Sushant Singh Rajput’s ex-girlfriend and actor Ankita Lokhande has claimed that Sushant was not “depressed.” In an interview with Republic TV, Ankita said that “Sushant was not the kind of a guy who would be depressed.”

The actor, who started dating Sushant during the TV show Pavitra Rishta, shared that “he was a happy-go-lucky guy” and they had both seen “worse situations in life.” Ankita further elaborated that within minutes after Sushant’s dead body was found, his death was declared a suicide, but as time has passed, she has started to wonder what exactly happened that day.

The actor further stated that she doesn’t want “people to remember him as a depressed guy. I want people to remember him as a hero.” She shared that he was a talented actor and an inspiration to many. Ankita then questioned those who have been making claims about the deceased actor and asked them, “Do you even know Sushant?”


Ankita Lokhande concluded the interview by saying, “I don’t know what the situation was, but I can say that he was not a depressed guy. Not at all.”

Endorsing Ankita’s opinion, Sushant’s sister Shweta Singh Kriti shared the video of her interview and wrote alongside “#SatyamevJayate #IndiaForSushant.”
