Sometime back, Bigg Boss 13 contestant Arti Singh had also talked about Sushant’s death and how Ankita is coping with it all. Arti said,
“I had known Sushant through Ankita (Lokhande) only. He was a very nice guy and was very motivating. I have spoken to Ankita and asked her if she is fine. Ankita needs her space and I want to give her that.”
Sushant’s father KK Singh had revealed to the media in an interview that Ankita is the only woman from his son’s life that he ever spoke to. Mr. Singh also revealed that Ankita had visited the family in Patna as well. Both were supposed to get married in December 2016 but unfortunately broke up in the first half of the year.
