The media went berserk when news of Sushant Singh Rajput breaking up with his long time girlfriend Ankita Lonkhande started doing rounds. Further Sushant's mysterious tweets and Ankita's absence in his Holi part added more fuel to fire.
But now she finally opened up to Mumbai Mirror and brushed off all those rumours stating that she still loves Sushant. I don't know why everyone's speculating about our six-year relationship has ended and that we are no longer together. It's unnecessary and uncalled for. I am there with him as always, I love Sushant Singh Rajput unconditionally. These rumours are completely baseless and in bad taste,” Ankita said. She also said that she's been accompanying the actor to most social galas, with the exception of a recent Holi party, and that is because she has fractured her foot.
The 31-year-old actress also cleared that she spoke to Sushant, who is filming Dinesh Vijan's directorial 'Raabta' in Bucharest, yesterday and her beau were as shocked as her by all that is being written about them in the media. One of the things that have really baffled Ankita is talk about how she was insecure in the relationship and would get upset every time he stepped out of the home. Ankita admitted that she is “thoda possessive” about her partner but reasons that this is understandable to anyone you love dearly.
Ankita further insisted that she was never threatened by his reported closeness to Sushant’s Shuddh Desi Romance co-star Parineeti Chopra or Kriti Sanon, with whom he will be shooting for Raabta over the next two months. Refuting rumours of her slapping him in public over him frequently locking lips with Parineeti on screen, she retorted, “Such rumours hurt since I have always admired and respected Sushant for his loyalty and commitment. He has never played games with me. He has always been a one-woman man and I love my man.”
She agreed that like any other relationship they have had their fights, but as far as she is concerned, till Sushant tells her himself, there never will be a ‘split.’
It's only on the subject of her career that Ankita maintains that she never quit on it but was only on a break from TV so she could make a comeback with a completely new look in a film. “I've been in talks for some projects for the last six-seven months and there could be something coming up soon,” she said , adding that this could be one reason she may not take Sushant up on his invitation to visit him on location. “I have never visited him on his sets; I only went with him to Cape Town because I hadn't been to South Africa before. But this time, I will be really busy over the next couple of months with my own professional projects to drop in on him.”
So the big fat Indian wedding that Sushant has been prepping up for is still on the cards? “You'll definitely get invited to my wedding. As of now, all I can say is that anything that happens between us is our business alone. I can only assert that I love Sushant unconditionally and he, more than anyone else, knows it,” Ankita said with a laugh.
