(Trigger Warning)

Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise has been one of the most heartbreaking news of the year. The 34 year old actor was found dead in his Mumbai residence on June 14 under mysterious circumstances. It was reported that Sushant died by suicide and was also battling depression. His death, undoubtedly, sent down a wave of shock and disbelief across the nation. Everyone mourned the demise of the MS Dhoni: The Untold Story and several celebrities were seen marking their presence on his funeral in Mumbai.

Amid this, Sushant’s former girlfriend Ankita Lokhande’s absence from his funeral raised a lot of eyebrows. However, the Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi actress has stated that she decided not to attend the funeral as she couldn’t bear the sight of Sushant in that situation. During a recent conversation with Republic TV, Ankita stated, “A reporter called me and said 'Ankita, Sushant committed suicide' and I was finished. I decided not to go to his funeral because I knew if I saw him like that, I can't forget it.” She was later seen visiting Sushant’s residence in Mumbai and even met her family.

She further suggested that Sushant wasn’t a depressed man and used to find happiness in small things even if it was about enjoying gulab jamun. “Money was never an agenda for him. Whatever he did, he did with sincerity. He found joy in small things. Success never affected him, neither did defeat,” she added.

Meanwhile, Sushant’s father has filed an FIR against the late actor’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and accused her of forcing him to take the drastic step along with exploiting him financially.

Why are people judging? Its not easy for everyone to attend Funerals, its ok, it does not mean that you do not care for that person if yoi do not attend it, its hard for people, not everyone can do that. May be she did not want to see him in that state, be kind everyone.. one must have some compassion and empathy..

But that is the only last time you can see him in his body, then he is no more in body on this earth anymore. Your sorrow is understandable, but Kriti and Shradha braved that emotion. I am not judging, but that one last look ..

Ankita I know you loved him but enough of this already please. No need to go on like a grieving widow, remember he dumped you to make it in Bollywood. Either he was pressured to dump you or not, he wasn't strong in his feelings for you enough to fight for the relationship. Sad that he's gone but think about yourself, your future and respect your current relationship.

Exactly so. Now Ankita cannot stop talking. She has an answer (excuse) for everything. Sorry girl, you are not credible. Keep mum about SSR and let him R.I.P.
