‘I don’t need a man to reach somewhere in life’: Ankita Lokhande

Its been 2 years television’s most loved couple Ankita Lokhande and Sushnat Singh Rajput broke up. Post that Ankita went through a drastic transformation. Now she is all set for a big Bollywood debut with Kangana Ranaut-starrer, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi where she will be seen playing a pivotal role in the film. Recently a leading daily got in touch with Ankita and asked her how her priorities changed over the years. Answering to the question, Ankita stated that-

“Back then, I was trying to be a homemaker and doing a very big job”.

Further on being asked that whether her work was affected because of the breakup, actress said that she knew love and work are two separate things but she failed to balance it.

“Honestly, I have always been content. When I was working, I was satisfied; when I wasn’t, I was still happy. I’m okay with whatever I do. Aisa kabhi nahin tha ki mujhe yeh chahiye ya woh chahiye. I decided to take a break because I was happy with that then. It was not just for myself. I guess, the Universe wanted me to get back professionally, which is why I’m here now. I won’t say the break-up affected my profession, though. Love and work are two separate things. You need to balance them and I’ll say I wasn’t able to do that”.

Post breakup actress learnt that no matter what happens in life, she’ll never stop loving herself.

“I have learnt to love myself. I had forgotten to do that. Loving yourself helps because if you don’t respect your own feelings, how do you expect others to do that? Also, earlier, I didn’t know how to balance things. Today, I know how to do that. Mujhe pata hai kahaan kise importance deni hai. Lekin sabse zyada importance mujhe apne aap ko deni hai”.
On asking that now is there any place for relationship in her life, ANkita Lokhande said that she is waiting for her prince charming.

“Of course, there is! (smiles) I’m still waiting for my prince charming (laughs). But I’m not consciously looking for a man. I’m done with that! I don’t need a man to reach somewhere in life. I’d rather have awards”.

Must say her words are really inspiring. All the best Ankita for  Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. Stay tuned with us for more  Bollywood news and updates.
