Late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti has opened up about how actress Ankita Lokhande stood by their family even after the actor’s death. She was responding to allegations that Ankita was using the late actor’s name for publicity.

“A user commented on Shweta Singh Kirti’s Facebook post saying, “Shweta Singh Kirti why do u support Ankit lokhnde b she hd been using Sushant n her fake affair vd him for her PR. In fact she is one partying vd most of the suspects involved in Annihilation OF SUSHANT (sic).” Responding to the comment, Shweta said that she has seen Ankita take care of Sushant while he was ill, and that she has a ‘kind and loving heart’.  

She wrote: “Drdivya I really don’t know what the truth is….but it is hard for me to overlook how Ankita has always stood by the family even after the death of Bhai. I have seen her take care of Bhai, once when I was visiting him in Mumbai and he had stomach pain I saw how she called the doc, gave him medicine and showered him with love. The act was enough to prove to me that she has a kind and loving heart.”

Shweta said she has full faith in the CBI probe. “I have full faith in the CBI and I am waiting for them to tell us the truth. I am praying to God everyday so that the truth comes out and I believe there is no bigger power than him. Have faith and stay strong,” she wrote.

After Sushant’s death in June last year, Ankita has been at the receiving end of social media hatred for ‘enjoying’ and ‘moving on’. Ankita and Sushant, co-actors in television show Pavitra Rishta, were in a relationship for over six years.
