Sushant Singh Rajput and Ankita Lokhande have been in a relationship for quite some time now. The two actors began dating on the sets of the TV show Pavitra Rishta, where the two played the lead couple. Ankita and Sushant are to tie the knot by the end of 2016, Rajput confirmed to a tabloid.
The actor-couple has been dating for the last six-seven years, and the two are in a live-in relationship now. Sushant told Mumbai Mirror, "I was told that if I get married, I will lose my female fan following. If that happens, I will quit acting."
The actor, who quit TV for the big screen, had made his Bollywood debut with the 2013 film Kai Po Che. After that, Sushant has been seen in films like Shudh Desi Romance (2013), PK (2014), and this year's Detective Byomkesh Bakshy. The actor is now stepping into the shoes of former Indian skipper MS Dhoni in the biopic of the latter. Titled MS Dhoni - The Untold Story, the film is being directed by Neeraj Pandey.
And in between his work commitments, Rajput is making sure he juggles his personal life with expertise. Sushant said, "Ankita wants an elaborate wedding, and it will happen at the end of next year when I am done with my current commitments. By then, I'll have a year to condition myself so that I can enjoy the wedding. I have no option."
