Celeb break-ups and patch-ups are as much the part of the telly land as are the glamour and glitz of the industry. One such celeb couple who used to be inseparable once was Ankita Lokhande and Sushant Singh Rajput. We’re saying ‘was’ because they aren’t together anymore as many of you fans must be knowing.

Ankita and Sushant first met on the sets of Pavitra Rishta and soon cupid struck between them. However, the couple parted in 2015. In a recent interview with the DNA, Ankita opened up about her break-up with Sushant and how it changed her life. She was quoted as saying, “Back then, I was trying to be a homemaker and doing a very big job. When I was working, I was satisfied; when I wasn’t, I was still happy. I’m okay with whatever I do. Aisa kabhi nahin tha ki mujhe yeh chahiye ya woh chahiye. I decided to take a break because I was happy with that then. It was not just for myself. I guess, the Universe wanted me to get back professionally, which is why I’m here now. I won’t say the break-up affected my profession, though. Love and work are two separate things. You need to balance them and I’ll say I wasn’t able to do that”.
She also added that her break-up with Sushant and also the break from professional life helped her to love herself. She said, “Of course, there is! (referring to the scope of new relationships in her life). I’m still waiting for my prince charming (laughs). But I’m not consciously looking for a man. I’m done with that! I don’t need a man to reach somewhere in life. I’d rather have awards”. (Suggested Read: Chahatt Khanna Shares First Family Picture With Her Second Baby Girl, Six-Month-Old Amaira Mirza)
Speaking about her marriage plans, she added, “There are no marriage plans right now. Like I said, I’m still waiting for my prince charming”. Taking a stand on the silence of her break-up, Ankita added, “Obviously, it affects you a lot. You don’t know what’s happening with you but it’s all there in the papers. However, I actually feel it makes you stronger. Today, I don’t feel anything. That’s it. Whatever the things were, my family and friends were with me”.
Post their break-up, Sushant allegedly fell in love with his Raabta co-actor, Kriti Sanon. And the rumour of them dating was reportedly was the reason behind Sushant and Ankita's break-up. (Don't Miss: Angad Bedi Reacts To Ex-GF Nora Fatehi's Comment, Says He Wants To Make Time For His Loving Wife)
Also, rumour has it, that Ankita had fallen in love with a businessman from Raipur, named Vikas Jain. A media report was quoted as saying, “They have known each other from the past few years. They met through common friends from the telly world. But recently, the two have got close. That they are more than just friends was evident from their body language at a Holi bash last month. Vikas and Ankita often hang out together with common friends”.
Later, she denied the rumours and told a media portal, “It has been one year since I am tired of listening to my own things. I am dating this guy or the other. Whenever I date someone, it will be out from my side. It is ok (the constant rumours), I cannot help it”.
Well, we really hope that Ankita finds her prince charming soon and that we get to see their PDA on social media.
