Pavitra Rishta fame Ankita Lokhande has made a place in everyone's heart with her sweet Mulgi character in the Zee TV's show which ran for over 6 years. With her looks and hard work, the lady has grabbed many good opportunities in Bollywood too. In an interview, Ankita told that she has been offered a role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali movies but she denied it.
Later Ankita Lokhande got her big break with Kangana Ranaut in her upcoming venture Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. Debuting with Kangana, she will be portrayed as Jhalkari Bai in Manikarnika. She will be playing Rani Laxmi Bai's right hand and her looks from the movie left us awestruck.
Before her silver screen debut, Ankita did a photoshoot looking all radiant. Every bit of the actress was looking royal and regal wearing heavy jewellery still so simple and mesmerising. Have a look at her pictures:
Currently, she is busy shooting for Manikarnika. Talking on her equation with the leading lady Kangana Ranaut she said, "She’s sweet with me like she is with everyone else on the sets. We’ve practised together and she has helped me many times and also appreciated my scenes and dancing skills. When you are new and someone like Kangana supports you, it really means a lot."
Even though she has a supporting role, Ankita believes it will test her acting skills that will probably help her grabbing many roles in future.
Earlier, in an interview, Ankita talked about her broken heart and how the entire phase helped her to be a better human being. She revealed, “When it comes to working, I am the same Ankita. I believe in hard work. So that’s not changed. And my love for cinema is something I was born with. But, personally, I am more in control of my emotions and because my focus is on work, personal life is all about family and friends and my two dogs. I am in a good space and I just want to keep going forward”.
Also, the actress was asked if she still believes in a relationship, the Archana of TV said, “I’m still waiting for my prince charming (laughs). But I’m not consciously looking for a man. I’m done with that! I don’t need a man to reach somewhere in life. I’d rather have awards. There are no marriage plans right now”.
