Ankita Lokhande on Monday dropped a video remembering her former partner and late actor Sushant Singh Rajput on his first death anniversary. A collection of memories from the time Ankita and Sushant were dating, the video left people on the internet emotional. Sushant died on June 14 last year.

The video gives a glimpse into the kind of bond Sushant and Ankita shared with each other. “This was our journey ! Phir milenge chalte chalte,” Ankita wrote along with the video. After bidding him an emotional farewell with a promise to meet again in one video, Lokhande shared two more videos featuring herself, SSR and their friends, giving an insight into their life.

While one clip sees them celebrating Diwali 2011 together by dancing to folksy, sufi music, the other clip is slightly longer, and we see Sushant Singh Rajput and Ankita Lokhande discussing their future plans. The video was taken in October 2014, when Ankita was just a couple of days away from finishing her shoot of the popular show Pavitra Rishta. While Ankita mentions at one point about having kids with Sushant, Sushant talks of his upcoming projects, which include MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, Byomkesh Bakshi and the Shekhar Kapur-shelved Paani.

Ankita shared the video with the caption, “14th June 💔 This is who he was !!! Thank you Sushant for your part in my journey. See you again till we meet again 👋 Phir milenge chalte chalte 🙏🏻 Goodbye.”

Earlier this month, Ankita celebrated 12 years of Pavitra Rishta and spoke about how Sushant was the one who taught her how to act. Ankita and Sushant, who worked together in Pavitra Rishta, dated each other for 6 years.

“Sushant is no longer with us and Pavitra Rishta is definitely incomplete without him. Archana ka Manav sirf vahi tha (He was the only Manav to Archana). I am sure he is watching us today and is just happy wherever he is,” Ankita said, adding later, “Sushant always taught me acting. I wasn’t an actor. He was the one who used to teach me what is acting. Because I was a junior, he was a senior. He always taught me. He was a brilliant actor, brilliant co-star and I was very fortunate to work with him.”

Apart from Ankita, several actors paid their tribute to the Dil Bechara actor. Rajkummar Rao shared a picture of Sushant and tagged him as his brother. He wrote “Bhai” with a heart emoji. Mahesh Shetty shared a candid picture of Sushant and wrote, “This is how I’ll always remember you bhai. Love you meri jaan… now & forever #sushantsinghrajput”.

Sushant’s friend Varun Kumar shared a blurred picture remembering the actor and mentioned, “All what really matters to me is that you are really happy wherever you are, and I feel you are! We are in this together my brother for life.”

“You will always be alive in millions of hearts my friend,” wrote Arjun Bijlani.
