Tell us one incident with the celebrity that happened on sets which you would remember for ages?
Ankita: Definitely it has to be Govinda, which was a great moment for me. When we danced together, he said, “Tumme bahut masti hai, this will only take you high in life”.
Another incident was when I missed the beat and wordings, but got appreciated by Anil Kapoor. He said he too has had the same experience, but the biggest plus in me is that I continued with my performance. This really built up my confidence, his comments where really valuable.
How has Indian Idol platform been beneficial in your career?
Ankita: Yes, I came here when I was in just my 12th standard. This stage has given me a lot. My singing career has got a big lift because of this platform. Now, it is my turn to work hard and give myself a bright future.
Were you a performer before or you learnt it after coming to Indian Idol?
Ankita: No, I have been like this for long.
You have been in Bottom 3 for the past 2 weeks, what do you think is your chance of becoming Indian Idol?
Ankita: Yes, still I am here, I would give myself 100% chance of making it big here. Once I am out, I will probably take another name.
Do you want to become a rock star or a playback singer?
Ankita: Yes, pop stars like Shakira and Britney Spears have made it big in India too. I want to follow their path. I know that I need to really work hard on my singing skills, and I am surely doing it. I know that I perform well and that is my big plus. There are others here who sing better, but they have not got what I have got. Not all can perform great! I know that if I work hard on my singing, then I am right there to give a tough fight. I am certainly working hard. I want to be a face in the crowd.
If you get an opportunity to bring back one contestant eliminated - who would it be?
Ankita: It has to be Parleen, then! We have been friends right from the Theatre Round and it is sad that he is not there today.
You see a very hot guy. On the spur of the moment you decide to propose to him/her, what song would you sing to tell them your dil ka haal?
Ankita: I would sing, “Aap Jaisa Koi Mere Zindagi Main Aaye”….
Wishing the Spunky and Hot Ankita All the Very Best for her future!
