Ankita Lokhande has penned a note on Instagram explaining why she called Rhea Chakraborty’s arrest and act of “karma”. She has also shared a message for her haters, claiming that Rhea was at fault behind Sushant Singh Rajput’s alleged drug consumption, despite knowing about his mental condition.
She began the note saying, “I again clarify, for the reason time and again being asked by the media to me on whether I feel it’s a murder or suicide? I have never said it’s a murder or anyone in particular is responsible. I always have encouraged justice for my late friend SSR and stood by the bereaved family and truth should be brought out by the investigating agencies. Being a Maharashtrian and an Indian citizen, I have total faith in the Maharashtra State Govt/Police & Central Government instrumentalities. Though when some lingos like “Sautan” and “widow” were used for me, which is in public knowledge. I never responded to it. I only came forward to narrate about SSR and his mental health till 2016.”
In her message to the ‘haters’, she further wrote, “Dear Haters! Let us assume you must have known in and out about your friend and whats going on in her life and relationship. Glad to see you wake up finally, but I wish you would have woken up sooner and advised your friend not to support any kind of drug abuse by SSR if any.”

Without naming Rhea Chakraborty, she said, “When she very well knew about his mental state by publicly stating that he was in depression. Should she have allowed a depressed man to consume drugs? How is that going to help? His condition would deteriorate to a level that would make a man take the action that SSR has allegedly taken. She was the closest person to him at that time. On one hand, she says she was coordinating with all the doctors for his betterment of health on request of SSR, and on the other hand, she was coordinating drug logistics for him.”
She went on to explain why she called the arrest of Rhea as “karma” and said, “Would anyone, who claims to have loved someone so deeply, allow the other person to consume drugs claiming to know his mental state and condition? Would you do that? I don’t think anyone would. So how can it not be seen as an act of carelessness and irresponsibility? As per her, she informed his family about his ongoing treatment but did she ever inform them about his drug consumption? I am sure she didn’t because maybe she, herself, enjoyed consuming it. And this is why I feel it’s Karma/Fate.”
Sharing a piece of advice for the trolls, she ended saying, “Little advice for the unknown.’You guard your friend and I am standing by the family’. But let us maintain civility by not coming on to each other personally, either directly or indirectly.”
Ankita is in relationship with Vicky Jain, who supported her in the comments section. He wrote, “You couldn’t be more pertinent. Respect.” Ankita acknowledged his comment with a heart and hands folded in prayer emoji.
Sushant’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti picked up one of Ankita’s quotes and highlighted it in the comments section. She wrote in her reaction to the post, “’On one hand, she says she was coordinating with all the doctors for his betterment of health on request of SSR, and on the other hand, she was coordinating drug logistics for him.” Bang on.” Many other TV and film celebrities including Adhyayan Suman, Nandish Sandhu and Kashmera Shah also showed support for her in comments.
