Ankita Lokhande Slammed For Not Mentioning Sushant On 14 Yrs Of Pavitra Rishta

Ankita Lokhande celebrated 14 years of Pavitra Rishta in her latest Instagram post. However, fans seem upset.

Television actress Ankita Lokhande is facing heat from netizens on her latest Instagram post. Ankita took to her social media today to celebrate 14 years of her hit daily soap Pavitra Rishta. The actress rose to fame with the role of Archana in Ekta Kapoor’s show that began airing in 2009 on Zee TV. Ankita starred opposite Sushant Singh Rajput who played the role of Manav. While working together, the duo fell in love and started dating each other. They were in a relationship for 6 years before they parted ways in 2016.

While celebrating 14 years of Pavitra Rishta, Ankita thanked Ekta Kapoor and the audience in her post. She even shared a reel of herself as Archana from the show. Though her Insta post was purely nostalgic for the fans, some people expressed displeasure and slammed Ankita for not mentioning Sushant in her post, nor sharing any glimpse of him in the reel.

Ankita wrote in her Instagram post, “14 years of Pavitra rishta and still feels so fresh and connected with my first ever baby.. Thanku god for everything!! And thanks you so much @ektarkapoor for always having that faith in me that I could be your archu and Thanku for giving me the new identity as Archana because the people who loved me during the show when they see or meet me now also ,the first name which comes in there mind is archu and I love it so much.. Thanku so much everyone around who has loved and watched this beautiful show called pavitra rishta with all there heart and soul .. I’m grateful forever.”

An angry Internet user wrote, “Jab manav (SUSHANT) ko show nahi karna hai toh toh pavitra ristha ka post b nahi dena tha kyounki yeh show manav k bina ZERO hai …sorry but yeh sahi baat hai.”

A similar comment reads, “Ek Sushant Singh ka bhe photo share kar deti.”

Another user wrote, “sushant ko bhul gyi.. ab wo nhi to uska pic bhi nhi dala.. waise yahi wo black month hai jisane hamre sushant ko hamse chhin liye.. 14 june.”

Someone commented, “Not a single mention or even a photo of Sushant singh rajput sir. This was not expected fron you ankita mam -The show was equally loved for sushant sir’s innocent acting as well.”

In another Instagram post, Archana shared some memories of the show and wrote the lyrics of the title track in her caption. Archana penned, “Aasman main jab tak sitare rahenge hum ek dusre ke sahare rahenge,nazdikiyan ya ho duriyaan bas pyaar hi rahega darmiyan. Pavitra rishta tere mere mann ka. Sharing some beautiful memories of archana (archu).”

Ankita Lokhande is now married to Mumbai-based businessman Vicky Jain.
