Almost every TV actor uses television as a stepping stone to movies, but very few actually manage to make that leap
We all remember the famous Pavitra Rishta jodi – Ankita Lokhande and Sushant Singh Rajput, who made their debut and scaled great heights with the popular Zee TV show. Eventually, Sushant soared to the horizon after the success of his first film, Kai Po Che!, like her beau, Ankita too was nurturing a similar dream, when Farah Khan approached her for the audition of Happy New Year.
However, as we all know – things did not pan out as expected because Deepika Padukone bagged her role in the film. Needless to mention, Ms Lokhande’s dream was shattered, and the channel breathed a sigh of relief. After all, they were scared that Pavitra Rishta would fall apart without their Archana.
Initially we didn’t hear a peep from the actor’s mouth, but in a recent interview Ankita said that she thinks people have a prejudice against TV actors. It’s a widely assumed fact, that Bollywood thinks very little of television actors. But our argument is – if that was the case, would actors like Shahrukh Khan, Vidya Balan, Ayushmaan Khurrana and Prachi Desai have made it anywhere in the B-town?
Wethinks Ms Lokhande is behaving like the fox who calls the grapes sour when he couldn’t have them. What do you think BollywoodLifers?
