After wrapping up Pavitra Rishta, the lead actor Ankita Lokhande has no definite future plans but says that a film with her reel and real life partner Sushant Singh Rajput would be ideal. Ankita's five-and-a-half year rishta with Pavitra Rishta has ended. And the pretty actor is now at a loose end.
There is no plan to do another serial right away. "I’ve been so pampered by Balaji Telefilms. Ekta (Kapoor) mam has spoilt me. I’ve never worked with any other television unit, and I wonder what it’d be like!"
Ankita is now looking forward to doing a film with Sushant. "I am getting good offers for daily soaps. But I’m not too sure I want to do another soap at this stage of my career. A film with Sushant would be ideal. I’ve asked him to make it happen. He will. He loves me too much to say no to anything," she said.
At the moment Ankita has a wish-list of activities she wants to take up. "I’ve never had the time to work out in a gym. So I want to take that up seriously. Then I always wanted to swim and play badminton. I’ll be doing that as well."
And what about marriage with Sushant? "There is no immediate plan, though I’ve threatened him that he better marry me next year, or I won’t marry him....But seriously, Sushant is too sweet. He keeps me really happy. I am really lucky to have him in my life. We both need one month off to get married. He is too busy to spare that kind of time."
Ankita intends to continue working after marriage. "Of course! Both Sushant and I come from families of working women. My mother has been a teacher for more than two decades. Sushant wants me to continue working after marriage. He says an idle mind is a devil’s workshop," she said.
