Ankita Lokhande Responds to Shibani Dandekar's ‘2 Seconds of Fame’ Remark (View Post)

Actress Ankita Lokhande has responded to remarks by actress Shibani Dandekar, where the latter claimed that Ankita is targeting actress Rhea Chakraborty for two seconds of fame. In her response, Ankita questioned if she was being criticised because she has extensive work experience in the television world, instead of Bollywood. She asked Shibani to “stop looking down on television actors”. Sushant Singh Rajput’s Friend Kushal Zaveri Defends Ankita Lokhande, Gives a Fitting Reply to Shibani Dandekar for ‘Demeaning’ Her

“2 seconds of fame – This phrase got me thinking today. Coming from a tier 2 city and belonging to a humble background, I had no fancy education to show for myself. I entered the television industry in the year 2004 with a show called Zee Cine Star Ke Khoj. But my real journey began in 2009 with the show “PAVITRA RISHTA” which went on till 2014. I would be doing an injustice if I don’t mention that it was among one of the best shows for 6 consecutive years with the highest GEC TRP on television till date,” she began her post on Twitter. Shibani Dandekar’s Wiki Page Vandalised After Her Comments at Ankita Lokhande

The actress continued: “Fame is only a byproduct of the love and warmth that an actor receives from the masses. Along with all the viewers, I, too still feel connected to the character of ARCHANA. Both, my fate and the people have been kind enough to me shower their blessings and love upon me. The aspiration of an actor trying to portray as many different roles and characters as possible, led me to explore. Luckily, I got the opportunity to work in ‘Manikarnika’ as well as ‘Baaghi 3′.”

Ankita was responding to the words put out by Shibani after she slammed late Sushant Singh Rajput’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty for allegedly allowing late Sushant to consume drugs. Shibani had written: “Such a grotesque letter by (Ankita). This princess of patriarchy who has never dealt with her own relationship issues with Sushant, clearly she wants her two seconds of fame and has capitalised on Rhea being targeted. She has played a major role in this ‘witch-hunt’ and she needs to be called out! She also just needs to shut the hell up. Enough Ankita! No one has more hate in their heart than you.”

Ankita, who dated Sushant for about six years before calling it quits in 2016, said that she didn’t need to take a stand for a friend to get publicity. “To conclude, I have been an actor in Television & Bollywood for the past 17 years & now, when I am trying to support justice for my late friend, a view has been expressed that I am seeking JUSTICE because I need 2 seconds of fame and cheap publicity! I cannot fathom as to why any person would take such a stand,” she added.

I cannot fathom as to why any person would take such a stand. Is it because I have worked mostly on television and not in Bollywood? Is that why you would take a stand for the person with whom you have had a relationship for almost a decade? Stop looking down on we television actors, if that was your reason for describing my words as ‘GROTESQUE’ . It takes an equal amount of hard work and dedication for the actors in the television industry as it would take in Bollywood. I am proud to be a television actor. And if not for anything, I shall always raise my voice for the people I love and care about. #proudtobeatelevisionactor #WarriorsRoar4SSR #justiceforsushant

It is reported now that RK might be roped in for a 10-part assassin series that will stream on Disney+ Hotstar. The makers have him as the lead in the series which will also be his debut in OTT but he is yet to give a green signal.

A source close to the development told MidDay, “The discussions began only a few weeks ago. Only if RK gives his nod, the team will begin the hunt for a director. The 10-part series has been envisioned on a grand scale and will be shot across multiple countries. The show is not likely to go on floors soon as the multi-country shoot will be hard to pull off amid the current restrictions. Also, Ranbir Kapoor has allotted his dates to his next with Shraddha Kapoor that rolls in November.” Apart from these two projects mentioned here, he will be seen in Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra starring Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan.
