Sushant Singh Rajput passed away yesterday afternoon. The 34-year-old actor died by suicide. While the reason is not yet known, police have till now not found any suicide note. It is being said that he was battling depression for a long time now. Now, celebrity stylist Leepakshi Ellawadi who handled Sushant is opening up. She has even made some revelations on Ankita Lokhande.
For the unversed, Sushant and Ankita met on the sets of Pavitra Rishta. They fell in love and dated for almost 6 years. The duo called it quits in 2016. However, now Leepakshi Ellawadi has revealed that the late actor was indebted to his ex-girlfriend.
In a conversation with Times Of India, while talking about Sushant Singh Rajput, Leepakshi said, “When we were talking he told me how indebted he was to his ex-girlfriend Ankita Lokhande. According to him, she supported him very much when they were on television and during their struggling days. He became a big star. This is a real quality in somebody to look back and even if you are not with that person, appreciate them for what they have done for you. Even though their relationship went sour, he had only good things to say about her. I was really fond of him. When I heard the news I was in disbelief and shaking. He had so many more stories to tell me. We all get busy. He just suddenly decided that okay I am going to go.”
Leepakshi opened up about her last conversation with Sushant Singh Rajput. “I spoke to him last about two and a half or three months ago. I wouldn’t say that I am one of his closest friends or something like that. He was somebody who had so much to talk about. He never spoke about what upset him. He never sounded depressed to me ever. He had a very limited circle and he kept it to himself. He did not mingle too much in the industry and out there partying. But I can imagine he must be under so much pressure because there is this constant judging with regard to his films and personal lives. It is high time we pay attention to our mental health. People could never tell that this guy could do something like this,” she revealed.
Meanwhile, Ankita Lokhande has not yet given any public statement on Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise. May his close family members and friends gather the courage to deal with this unfortunate happening.
