Ankita Lokhande Mentions Support From Vicky Jain
In a recent interview, the actress revealed how supportive Vicky Jain has been to her after Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. The actress told that after her breakup with SSR in 2016, she started dating her now-husband Vicky in 2018. But, soon after when Sushant died, trolls attacked Vicky. “They started saying, ‘Ankita was best for Sushant and she should always be with Sushant’. Social media turned abusive towards Vicky telling him to leave me because I was good for Sushant. It is not easy for a man to watch his to-be wife giving interviews about her ex-boyfriend on television and talking about her past. There were different stories emerging every day and I was right there talking about Sushant all the time.”
Appreciating the efforts from Vicky’s end, she added, “Had it been some other guy, he would have quit, but Vicky stood there and became my strength and told me, ‘Do whatever you think is best for Sushant’ and that’s why I could do my best for Sushant. We were both living in a state of shock and trolls made life even more difficult for us. When Sushant died and I started talking about him, I was in a constant state of confusion about whether I was doing the right thing, and Vicky was the one who supported me. For six months, there were constant stories of my past with Sushant emerging. If I was in Vicky’s position, I would not have been able to see him talking about his past with a woman. I had taken a stand for Sushant and I could do that because Vicky was on my side.”
