Ankita feels that she is very controversial. “Even when I try to do something nice, bad things are said about me. So it's ok. I am very upfront about what I feel and what I say, but I don’t know about Rhea. This is why I immediately put it out that I am not a part of any Bigg Boss this time, so please forgive me. But it's fine, they like to use my name and then do it. I have no problem,” Ankita clarifies.
She further adds, “I am not the kind of person who will give back to each and everything. I have never been that way. I remember when my break-up had happened, so many stories about me had come out.

Ankita states that even if she says nice things, people will write what they want to. “I don’t care what you write for me. I know who I meet personally, what they feel is important for me, and those genuine fans who know me in and out. I will tell you one thing when you're right you don’t have to go to people and tell them I am right. They just know it, and some people are bashing me because I am right, (and) some people are bashing me because I am just good. You can’t be good, Isiliye do Gaali. So that’s ok. That’s their life,” says Ankita.
Ankita Lokhande and Shaheer Sheikh Starrer Pavitra Rishta 2 was released today, and in an exclusive conversation with Pinkvilla, the actress revealed that it was her who suggested the idea of making the second season. “When I had met Ekta (Kapoor, producer) ma’am for the meeting she offered me something else, and it was me who said ‘ma’am can we do Pavitra Rishta please?’. She was like, ‘You want to do Pavitra Rishta?’, and was surprisingly shocked,” informs Ankita.
She further adds, “I have done films and everything, so she wasn’t that (sure), but I was like ‘ma’am yes please can we just make Pavitra Rishta?’ She immediately called everyone and said let’s fix up a meeting and do Pavitra Rishta. She definitely loves the show, and I am in love with it forever too. So she did not take much time and immediately said yes. Now we are here promoting the show.” Ankita states that she was toying with this idea for a while now.
“In fact, two years back I was talking to Vicky (Jain, boyfriend) and he was like, ‘You should do Pavitra Rishta’. I think this is my show, and I really wanted to talk about this. So when Ekta ma’am offered me something, I was like ‘ma’am please let’s do this. If anyone else would have done this show after 5-6 years, I would be very offended and jealous too,” laughs Ankita.
The actress also informs that she always wanted Shaheer to play Manav. “When I got this news that he might play (Manav), there were some other speculative names too. But I was like, ‘Oh God please let it be Shaheer only’. I did not know Shaheer that well, but there was some real, pure feeling - there was something in his eyes. You know Manav as a person is very pure, which is evident in his eyes too. Archana and Manav are characters who wouldn’t talk much, but their eyes speak a lot. Shaheer is a star, but I just felt that when he becomes Manav, he will be Manav. So I just wanted him (for the part),” she says.
Ankita further adds, “When Shaheer came onboard I knew he would give his best to it. Even when he did the first scene, I saw him and was very happy. I even told him that I can see Manav in him,” Ankita states. Pavitra Rishta 2 breaths of air on ZEE5.

I am a very private person, so I don’t invite people, ki bahut saare log aa jao. But when I am in the mood then, it's fine,” informs Ankita, adding that she is from Indore, and back home everyone has Ganpati Ji at home for 11 days.
“So there you don’t have this socializing thing. I have seen this only in Mumbai. In Indore, all of us have Ganpati Ji at home, so I don’t know this culture of inviting people. Ganpati Bappa Sabke Yahan hai, sab Ek Jaise hai,” smiles Ankita, informing them that she always opts for an eco-friendly Ganesh idol and does the Visarjan at home. Meanwhile, she is excited for the second season of Pavitra Rishta 2, which also features Shaheer Sheikh in the lead. When questioned the actress about returning with season 2 as a web series and not a TV show, here’s what she said.
“This was Ekta (Kapoor) ma’am and ZEE5’s decision, and in a way, it’s a good thing as you have the liberty to show so many things. You also have time to show it in a better way. The way this web series has been made, it's like a film. In TV what happens is that you are so quick in doing everything, that it becomes like a daily thing. But with this, I got a bound script, and I understood the character in a better way, that how Archana is this time. You get time to create something, exactly how it is in a film. You have a script, it's well written and understood, so when you go on the sets you know exactly what you are doing,” explains Ankita
