It was three years ago when it came as a shock to the fans of Ankita Lokhande and Sushant Singh Rajput’s that the couple called it quits. The couple had been dating for almost 6 years & the reason why they split up was still not known. However they have now moved on with their lives and Ankita is now dating Vicky Jain, a businessman from Bilaspur.
Over a few previous years, a flurry of Television actors namely Sushant Singh Rajput, Mohit Raina, Mouni Roy & Mrunal Thakur have made their Bollywood debuts. The person to be added on to this list is the Pavitra Rishta actress Ankita Lokhande who will be making her debut in the Kangana Ranaut starring movie Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi.
In an interview, she said:
I think I joined the movies at the right time. Bollywood has changed a lot now. People are talking about women-centric films, they are appreciating good actresses. I have given six years of my life to TV and now I want to give time to films. Also, TV is my home and I can go back any time.
When asked by TOI if Ankita would consider sharing her screen space with Sushant Singh Rajput once again, considering the fact that now, both of them are doing Bollywood films, the actress said that
“As an actor, I have no choice. If the script is good I will definitely work with him.”
She was also asked in another interview as to whether exes could be friends to which she replied
Depends on their history. I won’t rule it out, Deepika-Ranbir are a case in point.” However, she firmly said that there was no way that she and Sushant could reunite. “We are not on talking terms.
When asked about the experience of working in movies after television, she told an entertainment portal in an interview
The only thing that has changed for me is the camera. Everything else is the same. Hard work toh shayad TV par zyaada tha. We used to shoot daily with no time limits. I have worked for 128 hours (a week) continuously for TV. Here in the movies, it’s a 12-hour shift, you get time to prepare.
