Sushant Singh Rajput's father opens up about the late actor
KK Singh also talks about the late actor's ex girlfriends Ankita Lokhande and Kriti Sanon, and his marriage plans
It's been weeks since Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput's tragic death. The news of his suicide, which had sent shockwaves everywhere, is still a hotly debated topic and new updates are doing the rounds daily. Now, the later actor's father, KK Singh, has opened up about his late son and his marriage plans.
In an interview with the entertainment portal Tadka Bollywood, the grieving father revealed that Sushant was born after a lot of prayers - he was born after four girls. According to a report on india.com, he also spoke about the late actor's former girlfriends Ankita Lokhande and Kriti Sanon, but said that he had never met or spoken to his last girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty.
Talking about Lokhande, Singh said that the actress not only visited the family in Mumbai but also paid them a visit in Patna. Ankita and Sushant had worked together on the popular TV drama Pavitra Rishta and were reportedly in a six-year relationship before calling it quits.
Singh said, "Ha, wo aayi bhi thi, Bombay bhi aayi thi aur Patna bhi aayi thi." (Yes, she had come to visit (us) in Mumbai and in Patna). When was asked about Sushant's relationship with Ankita, he said, "Yeh toh sanjog hai, jo hona hota hai hota hai." (It was destiny, what had to happen, happened).
Singh also discussed the late actor's wedding. He said that Sushant had told them to wait until the release of his next film and the wedding would take place next year around February. "Iss par baat hui thi, usne bola tha ki Corona me toh nahi, fir uske baad ek film aa rahi hai, wo karlenge, uske baad February-March mein dekhte hai karenge. Yehi last baat hui thi uske sath meri," he said. (We had a conversation about his wedding. He had asked us to wait till February-March next year once coronavirus time is over and his next film is released. That was the last time we talked.)
Singh said that the only condition he had put on Sushant for his marriage was that he should marry someone of his choice as he would have to spend the rest of his life with her.
The 34 year-old-actor was found dead at his Mumbai resident on June 14. Authorities have ruled it as a case of suicide, despite fans and netizens claiming there was something suspicious about his death.
According to a report in TOI, Chakraborty had revealed in her statement that she and Sushant were planning on settling down by the end of 2020.
Singh also said that Sanon had come to console him during the funeral. Though he doesn't remember everyone, he said that a girl named Kriti had told him that 'Sushant was a lovely man and it's a great loss'.
