She also said that the late actor was very sensitive and emotional about his career.
Talking about blind items written about him when Ankita was asked if he would have been affected by this she said, “Very badly. Sushant was very sensitive and very emotional about his career and everything. He was even affected by what people used to say about our relationship. He would be affected by what people would write about him. A boy, who came from outside and made it big solely due to his hard work, how would he be unaffected by such things?”
She also reportedly said, “Earlier, I used to be there to comfort him. I used to handle him and tell him, ‘It is okay, you can’t worry and keep everyone happy.’ I used to tell him that. But afterwards, things spiralled further. What you are telling me today, I didn’t know such things used to be written about him. But I am 1000% sure that he must have been affected. He would be affected by the smallest of things. His image was very valuable to him because he made it entirely on his own merit”.
Earlier Ankita denied that Sushant was in depression. She said he was a jovial person and it was not possible for him to be depressed about anything.
