Ankita Lokhande on Rhea Chakraborty: Should she have allowed a depressed man to consume drugs?
Sharing a piece of advice for the trolls, she ended saying, “Little advice for the unknown.’You guard your friend and I am standing by the family’. But let us maintain civility by not coming on to each other personally, either directly or indirectly.”
New Delhi: Actor Ankita Lokhande on Wednesday took to Twitter to clarify her stance on the events that led up to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. She also addressed to “haters”, where she talked about allegations against Rhea Chakraborty but did not name her.
She began the note saying, “I again clarify, for the reason time and again being asked by the media to me on whether I feel it’s a murder or suicide? I have never said it’s a murder or anyone in particular is responsible. I always have encouraged justice for my late friend SSR and stood by the bereaved family and truth should be brought out by the investigating agencies. Being a Maharashtrian and an Indian citizen, I have total faith in the Maharashtra State Govt/Police & Central Government instrumentalities. Though when some lingos like “Sautan” and “widow” were used for me, which is in public knowledge. I never responded to it. I only came forward to narrate about SSR and his mental health till 2016.”
In her message to the ‘haters’, she further wrote, “Dear Haters! Let us assume you must have known in and out about your friend and whats going on in her life and relationship. Glad to see you wake up finally, but I wish you would have woken up sooner and advised your friend not to support any kind of drug abuse by SSR if any.”

Without naming Rhea Chakraborty, she said, “When she very well knew about his mental state by publicly stating that he was in depression. Should she have allowed a depressed man to consume drugs? How is that going to help? His condition would deteriorate to a level that would make a man take the action that SSR has allegedly taken. She was the closest person to him at that time. On one hand, she says she was coordinating with all the doctors for his betterment of health on request of SSR, and on the other hand, she was coordinating drug logistics for him.”
