The two started dating soon after they met on the sets of ‘Pavitra Rishta’ in 2009. Sushant and Ankita were a perfect example of love, started drifting apart soon after Sushant’s career shot to fame. Reportedly, the stardom and constant attention became too much for the two and their relationship.
While several reports claim that Sushant's closeness to his co-star Kriti Sanon was the reason for their breakup, others state that it was Ankita's clingy ways that caused the split.
On work front, Sushant is gearing up for the release of highly anticipated MS Dhoni biopic which has been directed by Neeraj Pandey....
