Pavitra Rishta

Actors Ankita Lokhande and the late Sushant Singh Rajput were dating each other for six years before calling it quits in 2016. The two met on the sets of Pavitra Rishta and love started brewing between them. Soon they became one of the hottest and most talked-about couples in the telly town. But did you know that the first meeting was very unexpected​?​ So much so that, Ankita thought the meeting was weird and that Sushant was angry with her as she didn’t show up on time. 

In an interview with The Quint, Ankita said, “It was very weird. I think it was really weird. Sushant was very silent like Shaheer (Sheikh) only I think he was doing his own work. Very much like Shaheer. He used to be on his own…We had to go for a promo shoot and Sushant had come to pick me up from my home and was downstairs. My mother was also there. I remember I got late. My hair and makeup were being done from 4 am and Sushant had reached my place around 5 am. 

She continued, “I came down at 6 am and he was very angry. After I came downstairs I got into the backseat of the car with my mother and fell asleep. He was so angry that firstly I came late and then went to sleep in the backseat. He took the car from the driver and did rash driving. I didn’t understand why he was doing like that. My mother then said ‘He is getting angry’. I was like ‘What can I do? He should have come upstairs’. That was my first meeting with Sushant that way. He was like ‘Oh she went and fell asleep in the backseat. She has the heroine attitude’.

Talking about Sushant’s legacy and new actors stepping into his role as Manav, she said to BollywoodBubble, “Nobody can replace Sushant. Nobody can. Because that was his and mine chemistry. So there will be people who will definitely not like it and I don’t blame them. Because they just loved us together. They just loved Sushant more than me I think.

Meanwhile, Ankita Lokhande will be reprising her role as Archana in Pavitra Rishta 2 where she will be starring opposite Shaheer Sheikh who essays the role of Manav in the romantic drama.
