Actor Ankita Lokhande made “certain clarifications” after Sushant Singh Rajput’s former girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, in an interview to India Today, claimed that Ankita was in touch with the late actor until the release of her debut Bollywood film Manikarnika in 2019.

Denying the claim, Ankita, who dated Sushant, stated, “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.”

Clarifying it further, Ankita added, “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 poster posted on a friend’s insta post. Mukesh Chabra, he just wished me luck for the project and in a courteous way I replied. So I deny Rhea’s claim that I have said we spoke on the phone.”
