Reports say Sanjay Leela Bhansali has signed up Ankita Lokhande for his next project Padmavati.

Seems like TV star Ankita Lokhande has moved on in life after her split with Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput recently, and on to bigger things now. News has it that she has landed a plum project in B’town, that too with Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

Reports on Friday claimed that Ankita has bagged her first Bollywood project Bhansali’s Padmavati. While Deepika Padukone is finalised to play the lead role in the period drama, it seems Lokhande, too, is playing a pivotal role in the film.

When asked about the project at the recently concluded IIFA awards, NDTV quoted Ankita as saying, “Why don’t you ask Sanjay sir? He is here. He will be able to tell you. I think IIFA was a good platform to announce it. But then I don’t know. I can’t say anything at the moment. It is up to Sanjay to confirm.”

Padmavati is based on Chittor’s queen who performed Jauhar to evade capture by Alauddin Khilji.

Hindustan Times could not independently verify the report.
