Raabta actor Sushant Singh Rajput was in a relationship with actress Ankita Lokhande for six long years. They first met on the sets of Zee TV’s much popular show Pavitra Rishta and fell in love with each other. However, their relationship ended due to his alleged closeness with Bollywood actress Kriti Sanon, whom he met on the sets of Raabta. Ever since Sushant and Ankita’s broke up, the two were never spotted at any event, although they claim to be really good friends even post break up. Looks like the actor is avoiding bumping into Ankita.
Though they claim to be good friends, their actions speak something else. Reportedly, Sushant was invited for Zee Rishtey Awards, but the actor decided to ditch the function, which came as a shock to the organisers. If the reports were to be believed, the reason behind Sushant’s decision of skipping the award function was his former beau Ankita. Yes, we were as shocked as you, as the actor had been wishing all the best to Ankita for her upcoming Bollywood flick, Manikarnika The Queen of Jhansi while talking to the media making it seem like all is well between the two. Then, now what happened all of a sudden?
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, the organisers had planned to honour the past hit shows planning and the actors who were a part of the show. As we know, Ekta Kapoor‘s Pavitra Rishta was one of the much-celebrated shows on television then; the lead actors of the show Sushant and Ankita, who rose to fame with the same, were invited to collect the award jointly. Since Sushant decided to ditch the event (that was held over the last weekend) the last minute, the actress Ankita had to go solo on stage to receive the award.
Sushant’s behaviour did shock many as veteran actors had turned up to receive the honour while Sushant decided to skip it. But Ankita wasn’t disappointed with Sushant’s move as she seems pretty cool in this video. In fact, the actress took to Instagram to share the picture of the award and wrote, “About last night for #zeerishteyawards2017 and now the zee is 25years old congratulations @zeetv and thankyou so much for this lovely award #zeekishaan and motivating me towards my new journey pavitra rishta tere mere Mann ka❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ ❤️and thankyou so much for giving me the honour of unveiling the new logo of @zeetv with my dance performance styling – @bienmode Earrings- @houseofshikha Ivory outfit- @elishawadhwaniofficial” Ankita is certainly excited to have received the award. Also, veteran actor Ashok Saraf had shown up to bag the honour for his popular show Hum Paanch.
