'I'm only concentrating on the present': Ankita on her ex-boyfriend Sushant
Ankita Lokhande and Sushant Singh Rajput started their career together with the popular TV serial ‘Pavitra Rishta’ in 2009 and fell in love with each other.
Eight years and a breakup letter, Sushant has box-office success, nominations for best actor awards for ‘M. S. Dhoni: The Untold Story’ and numerous films in his kitty, while Ankita has not featured in showbiz since the show that brought them together went off air in 2014.
Refusal of A-list actresses to work with Sanjay Dutt got Ankita her B'town debut?
Ankita is all set to change that now as she will be arriving at a comeback, not on Television, but instead making her Bollywood debut with the Kangana Ranaut-starrier ‘Manikarnika.’
The actress, however, denied, in her recent interview, that her sabbatical had got anything to do with her wedding plans with Sushant when they were together.
"I don't recognize how these tales about me, aren't required to work got around. After six years of Pavitra Rishta, I just wanted a break and come back as a different Ankita. And I accept," Anikta added. Recently, reports of Ankita and Sushant meeting over a coffee date had sent rumor mills buzzing about their reconciliation, with the latter refuting them.

The actress had not responded then and when asked if she was friends with Sushant, she stated, “No.”
She added, "I'm not thinking of the past or the future right now, I'm only concentrating on the present.
She continued, “I own my own place, a car I bought with my own money and a beautiful, moving picture I can't wait to get going. I get gooseflesh at the idea of finding out myself on the large screen."
