Ankita Lokhande’s husband Vicky shares how Sushant Singh Rajput's sudden death affected them; calls it a ‘tough test’
Much before she met Vicky Jain and fell in love with him, actress Ankita Lokhande was in a serious relationship with her Pavitra Rishta co-star Sushant Singh Rajput.
Actress Ankita Lokhande and businessman Vicky Jain met through common friends and began dating in the year 2018. A year later her beau reportedly went down on one knee and proposed. They were very happy together and their photographs on social media screamed ‘pure bliss’. They tied the nuptial knot in Mumbai last year and left fans gushing over their grand fairytale wedding. But there was a time back in 2020 when the couple went through a tough phase-- when the news of Sushant Singh Rajput ’s sudden death broke. Ankita, who was in a serious relationship with the actor from 2010 to 2016, was heartbroken just like the rest of the nation.
At this time, Ankita spoke about Sushant and their relationship in many media interactions. She even visited his family. Well, during a recent appearance on the show Smart Jodi , the actress shared, “I have forgotten my past. But in that moment, that thing needed me and I was unable to tell that to Vicky. But he understood me without me needing to say anything.” Vicky also stated that this episode shocked the entire nation and was something nobody could be prepared for. He added, “There cannot be a tougher test for a relationship than what happened suddenly.”
Back then, almost every time that Ankita and Vicky shared loved up snaps on social media, trolls showered their comment section with hateful comments. Many even accused Ankita of using Sushant’s name only for publicity. Talking about the same, Vicky shared that many people had wrong notions about things and he was unable to understand it. He stated, “I am proud of Ankita that she very boldly handled it. She fulfilled whatever duties and responsibilities she had. Wherever it was needed, she said her piece for herself and that relationship. For that honesty, I always supported her.”
Standing together in good times and bad, in happy times and sad-- isn’t that what love is?
