Mr. K.K.Singh and Mrs.Singh – Sushant Singh Rajput Parents
Sushant Singh Rajput’s father is Mr. K.K. Singh. His father is a Rajput and a retired government official, who was transferred from Bihar to the National Capital, New Delhi in the early part of 2000s. Mr. K. K. Singh is now based in Delhi. When the bright Sushant who was pursuing his engineering degree, opted out from the course in order to realise his dreams of acting in Mumbai, his parents were shocked and against his choices. In a family of professionals that was filled with doctors and engineers, Sushant’s decision came as a bolt from the blue. His father thought that he was wasting his time and making the biggest mistake of his life. They probably took heart when Sushant promised them that he would return if things didn’t prosper for him.
Sushant’s mother, Mrs. Rajput was a homemaker. Unfortunately, he lost her in 2002. She too, was against his going away from Delhi and his engineering course to try his fortune in the shaky world of the entertainment industry. She had always wanted him to be an engineer.
Mitu Singh – Sushant Singh Rajput Elder Sister
Sushant Singh Rajput is the youngest of five siblings and his elder sisters have had a big hand in his getting pampered! One of his elder sisters, Mitu Singh is a sportsperson and a state-level cricket player. While one of his sisters’ lives overseas in the US, another one lives in Chandigarh and yet two more live in Delhi. His sisters are all professionals; and this fact in the face of the fact that he wanted to do something risky, must have really unsettled his parents. In his acclaimed film Kai Po Che, Sushant says that he was inspired by his Mitudi and modelled his character in the film after her; for him it was an emotional victory when Mitu recognised herself in his characterisation.
Ankita Lokhande – Sushant Singh Rajput Girlfriend
Sushant Singh Rajput has been in a long term live-in relationship with television actress Ankita Lokhande. The two fell in love with each other on the sets of their popular TV family serial, Pavitra Rishta. According to Sushant he had to really work hard to woo her, but he managed to overcome her initial dislike for him! He admits that though she isn’t his first girlfriend, she is his first serious relationship. Theirs is a case of ‘opposites attract’ for Ankita is an extrovert and Sushant is a shy introvert.
Sushant says that he is lucky to have Ankita in his life and loves the fact that she trusts him and unconditionally loves him. The couple is now reportedly planning for a 2014 marriage owing to family pressure, though some reports suggest that the two are already married and are keeping quiet about it because of career compulsions.
