Ankita Lokhande: It’s unfortunate that Happy New Year didn’t happen!

Ms Lokhande has finally broken her silence on Farah Khan’s Happy New Year. Read on to know how she feels about losing out on such a big opportunity…

Anikita Lokhande, who shot to fame with popular daily soap Pavitra Rishta, was the original choice for Farah Khan’s Happy New Year which stars Shahrukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan and Boman Irani. But sadly the film went to Deepika Padukone and the telly actor’s dream to make a dhamaakedar debut in Bollywood was shattered. And while reports were doing the rounds that Ankita wasn’t roped in by Farah coz of her high-handed behavior, Sushant Singh Rajput’s ladylove has a different story to present. In a recent interview, the Pavitra Rishta actor said, “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. I was working on TV, and if I was considered for it is a big thing.”

While it’s hard to figure out why Ankita lost the plum project to Dippy, all we can say is – better luck next time missy!
