While both the actresses posed together during the promotions there were reports that Ankita did not like the Queen’s interfering attitude.

Sushant’s death caused troubles for Ankita

Sushant and Ankita were in a relationship for almost 6 years and went separate ways in 2016. So when Sush was found hanging in his apartment, Ankita had already moved on and so had Sushant Singh Rajput. However, when his death was announced many people accused Ankita of leaving the Kedarnath actor alone when he needed her the most. Ankita on her part tried to cooperate with Sushant’s parents and told them whatever she knew.

After her revelations, many other actresses came forward stating similar experiences and their personal stories. Despite repeated pressure, Ankita did not reveal the name of the producer.

Social media posts in bikini triggered controversy

Ankita had a decent image among the audience as Archana of Pavitra Rishta. So when she shared her pictures in a bikini on her social media page, conservative fans were enraged.
