Television star Ankita Lokhande, who shot to fame and became a household name after essaying the role of Archana Deshmukh in popular daily soap ‘Pavitra Rishta’ which also starred late actor Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead role, was trolled for celebrating her birthday on December 19 and sharing photos from the same on her verified social media handles. Trolls even went to the extent of targeting the star for inviting Sandip Ssingh for her birthday party.
For the unversed, Sandip’s name was under the radar in SSR’s death case and Ankita, although wasn’t in touch with the late actor for many years before his death in June earlier this year, had dated he ‘Dil Bechara’ star for over five years before they split in 2016.
Ankita, who partied and celebrated her 36th birthday with close ones and friends from the telly industry including Reshami Desai among others, took to Instagram to treat her fans with some inside photos from the party. However, it did not go down well with some of the fans of SSR. In fact, in a video shared by Reshami, on spotting Sandip at the party, social media users couldn’t hold it back and put up nasty comments on the photos and viral videos.
“Never expected u will call Sandip Singh,” wrote a user. “Why did u call sandip singh to ur party Ankita?? All of us want to know!! Dint expect this from u!!” wrote another.
Although Ankita did not react directly to the trolls, she put up a cryptic post on her Instagram Stories which read, “Me and my heart, we have got issues that we battle with, but one thing that will never live inside of us is hate. When you have thoughts of hatred inside of you, that is the ugliness from the soul that creates and controls all of your issues (sic).”
Another quote by her read, “I am a stable being. If people say negative about me… I know it’s just their opinion… created based on their sanskaars… or based on their mood today. Their opinion reflects their reality, not mine. I remain stable as I know who I am.”
For the unversed, Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his Bandra apartment on June 14 and investigation in his death case is still on.
