In a poignant moment on Bigg Boss 17, Ankita Lokhande opened up about her decision to not attend Sushant Singh Rajput’s funeral, shedding light on the emotional turmoil she experienced. The conversation unfolded during a heart-to-heart with Munawar Faruqui on the reality show.
Ankita, visibly emotional, disclosed that despite Vicky Jain’s encouragement, she chose not to attend Sushant’s funeral, expressing her inability to witness the heartbreaking scene. She conveyed to Munawar, “Mat bol yeh saari cheezein, woh hit karti hain buri tareeke se (Don’t say all these things, they hit me badly).” However, she appreciated Munawar’s sentiments and proceeded to sing “Kaun Tujhe Yun Pyaar Karega” from Sushant’s film MS Dhoni: The Untold Story.
Reflecting on Sushant, Ankita described him as a “bohot acha insaan” (a very good person) and admitted that using past tense when talking about him felt strange. She acknowledged the challenging period after his untimely demise and how Vicky, Sushant’s friend, also grappled with the loss.
When Munawar inquired if Ankita knew what went ‘wrong’ with Sushant, she responded affirmatively, indicating her awareness of certain aspects surrounding his passing. Ankita then revealed her emotional struggle with the decision not to attend his funeral, citing an inability to confront the overwhelming grief.
“I did not even go to the funeral. I couldn’t go. I thought I wouldn’t be able to see that. Vicky asked me to go, but I couldn’t muster up that courage,” Ankita shared, offering a glimpse into the complex emotions she faced during that challenging time.
The revelation on Bigg Boss 17 provides viewers with a deeper understanding of Ankita Lokhande’s personal journey and the profound impact of losing someone close to her heart.
