Not every television actor’s dream of making it big in the showbiz comes true but Ankita Lokhande’s dream has come true. Why? Because yesterday, on the eve of Ankita’s birthday, the actress was given the best birthday gift and that being, trailer launch of her debut film- Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. That’s right! Yesterday, the makers of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi dropped the trailer of the film online and Twitterverse has been loving it. Ever since it was announced that Ankita is going to mark her Bollywood debut with Manikarnika, all her zillion fans were thrilled and couldn’t wait to see Ankita sizzle on the 70mm screen. In the film, Ankita plays an integral character and she will be seen essaying the role of Jhalkari Bai- a woman soldier in Rani Laxmibai’s army, who eventually rose to the position of an advisor to the Queen.

Today i.e. December 19, 2018, Ankita Lokhande celebrates her 34th birthday and on the occasion of her birthday, we trace her journey from television to films. Ankita kick-started her career in 2006 as a participant in the reality show Idea Zee Cinestars but it was three years later, in 2009, that Ankita became a household name with Ekta Kapoor’s Pavitra Rishta. While Pavitra Rishta continued for over six years, Ankita entertained and wowed the audiences with her role of Archana in the show. After the daily soap, Ankita forayed into the world of dancing by participating in the dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Season 4 (2011) and the same year, Ankita tickled our comic bones by participating in another reality show titled Comedy Circus along with Kapil Sharma.

Yesterday, Ankita celebrated her birthday with Kangana Ranaut and her friends from the telly world and as always, Ankita looked stunning in a red sequin short dress.  

Pavitra Rishta

Ankita Lokhande became a household name with the serial Pavitra Rishta and while Ankita’s chemistry with then-boyfriend and co-actor Sushant Singh Rajput was loved by all, it was her role as Archana that won our hearts.

It was for the first time that her fans saw the actress participate in a reality dance show but with just few weeks into the show, Ankita proved to the world that besides acting, dancing is her forte too.

Comedy Circus

While filming for Pavitra Rishta, Ankita forayed into the world of comedy and was seen with Kapil Sharma as a participant in Comedy Circus. While juggling between daily soaps, and reality shows, Ankita Lokhande, reportedly was offered a part in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat, however, she opted out of the film as she felt she wasn’t ready for a film debut. But all’s well that ends well and after a hiatus of four years, Ankita is all set to make her Bollywood debut in the upcoming epic film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi.
