New Delhi: Popular television actress and Bigg Boss 17 contestant Ankita Lokhande has been candid about her difficult time on the programme with her husband Vicky Jain. The famous actress from Pavitra Rishta revealed in a recent interview that she finds viewing the show right now to be “traumatic.” The actor also disclosed that she struggled with anxiety after leaving the Bigg Boss house and that she is working on getting better.
Ankita Lokhande On Facing Anxiety Issues
Ankita talked about how she feels when others make comments about her relationship with Vicky in an interview with Siddharth Kannan. Ankita said, “It still hurts. I am not recovering from it, and it’s not because of anybody else, it’s because of us. I saw some of my scenes and I was just telling Vicky yesterday that you know we have fun and we say things like, ‘I will hit you’ in jest.”
She further continued, “But on the TV, it looked so exaggerated. Now when I see it, it impacts me so much that I do not like it because we talk to each other as friends, so it feels okay. But it’s come with such force on TV that it’s traumatic, it’s not healthy to watch, it’s not nice to watch. Whatever we did, we did it ourselves, no one else was there, we were fighting there, but somewhere there’s a lot of love in that fight too.”
Ankita On Her Bond With Kangana Ranaut
Ankita also opened up about her bond with Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut and how the Manikarnika star was worried about Ankita after watching the Salman Khan-hosted reality show.
Talking about Kangana, Ankita said, “Actually, I and Kangana never thought that we would become so close but when we met on the sets of Manikarnika, when Kangana actually started directing me, that made our foundation stronger.”
Ankita added, “There is nothing special about Kangana and my story, but every time we meet, she says ‘Ankita is like me. She is crazy, very crazy.’ I think Kangana’s vibe and mine match perfectly.”
The Pavitra Rishta actress also revealed that Kangana used to be in constant touch with her mother while she was inside the Bigg Boss 17 house.
The Bigg Boss 17 finalist shared, “I want to say this, mai Bigg Boss me thi, tab bhi Kangana me meri mumma se baat ki. And jo bhi meri life me chal raha tha, she was very worried about everything.”
