When she was asked about her favourite co-star, Ankita revealed that Sushant has been her favourite. The duo dated for almost 6 years and they were one of the most loved couples in town. They parted their ways in 2016. Their chemistry in ‘Pavitra Rishta’ is still loved by the fans.
Sushant passed away on June 14 in 2020. His sudden demise shook the nation. His death case is currently being investigated by the CBI and NCB. Post his death, Ankita was blamed for their breakup. She went live on Instagram and urged netizens to stop blaming her as no one knows her side of the story.
Ankita addressed negative comments on her posts and dance videos and advised her haters to unfollow her if they have a problem with her. She said, “Jo cheezein mujhe achi nahin lagti, main follow nahin karti. Lekin main doosron ke account pe jaake unko gaaliyaan nahin deti (If I don’t like anything I don’t follow it. But, I don’t go and abuse them on their posts)”.
“Jo log aaj mujhpar ungli utha rahe hai, woh mere rishte ko jaante hi nahi the shayad. Aur agar itna hi aapko tha pyaar, toh ab kyun aakar aap lad rahe ho? Pehle kahaan the aaplog jab saari cheezein khatam ho rahi thi humari life mein. Aaj mujhe blame kiya jaata hai, par meri koi galti hi nahi hai (Those who are pointing fingers at me today know nothing about my relationship. And if you had loved him (Sushant) so much, then why are you fighting now? Where were you when everything was ending in our life? Today, I am being blamed, but I am not at fault),” she added.
Currently, she is in a relationship with Vicky Jain, who is a businessman.
