Producer Sandip Ssingh has revealed that he wasn’t aware of his close friend and late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s plans to get married to actress Rhea Chakraborty.
The producer said only his ex-girlfriend Ankita Lonkhande truly understood him.
In conversation with SpotboyE, Sandip said: “We were always in touch over messages and calls,” he said. “I don’t think anybody speaks their mind when they want to do something like this. Moreover, there were a lot of people staying at his place.”
About Ankita, who Sushant dated for six years, Sandip said, “Ankita was not his girlfriend. She had taken the place of his mother in his life. In 20 years of my journey in the industry, I have never seen a girl like her. She has taken care of him like nobody else. She could have been the only one who could have saved him. She is used to doing everything rightfully for him. If she is used to getting ready as per Sushant’s choice. The food she used to cook was to be of his choice. The house interior used to be of what and how he likes. Books which used to be there in the house were what he likes to read. So everything used to be according to Sushant for his happiness. I really wish everyone gets a girl like Ankita.”
He added: “She is highly emotional and she was almost giving up her career at its peak for him. She was big on television and getting films offers also. Even after their break-up she would pray that his film should be successful, he should be happy. The day Sushant took this unfortunate step and when I saw him, my big worry was for Ankita. Throughout my journey from his house to the ambulance to a hospital that day, I was constantly calling up Ankita but she didn’t take my call. And I knew what she was going through. And after finishing my postmortem work, I ran to her house. I have known her for 10 years and I don’t think she had ever given me that hug which I got that day. She is my heart and I will do anything for her in my capabilities.”
Sandip said that he spoke to her recently and that she is still distraught. “I can’t tell you what they meant to each other,” he said.
