New Delhi: Ankita Lokhande, renowned for her work in both television and films, opened up about a distressing encounter related to casting in an interview with Hauterrfly. Recalling the incident, Ankita shared her experience when approached for a role in a southern film. She mentioned being informed that securing the role required engaging in inappropriate favors with the producer. Ankita expressed her initial excitement at the opportunity, but also harbored doubts about the ease of the offer.

Detailing the encounter further, Ankita described being asked to meet alone with the producer while her coordinator was instructed to wait outside. It was during this meeting that she was bluntly told she would have to compromise, implying she would need to engage in inappropriate activities with the producer. Ankita, then just 19 years old and aspiring to be an actress, was taken aback by the proposition but swiftly declined, asserting her principles and walking away from the situation.

More recently, Ankita and her husband Vicky Jain made an appearance as guests on the reality dance show Dance Deewane. Ankita had the privilege to perform alongside Madhuri Dixit, an experience she cherished deeply. Reflecting on the moment, Ankita expressed gratitude towards Madhuri for her inspiration and grace, highlighting the profound impact of true artistry.

In their journey, Ankita and Vicky Jain participated in Bigg Boss 17, where Ankita achieved a position among the top four contenders, while Vicky faced eviction just before the finale. Ankita ventured into Bollywood in 2019 with her role in “Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi” and later appeared in “Baaghi 3” alongside Tiger Shroff. Her rise to fame began with her role in the popular daily soap “Pavitra Rishta” alongside the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
