Sushant Singh Rajput's tragic demise was a major blow to the entire industry. While his ex-girlfriend, Ankita Lokhande refused to react to his suicide earlier, she has finally broken her silence in her recent interaction with Republic TV. The actress dated Sushant for six long years before she parted ways and she insists he was never a depressed guy. Ankita believes depression is a big word to be used so casually and while he may be getting anxious, depression is not the term she would use for him. Sushant Singh Rajput’s Family Lawyer Dismisses Kangana Ranaut's Claims That Movie Mafias Were Involved in His Suicide, Says She Was Not in Touch with Sushant’s Father.

The actress in her first-ever interaction since Sushant's demise has strongly reacted to his suicide stories and denied them all completely.  "How much ever I know him, he wasn't a depressed guy. I have not seen a person like Sushant, a guy who used to write his own dreams, he had a diary... He had his 5-year plan — what he wants to do, how he will look, etc. And exactly after 5 years, he had fulfilled them. And when things like 'depression' are used after his name... it is heartbreaking. He might be upset, anxious, yes, but depression is a big word. Calling someone 'bipolar' is a big thing," she said.

Going further, Ankita also revealed how Sushant was someone she always looked up to. "The Sushant that I know, Main is cheez ko danke ki chot pe bol sakti hoon ki wo depressed nai tha. He came from a small town. He established himself on his own. He has taught me so many things, he taught me acting. Kisi ko pata bhi hai Sushant kaun aur kya tha? Everyone is writing their own portrayal of how 'depressed' he was, it hurts reading all of this," she added. Sushant Singh Rajput Case: Subramanian Swamy Feels the Dil Bechara Star Was Murdered; BJP MP Presents 26 Points to Support His Claim.

Finally, the Manikarnika actress insisted that she will never believe he was a depressed guy and she doesn't want anyone to remember him as someone who was depressed. Speaking about the same she said, "He found happiness in small things. He wanted to do farming, I know this for sure... he told me agar kuch nai hua to main apni short film bana lunga. He was not a depressed guy, not at all. I don't know what the situation was... but I will keep repeating this. I don't want people to remember him as a depressed guy, he was a hero. He was an inspiration."Sushant Singh Rajput Death Case: Supreme Court Refuses To Entertain PIL Seeking A CBI Probe.
