“Discussing my relationship also concerns the other party. I cannot talk about her (Ankita Lokhande) without her permission. A relationship talks about two different individuals, and that’s why I’m not ready to discuss the details with anyone,” says Rajput, who parted ways with Lokhande in April this year. The actor who is winning critical acclaim for his latest release, further explains, “I don’t mind talking about it, but when everything was going well (in my relationship), then there was no justification of me not discussing that. Then why now?”
According to reports, Lokhande created a scene at a party after getting drunk and accused Rajput of being a womaniser. However, the latter trashed the reports through a single tweet. Talking about what triggered that action, the 30-year-old actor clarifies, “I wouldn’t read newspapers or watch television when such stuff is being talked about. So I can’t comment on that. But when it reached a point where people would come to me and tell me personally about what is being said, then it became slightly nasty. It was then I took it to twitter to say what I wanted to. The very next moment, I was not concerned about those tweets.”
Rajput has often been linked to actor Kriti Sanon, as the two would be sharing screen space in an upcoming film.
On being asked if he expected his newly-acquired single status had triggered such rumours, he says, “I didn’t think that way of course, but rumours started eventually. After a while, you get immune to it and you resort to ways that keep you away from such things.”
