‘Manikarnika’ Actress, Ankita Lokhande Opened Up On How She Came Out Strongly Post Breakup With Sushant
Ankita Lokhande is an emerging actress who made her debut in Bollywood film, Manikarnika starring with Kangana Ranaut. Before getting into Bollywood, she was as an actor in the TV serial, Pavitra Rishta, and has come a long way since then. Ankita grabbed headlines not only for her profession but also for her personal life.
Ankita was previously in a relationship with her co-star, Sushant Singh Rajput. Sushant is now a successful actor in Bollywood. Both of them have now amicably moved on in their lives. According to a report, Ankita is all set to marry Vicky Jain who is a co-owner of Mumbai team of Box Cricket League. A Bombay Times report last year (2018) had suggested, “After her breakup with Sushant, Ankita found her soulmate in Vicky. The couple is seen at many parties together and has also travelled to various holiday destinations. All of their friends know about the relationship. Ankita is also very close to Vicky’s family and is often spotted with his sister. Currently, she is occupied with her film promotions, but she is planning to get married in 2019.”
In a recent interview with Mid-Day, Ankita opened up about her career, her choice of films and serials, and also her love life. Sharing how she started her career in Mumbai, Ankita said, “I always wanted to become a heroine. I was not good at studies and neither was I interested. I just wanted to become a heroine. I wrote my dream down in a diary, “I hope mom and dad let me go to Mumbai”. They thought it was a child’s dream. But when Zee Cinestars Ki Khoj happened in 2004, they let me come to Mumbai from Indore. My mother said it was because she never wanted me to regret the fact that I didn’t take a chance.”
She further added, “Once I arrived here, I realised what a beast it was [the city]. I don’t think I have changed in all these years; I am the same me. I am the same to my family, my childhood friends, and I feel good about it. The best thing about me is that I am from a middle-class family. I know where I am coming from and my values. One needs to remember that. Mumbai changes you, if you don’t know where you are coming from. I have seen people change.”
Ankita, on being asked about her love life, retorted, “As far as love is concerned, it’s a beautiful thing. And I would like to say that I am always in love. I love my family, and, of course, my job, as it’s my dream come true. I have been graceful about my love life by not talking about it explicitly, and I want to continue doing that. It’s, after all, my personal life. But I will say that I am the kind of person who lives in the now. I don’t live in the past. My life currently is in a very happy space, and I am doing what I wanted to, which is movies. So, I have no complaints.”
Well, we wish Ankita all the success.
