Actor Ankita Lokhande on Tuesday posted a picture from her prayer corner. It is a month today since actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s tragic death. He died by suicide on June 14.

She wrote: “Child of God.” The picture showed a lit diya at her prayer corner, showing images of Lord Ganesha and saint Sai Baba in the background. She did not mention anyone’s name.

Ankita and Sushant, who first met during the making of their TV show Pavitra Rishta, soon fell in love and remained together for six years. Then, in 2016, they parted ways. Ankita reportedly took a really long time to heal and finally found love again in businessman Vicky Jain.

Sushant and Ankita’s common friend Prarthana Behere who starred with them in Pavitra Rishta had said in an interview: “I can tell this about Ankita, she is devastated and crying like hell, but one needs to understand everyone has moved on in their life. News sunne ke baad woh wahin atki paddi hai but she has someone in her life now and she has to respect that relationship also. She wanted to go, but everyone knows she is very emotional and sensitive. She is crying and how. When I posted on the Pavitra Rishta group let’s go and see Sushant for the last time, then we got to know that only 20 people can attend the funeral.”
