Something brewing between Ankita Lokhande and Karan Mehra?

Television actress Ankita Lokhande, who broke up with long-time boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput a few months back, seems to have found solace in her ‘Pavitra Rishta’ co-star Karan Mehra. Karan played the role of Naren on the popular soap.

Recently, Ankita and Karan grabbed attention after they were spotted together early in the morning, according to a Mid-day.

"Karan was spotted at Veera Desai Road in Andheri at about 8 am on Monday. He was talking on the phone. A few passers-by were wondering why he was hanging around despite being recognised. It did not take long for them to realise that he was waiting for someone," the popular tabloid quoted a source as saying.

Soon, Ankita arrived in an auto-rickshaw and the duo quickly headed to Empire building in the vicinity where Karan resides. The actress seemed to have hurried out of bed as it looked like she was wearing her nightdress, the source further stated.

Karan is married to stylist Devika Mehta who is said to be close to Ekta Kapoor and had worked with her production house. He also gets along very well with Ankita. In fact, he once stated that he took up ‘Pavitra Rishta’ as his granny was really fond of the show as well as Ankita and her character in it. The two actors were also part of the same team in Box Cricket League in 2014.

When Ankita was asked about being spotted with Karan, she said, “Karan is my best friend and so is his wife. He stays in that building, so he must have been hanging around there. Why would I go to meet him early in the morning? I have a car; why would I travel by rickshaw? I prefer to stay away from the limelight. I am scared to go out since I don’t know what people will say. I don’t like to talk about my personal life."
