Sushant Singh Rajput and Ankita Lokhande were going strong while their television shows 'Pavitra Rishta' together. Apparently, their long relationship went kaput after Sushant's entry into Bollywood. In an interview to Mumbai Mirror, Ankita has spoken about her current relationship status with Sushant.

"I've always been open about my last relationship but even when I was in one, I didn't talk about my personal life, and I don't need to talk about it now. If it's my career, I can talk to you for hours, but not about this," divulged Ankita Lokhande to the publication.

Also talking about her Bollywood debut's character with Kangana Ranaut's 'Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi', Ankita said, "People only know Jhalkaribai as a warrior and a replica of Rani Lakshmibai, and that made the role doubly challenging. When I discussed my scenes with Danny sir (Danny Denzongpa), he advised me to do it my way and today I believe she must have been someone like me." Lokhande has also learned horse-riding and sword-fighting for the role and identifies with the strength, bravery, and loyalty of this little-known soldier who played an important role in the Rebellion of 1857. "Like every woman, I am a brave girl, capable of handling anything. I don't want to change myself for anyone," says Ankita.

Sushant Singh Rajput was in a serious relationship with Ankita Lokhande for seven long years. The duo even lived together and were rumoured to tie the knot. It was till Sushant entered Bollywood and his priorities changed. Sushant gained fame overnight and Ankita was clearly not comfortable with it. The couple had met on the sets of 'Pavitra Rishta' and were inseparable till news of Kriti Sanon being the other woman in Sushant's life hit the tabloids. Ankita and Sushant soon parted ways and it broke hearts of a lot of people.
