Actor Ankita Lokhande expressed gratitude to her Instagram family, which has reached a count of three million on Saturday. She took to the platform to share a picture and a caption that read, “#2021 I welcome you with my open heart happy new year everyone. Cheers to 3M followers. Thanks for all the love #ankitalokhande #newyear2021 #3million #congratulations”. Fans were quick to post congratulatory messages in the comments box, however, a section of netizens trolled the Manikarnika actor by saying all her publicity was due to her ex-boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput, the Bollywood actor who passed away in June, last year. They even commented that she didn’t give credits to SSR fans.Also Read - Here’s a Glimpse of Ankita Lokhande-Vicky Jain’s Royal Blue Wedding Card, It Has Peacocks, a Special Mention to ‘Bride Tribe’ - See Details

“Half of your followers are fans of Sushant,” commented a user. “This has happened due to Sushant,” suggested another user. “2 million from Sushant’s fans please don’t forget that,” shared another user. Ankita was Sushant’s ex-girlfriend, and she even paid tribute to him at the recent award ceremony. It seems like Sushant’s fans didn’t like publishing the post.
