Ankita Lokhande on Bigg Boss about Sushant
On the Bigg Boss 17 live feed, Ankita was seen sitting and chatting with Isha Malviya and Abhishek Kumar. Ankita told them, “Even there in the top 5 (of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa) I was not that focused. I used to go out for a walk. I used to even tell Nishant (presumingly Nishant Bhat, who was also seen on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 4) to forget about the competition and go out with me.”
When Ankita had problems with Sushant
Abhishek asked Ankita about Sushant Singh Rajput, "Woh kaha tak pohuche they? (Where was he reached in the competition)?" Ankita replied, "He was in the top 2. I had told him to haar jaana beta. Tu jeet gaya na toh bohot problem ho jayegi. Usko pehla 30 mila tha, I had so many issues, I was like how did you get full score (I had told him to not win the show because it would have created problems for me. I had issues when he scored 30)."
Ankita on being possessive
After Isha asked Ankita who was Sushant's dance partner on the show, the actor said, “She was a very good dancer. One day while dancing she jumped on him. Oh shit, godh me chadh gayi (she jumped on his lap). I was very possessive, av mai thik ho gayi hu thora. Av mai normal ho gayi hu (now I am better). I used to get angry about such small things.”
Sushant paired up with choreographer Shampa in the show. He and Ankita were among the top contestants. Sushant and Ankita rose to fame after they starred together in ZeeTV's hit daily soap Pavitra Rishta. They dated for years and broke up in 2016.
Sushant was found dead in his apartment in 2020. Ankita is now married to Vicky Jain who is also in the Bigg Boss house.
