Several fans also remembered how Sushant had shared his last post on June 3 last year. Ankita and Sushant met on the sets of Ekta Kapoor’s Pavitra Rishta (2009) and fell in love. While he quit the show in 2011 to pursue his Bollywood dreams, she continued to be a part of the show till the end. The couple parted ways in 2016.
Earlier this month as Pavitra Rishta completed 12 years, Ankita Lokhande shared how Sushant taught her acting. “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,” she said in a video posted on Instagram.
On Pavitra Rishta, Sushant and Ankita played a much-in-love married couple Manav and Archana. Ankita, in her video, said that only “Sushant could be Archana’s Manav.” “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.
