The famous star of Pavitra Rishta may be content doing TV, but she is also trying to foray into Bollywood, and Farah’s Happy New Year could have been her ticket to Bollywood. But things couldn’t materialize ideally.
“I was considered for this role, so it is a good thing. It is unfortunate it couldn't happen. I don't know why things did not work out. I think there is a prejudice against TV actors,” Ankita is quoted as saying.
It was even being said that Shahrukh Khan noticed Ankita Lokhande during one of the award shows and recommended her name to Farah Khan.
Currently, Ankita is playing a double role in TV show Pavitra Rishta, while her beau Sushant Singh Rajput has already struck gold with two hits under his belt.
Happy New Year went on the floors in October. It also stars Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood and Boman Irani in lead roles, alongside Shahrukh and Deepika. The film revolves around a bunch of male friends and how situation forces them to participate in a dance competition. Deepika apparently plays a dancer in the movie.
