Mumbai: It was a classic case of girl meets boy, falls in love and they live happily ever after. However, careers and ambitions often play truant, tossing a relationship towards an unpleasant path. This is exactly what seems to have happened with actor Sushant Singh Rajput and his girlfriend Ankita Lokhande.
Until a few days back, there were talks of how the two are planning a December wedding, and now there are talks of the two separating.
The two met in 2009 on the sets of their debut TV show, Pavitra Rishta, fell in love and soon moved in together. Rumours of trouble in paradise started a few weeks ago, when Sushant started making solo public appearances. It was quite strange to see him alone at red-carpet events as mostly, Ankita always accompanied him and the duo would be inseparable. Of late, Ankita has been missing from Sushant’s social media posts as well.
Though our calls to Sushant went unanswered, he replied to us with a message, “I can’t talk about it right now. It is not a good feeling. Please, understand.”
A source close to the actor reveals, “As long as the two were on the same page professionally, it was fine. Sushant has had a successful run with films and Ankita’s career in Bollywood is yet to take off. This created friction between the two and somewhere, along the way, their ideologies didn’t match. They still have a lot of love and respect for each other but their relationship isn’t working. Their December wedding has obviously, been put on hold. Both of them are extremely disturbed with the way things have turned out for them. They are still trying to sort out their differences but it seems highly unlikely that they make amends. Sushant has completely shut off and has immersed himself into work. He has also been spending a lot of time with his friends to keep himself distracted. Ankita has been reaching out to the actor and they’ve been talking but their issues aren’t sorted.”
