Sushant Singh Rajput, who plays the lead in Abhishek Kapoor’s Kai Po Che, celebrated his 27th birthday at a suburban restaurant in Mumbai. A surprise birthday bash was thrown by his girlfriend and television actress Ankita Lokhande.
“Actually, Sushant had no plans for a party. Nor did he have an inkling of Ankita’s surprise party. Since he had to shoot for Maneesh Sharma’s film on his birthday, Sushant wanted to spend a quiet evening at home with his girlfriend and a bottle of champagne” said the couple’s close friend.
Ankita though, had other plans. She planned a surprise birthday party and invited all their friends from the movie and television industry.
“This is a very special year for Sushant. He makes his Bollywood debut this year. And Ankita wanted it to be a very special birthday” said the friend.
The couple, who fell in love on the sets of their television serial ‘Pavitra Rishta’, plan to tie the knot later this year.
“Sushant feels Ankita is as good as his wife. But they come from conservative families. For the sake of their families, Sushant and Anikta intend to go through a wedding ceremony this year”
