In a recent interview, the Manikarnika actress recalled the unexpected shock when she was woken from sleep by a call from an unknown number who informed her of the actor's tragic demise. Ankita said, "I picked up the call and there was this reporter and she said 'Ankita!! Sushant has committed suicide. And I was finished! It was something... you don't expect something like this... It is very difficult for me... and for all of us... I went out... my mom was there... and it was all over. All news channels had only this... that Sushant is no more... that he had committed suicide, that was the headline... and I didn't know what to do."

The actress also said that it took time for her to accept the 'depression' narrative around Sushant Singh Rajput's death, and said, "He was not a man who could take such a step." She also added that it was unbelievable for her to accept that the actor took his own life.

In another interivew, she had called Sushant a hero and an inspiration, Ankita Lokhande said, "He found happiness in small things. He wanted to do farming, I know this for sure... he told me agar kuch nai hua to main apni short film bana lunga (if nothing else, I will make my short film). He was not a depressed guy, not at all. I don't know what the situation was... but I will keep repeating this. I don't want people to remember him as a depressed guy, he was a hero. He was an inspiration."

The 34-year-old actor was found dead on June 14 at his sixth-floor apartment in Bandra (West). SSR's colleagues and friends from the film and television industry expressed shock and sorrow over his death on social media.
