Sushant Singh Rajput & Ankita Lokhande call it quits after 6 years?

It seems 2016 is jinked for Bollywood couples. With so many break-up stories coming in, all we can say is that the year has started on a very sad note.

Close on the heels of Ranbir Kapoor-Katrina Kaif and Farhan Akhtar-Adhuna Bhabani breakups, there is now speculation that much in love couple Sushant Singh Rajput and Ankita Lokhande have hit a rough patch.

After dating for close to six years, reports of trouble in their relationship have started surfacing, though three months ago Sushant had announced he would tie the knot with the 31-year-old TV actress in December.

Recently, there were reports that Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora Khan were heading for divorce, thus ending their 17-year-old marriage.

Prior to this, Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli split up, ending their two-year courtship. The 27-year-old actress maintained a stoic silence on the breakup, but Kohli apparently unfollowed her on Twitter and Instagram and then, uploaded, deleted and re-uploaded a photograph of himself, originally captioned, ‘Heartbroken’.

We were all shocked to hear about Sushant Singh Rajput and Ankita Lokhande ending it, because everyone thought a big-fat wedding on the cards. A close friend of the couple told a daily, that it was Ankita’s insecurity that lead the fall out.

The source said that despite rumours, it wasn’t a selfie with Parineeti Chopra or any other woman that was the problem. The source said: “She knew he was not cheating on her. In fact, a few days ago, when Sushant went to Cape Town for three days for a shoot with two girls, he surprised her by asking her to accompany him. She was the only woman in his life for six years, He was happy if she was happy and vice versa.”

It appears that some of Ankita’s past bad experiences were responsible for her feelings. It appears she’d start calling the moment he wasn’t around.

The friend admitted: “She admitted that she couldn’t control them and after a while, he started reacting differently, not wanting to justify and repeat himself every day. He even told her that while he’d never flirt or date another woman, theirs was an open relationship and he would never question her on her whereabouts. But even that couldn’t cement a bond that was slowly breaking. He couldn’t convince her that nothing would go wrong.”

In fact, he started admitting defeat in the relationship as he started making solo appearances at awards functions and she even failed to turn up for his birthday bash.

On March 24, Sushant sent out the following tweet:


 Sure enough, Ankita too replied with the cutest proclamation of love one can make on social media:
What’s weird is that he has now deleted his tweet from Thursday and we wonder why. If they are not actually splitting, something is still not right between the two. It looked like a harmless enough message but not so much when you are planning to split. Maybe Sushant had intended it for someone else and Ankita thought it was about her and so to avoid the embarrassment, Sushant decided to delete his tweet.

He then sent out two more tweets on Friday night and early Saturday morning:

Is he saying that Ankita cannot understand his silence or the media doesn’t understand him? It is all too confusing. The only thing we are clear about is that Ankita still looks very much into him.

If you have been following Sushant closely on Instagram, you may have noticed fewer to almost no more photographs of the two stars together who have been living together.

The last time they were spotted as a couple was at the Zee Cine Awards on February 20. They looked happy and were holding hands on the red carpet. But soon afterwards, Sushant was seen making solo appearances everywhere and even his social media pages on Twitter and Instagram didn’t have any new photographs of Ankita, unlike before.


“They have simply grown apart. It happens. When they started, they both wanted similar things. They both had dreams. But somewhere along the way, Ankita was just content doing nothing while his career took off. I think that is where the disconnect began,” the daily reported.

Rumours indicate that Sushant’s Shiuddh Desi Romance co-star Parineeti Chopra may be the reason. Chopra also split from her boyfriend Maneesh Sharma last year.
