Ankita Lokhande has finally broken her silence on Sushant Singh Rajput's death case. The two who fell in love on the sets of their show Pavitra Rishta, dated each other for a long period of time. They were supposed to settle in matrimony, however, destiny had something else planned. Now, in her latest interview, Ankita has spoken about Sushant Singh Rajput's connection with filmmakers like Aditya Chopra, Ekta Kapoor and Sanjay Leela Bhansali. A lot is being said about nepotism in Bollywood post SSR's death and now, Ankita has shared her views.
In an interview with Times Now, Ankita has shared that nepotism exists in Bollywood but she went on to clear that filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali had offered her and Sushant a film. They could not do it because of their reasons. She claimed that SLB gave many opportunities to Sushant, but the late actor refused it. She also spoke in defense of Ekta Kapoor and said that when Sushant decided to leave Pavitra Rishta and do Abhishek Kapoor's film, she did not hold him back. Lastly, when she was asked about Karan Johar and Yash Raj Film's head Aditya Chopra, Ankita said that she wasn't aware about SSR's deal with KJo. However, she mentioned that Aditya Chopra supported Sushant in every given way.
She was quoted saying, "Karan Johar ke time mein nahi thi Sushant ke saath. So mein uspe comment nahi kar sakti. But yes maam, Adi sir ke saath jab Sushant Yash Raj mein the, tab mein thi. Adi Sir ne bhi unko bohot support kiya hai. Sushant ko jab bhi koi bhi problem hoti thi, he used to call Adi Sir and say 'Sir I want to meet you.' He used to call Sushant ussi din, aisa bhi nahi chaar-paanch din late bulate the. He used to directly call and Sushant used to go and meet. Jo problems hoti thi, he used to talk directly to Adi Sir. Mein bhi sun rahi hoon bohot cheeze upar niche ho rahi. Aur mein issliye clear karna chahti hoon kyun ki yeh mere samne hue hain. Agar mujhe pata hi nahi hai Karan Johar ke saath kya deal hui, I have no idea about it but yes Aditya Chopra, Ekta Kapoor and Sanjay Leela Bhansali, yeh teen jab cheeze horahi thi tab mein Sushant ke saath thi, I have seen that. They were all very supportive."
