Ankita Lokhande to debut in Bollywood with Sanjay Dutt’s ‘Malang’?


Sushant Singh Rajput’s ex-girlfriend Ankita Lokhande has been on a break from acting since her popular television soap ‘Pavitra Rishta’ went off-air in 2014. For some time now, Ankita has been trying to gain an entry into Bollywood and finally her efforts seem to have borne fruit.

Reports suggest that Ankita will make her Bollywood debut in Sanjay Dutt starrer film ‘Malang’. Sanjay Dutt has wrapped up his comeback film ‘Bhoomi’, directed by Omung Kumar, and has already signed the director’s next production ‘Malang’, which will be directed by newcomer Aarambhh Singh.

‘Malang’ is said to be a romantic thriller set in Varanasi. Ankita will be seen in the role of a police officer. Omung Kumar, Bhushan Kumar and Sandeep Singh will be co-producing the film.     

A Mid-day report quoting a well-placed industry source as saying, “It appears her (Ankita) long wait to break into Bollywood has now ended. She has been signed for Sanjay Dutt’s next, ‘Malang’ and will be seen playing a cop.”

Ankita, the former girlfriend of Sushant Singh Rajput, has been previously in talks for films like Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Happy New Year’ and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’, but things couldn’t materialise.

However, the makers haven’t made an official announcement in this regard yet.
