MUMBAI: Bollywood actress Ankita Lokhande broke her silence on ex-boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput's suicide saying that he was neither depressed nor had mental health issues.
She said that when they were dating, Sushant has been in worse situations and was a happy-go-lucky guy.
Ankita and Sushant met on the sets of their hit TV show 'Pavitra Rishta.' They were briefly engaged until they broke up in 2016.
Ankita said that Sushant was always optimistic. He had told her if he does not get any films, he will make a short film and be very happy about it. He will even opt for farming to survive. He also had great dreams and wrote it all down. He fulfilled all of his dreams within five years' time.
Ankita highlights that depression is a very strong word and cannot be associated with Sushant.
Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide in June this year. His father filed FIR against his then-girlfriend Rhea Chakraborthy for harassing him and for extorting money from him.
Sushant’s sister Shwetha extended her support to Sushant.
