Bigg Boss contestant Ankita Lokhande, former girlfriend of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, has entered the show with her husband Vicky Jain. The husband-wife duo is part of the Salman Khan-hosted show and is among the favourites of fans.
However, fans of Sushant aren’t too happy with the ‘Pavitra Rishta’ actress for using the late actor's name repeatedly in the show. The actress who was in a relationship with Sushant for seven years during the making of ‘Pavitra Rishta’ has reportedly been bringing his name again and again in the show.
This has not gone down well with Sushant's fans who slammed her for using his name to gain voters and the likes of the audience. Ankita had earlier opened up about her breakup with Sushant and mentioned that he had suddenly disappeared without giving any explanation after years of live-in relationship.
Once again, the actress compared Abhishek Kumar, one of the contestants with Sushant. Speaking on the similarities, Ankita said, “Your physique, when you stroll around without a shirt in pants, strongly reminds me of Sushant. His body was similar to yours.”
She became emotional and further stated, “Sushant was hardworking to the next level. He would be very involved and was a perfectionist. I’m very easy-go-lucky, but he would dive deep into things. He would get affected by what people talked about him on Twitter.”
“He did not have anybody to stand up for him. Uske bare me baat karna acha lagta hai, proud feeling ati hai. He was family,” she added.
For the unversed, Sushant and Ankita met during 'Pavitra Rishta' and were in a live-in relationship for years until Sushant forayed into movies.
