Ankita Lokhande is one of the popular Television actors. She will soon make her Bollywood debut with Kangana Ranaut's Manikarnika - The Queen of Jhansi film. Ankita plays the role of Jhalkari Bai in it.
Today, the actor was snapped in the city. She was all smiles for the cameras and looked classy in a light blue shirt and dark blue jeans.
Ankita's character is important in the film as Jhalkari Bai was the one who used to disguise and shield Rani Laxmi Bai. Her uncanny resemblance to Rani Laxmibai helped her go in disguise and protect her Queen whenever required.
In a recent interview, Ankita got candid about her role in Manikarnika.
Talking about her role, Ankita stated, "I'd never heard of her before, not many have, but Jhalkaribai was one of the greatest heroes of our proud history. I'm honoured that I'll be telling her story to the world, fighting alongside Kangana's Rani Laxmibai."

Recently at an event when Ankita was asked about co-star Kangana Ranaut, she stated, "She’s a professional on the sets. And you can only see Rani Laxmibai on the sets."
Ankita further said, "Kangana is the hero of the film, and she’s launching me as the heroine of this film. I’m assuming I’m the heroine now! It’s not tough to launch someone, but it’s important to give the right platform, which I’ve got. I’m playing the role of Jhalkaribai in the film, and it’s a fabulous part. I’m working very hard for my role."
