Bigg Boss 17: Mired in Controversy Yet Again

The gripping reality television show, Bigg Boss, is approaching its finale for the seventeenth season. News from our source at Reader Wall indicates that one of the latest exciting episodes featured journalists becoming temporary housemates. The journalists questioned the contestants, delving into their personal lives and careers. Celebrity couple Vicky Jain and Ankita Lokhande, who caught the public’s attention for their matrimonial relationship, were in the firing line of the media’s probing inquiry.

The Media’s Encounter with Vicky Jain and Ankita Lokhande

During the episode, the behavioural patterns of Vicky Jain towards his wife inside the Bigg Boss house were scrutinized by the reporters. Concurrently, Ankita Lokhande was accused of exploiting the name of the late Sushant Singh Rajput to gain attention and sympathy from the audience and fellow housemates.

Ankita Lokhande, who has repeatedly mentioned the deceased actor inside the house, came under fire amid allegations of strategically invoking his name for the sake of the game. She vehemently denied these claims, emphatically stating that she is “proud” to discuss Rajput and focused solely on his positive aspects, in particular for those who aspire to replicate his career trajectory.

Ankita Lokhande’s Stand on Discussing Sushant Singh Rajput

The allegations suggesting that Lokhande was exploiting Rajput’s name and fandom for her advantage prompted her to discuss her genuine intentions. Lokhande justified her constant mentions of the late actor, describing him as an admirable individual whose virtues were worth highlighting on such a platform.

She explained, “Abhishek and I frequently discussed Sushant as he admires him deeply, and aspires to emulate his footsteps. I decided to share these positive aspects about him on this platform. I understand his journey, and there is a sense of familiarity.”

Proclaiming her pride in discussing Rajput, Lokhande asserted that her primary focus is on the admirable aspects of his life. She said, “If there is a young boy who looks up to him, I wouldn’t hesitate to share what I know about Sushant Singh Rajput.”

The Saga of Ankita Lokhande and Sushant Singh Rajput

Ankita Lokhande and Sushant Singh Rajput were involved in a committed relationship, having met on the set of the television show Pavitra Rishta. Nevertheless, after a seven-year romantic journey, their relationship came to an end.

Rajput tragically passed away in 2020. Following his passing, Lokhande refrained from public comments about her late ex-boyfriend. Her recent mentions of Rajput in Bigg Boss 17, however, have led some fans and critics alike to speculate that she may be seeking attention and sympathy.

This perception was further reinforced when Lokhande’s mother-in-law alleged that she was exploiting Rajput’s name to garner sympathy.
