It has been around 45 days after the untimely demise of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, but the mysterious suicide is still hogging the limelight.


Sushant, who was best known for his role in MS Dhoni’s biopic, was aged 34. In between all the talks floating in the media that the actor was suffering from depression, Sushant’s ex-girlfriend Ankita Lokhande in an interview with Republic TV brushed all the claims and said it was never the case. Sushant was a ‘jolly person’ and ‘very optimistic about things around him, she remarked.

Ankita also revealed about Sushant’s admiration for former India captain MS Dhoni and the late actor wanted to be like him. She recalled the time when Sushant told her about a line that exists between success and failure, and how Dhoni keeps a lid on his emotions.


“‘Success aur failure ke beech line hoti hai, Dhoni was like that and I want to be like that’. He used to say when there was a failure, Dhoni is calm and if anything is good he still used to be calm,” Ankita said during her exclusive interview.

“He said if there was a failure he will bounce back. He used to find happiness in small things. He used to provide education to kids, stargaze, this was his happiness. But he cannot die for this. He cannot die for this,” she added.

Speaking of Sushant’s professional career, he was a commercially bankable actor with several successful films such as Kai Po Che, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, Kedarnath, Chichhore, etc.


Meanwhile, Dhoni fondly known as ‘Captain Cool’ is known for his great temperament and tremendous composure. He has one of the finest cricketing minds and is often hailed as an incredible strategy thinker. There have been many instances in the past where Dhoni has bowled everyone with his brilliance on the cricket field.
