Post Sushant Singh Rajput’s untimely demise, the nepotism debate rekindled and it was reportedly blamed for the actor’s tragic death. Several filmmakers like Aditya Chopra, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and others were probed by Mumbai Police in the matter. Now, over a month later, Sushant’s former girlfriend and Pavitra Rishta co-star Ankita Lokhande has opened up about nepotism and how much it impacted Sushant. In a recent interview, Ankita revealed that when she was with Sushant, Ekta Kapoor, Sanjay Leela Bhansali offered him many films. 

In a chat with Times Now, Ankita opened up about nepotism and camps and said that it exists everywhere. She further went onto clarify that Sanjay offered several films to her and Sushant. She shared that she and Sushant could not do it because of their own reasons. She even claimed that Ekta Kapoor offered him several films and revealed that they shared a lovely and strong relationship. She said that when things came out about Sushant and Ekta Kapoor post his demise, she felt extremely bad. 

Ankita agreed that nepotism exists but said that relationships mattered more. Talking about Aditya Chopra from Yash Raj Films, Ankita said that the head honcho was supportive of him. She said that when Aditya Chopra used to call Sushant directly and the late actor always used to discuss his problems with him. She said, “Sushant left Pavitra Rishta because he wanted to do film and Ekta ma'am gave him the permission to do that. If there was nepotism and Ekta ma'am wanted to drag him she could have said so. Ekta ma'am and Sushant shared a lovely bond. Ekta ma'am also offered Sushant many films.” 

Further, talking about Bhansali, Ankita said, “Sanjay sir offered Sushant and me many films, he offered Sushant many films. I didn't do them because of my own personal reasons and Sushant didn't do it because of his reasons, but Sanjay sir was someone who believed in us, in our talent. We were the stupid ones who didn't do it. I can say this because I was there. At the time when I was with Sushant, Sanjay sir offered him a film, he didn't do it.”

Post Sushant’s demise, the Mumbai Police summoned Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Yash Raj Films head honcho Aditya Chopra for recording their statement in the actor’s case. Reportedly, Bhansali had offered four films to Sushant but they could not be worked out. Sushant also managed to make a name for himself on the world of television with Ekta Kapoor’s show, Pavitra Rishta. So far, over 38 people have been questioned in Sushant’s case by Mumbai Police. The actor passed away on June 14, 2020, at his apartment in Mumbai.

I was very sure ppl will say Amkita is sold or she is being threatened when I saw this interview. Ppl have been poisoned so much by Kangana that they want big names to be found guilty. They are not willing to accept that big production houses treated Sushant properly

Everyone is using his death to promote themselves!! She's saying Sanjay Leela B offered her filmS not one but many and she didn't do. Seriouslly? Everyone will promote themselves.. his Sandip friend who never made a film was posting the poster of the film appreantly Sushant had promised to do.. every single person who is speaking is using this even after his death imagine how he must have felt when he was alive and all they wanted to do was use him!! I think he is in a better place now it's disgusting to see the people he was surrounded by.

Either Ankita under pressure or plain bikk gayin. Moral of the story: this is a dirty business with beautiful people that sell their conscience. SSR would have been better off pursuing his academic career. It may have been less exciting but far more valuable and worthy.

watch sushant friend smita parikh on republic,she gave the most unbiased answers devoid of any personal agenda. She pointed out both Bollywood bullying him and also his staged suicide.What Ankita Lokhande said is not relevant today as she was not in touch after their breakup.

Reading her full statement,she mentioned she is saying on basis of what she saw when she was with shushant, (initial phase of shushant in industry) after their breakup, what happened she doesn’t know, may be with Aditya Chopra things got bad afterwards, which she doesn’t aware of.either she is giving half baked statement or media is giving wrong headlines.

You dont need to be brain surgeon to see ankita is lying here. It is public record aditya chopra abused banned vilified sushant. All his movies were given to ranveer singh. His name was constantly defamed by paid agents. I understand ankita is struggling actor and she also has some limits. Anyways, I believe his murder is from rhea and sandip with siddhart but for ankita to say sushant loved aditya is just sad and laughable. Money talks

Now Kangana can find other ways to settle her personal scores with people of the industry.

The plot is getting murkier ! Statements keep changing based on self vested interests . Bottom line Sushant ‘s life has become a mess post demise. His family should go with their gut feeling with their investigations. Not fall for the folks who keep changing stories based on what they drank the previous night ! They need to find out the events that eventually forced him to take his life. Everything points out to Rhea and her brother. Despite no job they have a luxurious lives. How did they become wealthy overnight ? Did they act alone or is someone guiding them ? Investigate these rogues and throw them behind bars !!!

Thank you Ankita for clarifying. It makes a difference to this nepotism debate.

I have one question Ankita : If everything was fine why SSR wanted to leave this industry ? You are lying AND corrupt like others ! SSR father himself said his son was suffering of rivalries in the industry ! Like we said in French : arrête ta mascarade ! I request you to shut up your mouth and stay away of this case ! We don’t need boughs losers by Bollywood mafia ! Pv post Thank !

Everyone is corrupt when it comes to money. It's sad that we all pick a side that fit our narrative and continue living life based on those ideologies. This is why we are divided as liberals vs conservatives, Theist vs Atheists, educated vs illiterate ... It makes no difference what we think, this is far bigger then most people can think. They are 5 steps ahead of everyone. I hope justice is served!

I agree, she can get sympathy as she was his ex but she kept loyalty towards big directors. How can a TV actor say no to Sanjay?
