She entered into the TV space as the sweet, innocent and docile girl,
Archana in the long running show, 'Pavitra Rishta'. And she managed to win over
a million hearts for the next five years and on...
However, her on-screen avatar was almost a total antithesis of herself,
Wondering, who is this..? Obviously,
It is none other than the confident, fiery and beautiful, Ankita Lokhande..
Being off the tube for a long time now, Ankita has been in the news
more recently courtesy rumours surrounding her supposed split with long-time
beau, Sushant Singh Rajput and her apparent tiff with Ekta Kapoor..
Amidst all these rumours, the fans of Ankita have been desperately
wanting her to make her comeback to fiction space. And there have been several
Here is the LIST of shows Ankita was offered, however, sadly, she
Yeh Hai Mohabbatein
The actress was offered a cameo role in the form of Shanaya in the
popular show, 'Yeh Hai Mohabbatein'. However, after she refused to be a part of
it, the role was played Divyanka Tripathi herself. Also, this wouldn't have
been the first time Ankita would have done a cameo role for Ekta Kapoor where she
has done the same previously in the show, 'Kuch Toh Hai Tere Mere Darmiyaan'.
Itna Karo Na Mujhe Pyar
She was also offered the hyped show, 'Itna Karo Na Mujhe Pyaar'
opposite Ronit Roy. However, her refusal was the comeback moment for actress
Pallavi Kulkarni. This NO was nothing else but Ankita, standing by her point
that apparently she doesn't want to do motherly roles anymore.
Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat
Very few are aware about this one. The beautiful belle was offered a
role in the mythological drama, 'Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat'. Well, to the fans
it would have been an absolute treat watching their favourite actress in a
completely new avatar after having seen the typical bahu in her previous show.Â
Alas! Ankita did not want to be a part of this one too..
Just when we have started discussing about how amazing would Ankita
have been in a mythological show, I list down the FIVE shows Ankita would have
been a perfect fit for..
Pyar Ko Ho Jaane Do
Mona Singh did an amazing job as Preet, however, we surely feel, Ankita
would also have been an apt fit for Mona's role. Carrying similar traits from
the role of Archana which included 'sacrifice' as a key one, this role of Preet
was the non-cliched bahu which holds the family together.
Siya Ke Ram
As we just said, a mythological role would have been a perfect change
for Ankita and what better than the show, 'Siya Ke Ram'. The best part about
the role was that in spite of being the Ramayan saga which we have seen over a
thousand times, this one is from Sita's perspective. And given Ankita's acting
talent, she would have surely pulled it off.
An almost perfect role for Ankita which would have coped with her 'no motherly'
roles criteria too, the role of Pragya would have been an amazing one for
Ankita. Yeah, she may have been some similar stuff from her Pavitra Rishta
days, but playing a 'young' bahu which sported a nerdy look in the initial days
would have been a good shift.
Kasam Tere Pyaar Ki
The show is less than a month old, but the lead characters of Tanu and
Rishi have been crystalized with the time passing by. And Ankita would have
been an amazing Tanu to say the least..Â
Family Values-check, unconditional love-check and of course, we also think, she
would have made an amazing on-screen pair with Ssharad Malhotra..!
This show is so difficult to be off the lists these days. But that
isn't the only reason, it is a part of this list today. We are sure that barely
anyone would have thought to see their favourite Mouni Roy playing the
unthinkable 'Naagin'. Mouni has excelled as the Naagin, however, we think Ankita
would also have been a great Naagin too. Hisss!!!
There have been mixed news when it comes to the break-up rumours about
Ankita and Sushant Singh Rajput, where, fortunately Ankita has denied the same
But, the fans of Ankita are surely missing her immensely and would love
to see her back on-screen..! Lets hope, that happens sooner rather than
