After Sushant Singh Rajput’s loss of life by suicide last month, Kangana Ranaut has been up in arms in opposition to the ‘movie mafia’. In a brand new interview, she claims that his ex-girlfriend Ankita Lokhande told her that he was subjected to ‘so much humiliation’ in Bollywood, together with damaging press and professional isolation.
In an interview with The Times of India, Kangana said that she known as her ‘dear friend’ and Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi co-star Ankita after Sushant’s loss of life to get a greater understanding of what he was like. “When I spoke to Ankita, she said right from the beginning, there was so much humiliation that he could not take it. This is how she summed it up,” Kangana said.
Sushant made it in Bollywood from the tv world, after ‘auditions after auditions, rejections after rejections’, Ankita told Kangana. He remained ‘so grounded’ even after turning into one of the sought-after stars in a brief span of time. However, he was very delicate to how he was perceived by others.
Kangana added, “But one thing that she (Ankita) also said about him was that he was not thick-skinned. He would sit on Twitter when he was new and would fight with fans, asking ‘why did you think that about me? Why did you say that about me? I am not this person that you are saying.’ Ankita told me that she used to tell him ki abhi ye toh hoga na. Everybody will have their perception of you, why are you so bothered about it? He just could not take that, he could not take what people thought about him. She said, over a period, the bad PR, the ganging up, the public humiliation, he just could not take it. He has had enough – that’s what she said.”
