyed, “We love you Anki! You are the best and purest.”
This heartfelt message from Shweta comes in the wake of allegations made by Ankita’s mother-in-law, Ranjana Jain, in an interview where she suggested that Ankita frequently references Sushant Singh Rajput on the reality show Bigg Boss 17, where she is presently participating with her husband Vicky Jain, with the intention to “gain sympathy.”
Contrary to these claims, Ankita’s mother, Vandana Lokhande, disclosed in a recent interview with Galatta India that Ankita maintains a connection with Sushant’s family. Vandana stated, “Ankita and Sushant lived together for seven years in this house with me. She truly loved him… Ankita never talked about Sushant on her own.
One time Munawar asked her about him, and then Abhishek asked her. And she has always said good things about Sushant. I am very proud of that. She talks with Shweta, Rani di calls her, and she even talks to his father.”
Ankita’s mother’s interview followed the comments made by Ankita’s mother-in-law, who, in an interview with Saas Bahu Aur Saazish, insinuated that Ankita discusses Sushant Singh Rajput on the show to garner sympathy.
The mother-in-law remarked, “Sympathy jata rahi hai lagta hai, apne liye. Sushant ko kya pada, woh toh chala hi gaya. Woh tha tabhi bator ke le gaya, kitne acche acche kaam kiye usne (I think she is trying to gain sympathy for herself. What does Sushant care now? He’s gone. He got all the love when he was alive and did all the great things).”
Sushant Singh Rajput, known for his leading role in the popular TV show Pavitra Rishta alongside Ankita Lokhande, tragically passed away on June 14, 2020, at his Mumbai apartment. As controversies surround the portrayal of his memories, Shweta Singh Kirti’s gesture adds a touch of warmth to the ongoing discussions about the relationships that shaped the late actor’s life.
