All sorts of rumpus are flying about in Bollywood about the “sudden and shocking” breakup of heartthrobs Sushant Singh Rajput and Ankita Lokhande.
They met in 2009 on the sets of their first TV show Pavitra Rishta and soon were living together. She also participated in celebrity dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa (Season 4), along with Sushant Singh Rajput on Sony TV.
Everything was hunky-dory until a few weeks ago, when they started appearing at events individually. Their names were also found to be missing from their individual social media posts and tweets. The buzz is that the separation was because of alleged drinking habits of one and the predilection for wandering in search of other partners by the other. They were said to have separated two months ago.
Sushant wrote on Twitter (@itsSSR)that:
What matters in life is not what happens to you but what you remember and how you remember it.
Neither she was an alcoholic nor I am a womaniser . People do Grow apart & its unfortunate . Period!!
Aankita s lokhaande. @anky1912: “So many years of education yet nobody ever taught me how to love myself and why it’s so important”
They had earlier announced that they would wed this December and both had quashed rumours of their separation in interviews to the media.
One of Sushant’s friends said the breakup has affected Sushant immensely. “Sushant has completely shut off and has immersed himself into work. He has also been spending a lot of time with his friends to keep himself distracted. Ankita has been reaching out to the actor and they’ve been talking but their issues aren’t sorted,” the friend was quoted by a news source as saying. – CINEWS
