Let's admit that it took a tragic death of Sushant Singh Rajput to remind fans of his existence. Before that, only a few people cared about the Kai Po Che actor and what he was going through. His untimely death left many questions unanswered. Suddenly, people, who started calling themselves die-hard SSR fans, had started talking about mental health and awareness while some turned online detectives holding a WhatsApp University degree. A fair share of blame game had begun which created a lot of noise on social media. It's been close to 10 months since Sushant left to heavenly abode, but unfortunately, his ex-girlfriend, Ankita Lokhande, is still feeling the repercussions of online hate, for no reason whatsoever.
The so-called Sushant fans, who once lauded Ankita for standing up against all odds to bring justice to the actor's death, were the same people who began criticising her when she went back to her normal life. She was mercilessly trolled for allegedly forgetting Sushant and moving on in life and spending time with her boyfriend, Vicky Jain. This unnecessary online bullying did bother her but she kept her calm until now.
Fed up of being at the receiving end of hate and vile comments, Ankita lashed out at Sushant fans for subjecting her to incessant trolling. In an Instagram live session, Ankita spoke about the nasty comments she receives from Sushant fans on her posts which is taking a toll on her family members. She also opened up about going through depression and only her parents were there to support her during her terrible time.
"Main bhi depression se guzar chuki hoon lekin maine shayad inn cheezon ko jataya nahi. Main bhi bohot buri haalat mein thi. Mujhe bhi takleef hui. Mujhe bhi bohot rona aaya tha. Tab mere saath koi nahi tha par mera parivaar tha mere saath. Aur mere kuch fans jo aaj bhi mere saath khade hai,” Ankita said in the video.
She added, "Sabki apni-apni motives hoti hai life mein. Sushant always wanted to grow in his life and that is what he did. Woh chala gaya apne raaste. Uske liye main kahaan galat saabit hoti hoon? Mujhe kyun gaaliyaan di jaati hai? Maine kya galat kiya? You don't know what is my story, so stop blaming me. It is really hurtful.”
Just imagine to what degree Ankita was pushed mentally that she had to justify herself on a public platform for things she couldn't even be held responsible. Everybody knows that Ankita dated Sushant for nearly six years before they called it quits in 2016 on a bitter note. Both Ankita and Sushant had their own shares of sorrows and sufferings post break-up and they eventually moved on in life.
So what makes Sushant fans blame Ankita for his unhappiness and pain? Aren't you keeping yourself in that negative space which is filled with anger, bitterness and hate? Understand that you are not just ruining Ankita's life but your life as well. This blame game is making you look weak and powerless. It is not letting you learn from your own mistakes. You are attracting more such behaviours around you that will eventually come to haunt you.
Instead of finding fault in others, dear so-called Sushant fans, why can't you do something useful and productive that will help you become a better version of yourself? Free yourself from this hate, this negativity. And let Ankita live peacefully as you do.
