Sushant Singh Rajput’s death in 2020 brought quite a lot of negativity to Ankita Lokhande. The actress went through a lot of troubles as SSR’s fans blamed her for several reasons. She was deeply hurt as she lost her ex-boyfriend and also the trauma on social media added to her problems. In an interview with Bollywood Bubble, she has spilt some beans on her love story with Sushant and more. She disclosed that she faced a lot of things after her split with the Kai Po Che actor. The actress also revealed that she confronted suicidal thoughts as there would be days when she would just stay in bed without speaking a word to anyone. Not only this but Ankita also revealed that she had rejected Shah Rukh Khan starrer Happy New Year. Also, Bajirao Mastani was another movie she said no to because she wanted to marry Sushant.
Did Ankita Lokhande Reject Happy New Year and Bajirao Mastani because of Sushant Singh Rajput?
Shedding light on rejecting the dream debut, she said, “I gave up on many things. I gave up on Happy New Year. I remember Farah ma’am offered me the film and I met Shah Rukh sir also. He was like, ‘I will try to give you the best debut.’ And I was like, okay, but at the back of my mind… I was in Macau. Me, Sushant and Shah Rukh, we were sitting, and I was like, ‘Bhagwan, mera na ho (God, I hope I don’t get it).’ Ladki kaisi hoti hai na, she always tries, ‘Nahi yaar, mere partner ka achcha ho’ (A girl always wants the best for her partner).”
Talking about Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani and Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram Leela, she said that Sanjay told her, “Kar le Bajirao varna yaad rakh, pachtayegi tu (Do Bajirao Mastani or you will regret it later).’ He was literally praising me and Sanjay sir saying that is a very big thing. Then I was like, ‘Nahi sir, mujhe shaadi karni hai (No, sir. I want to get married).’ I still remember that and he did not have anything to say.”
