Sushant’s Girl to Star Opposite King Khan

Sushant Singh Rajput’s girlfriend Ankita Lokhande might as well make a dream debut in Bollywood opposite Shah Rukh Khan. It has been reported that Ankita has been signed for Farah Khan’s next movie Happy New Year starring the Badshah of Bollywood.

To create an impact in the industry, one has to play his/her cards well. Deepika Padukone had made her debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in the film Om Shanti Om. Since then, there has been no looking back. A debut of that kind has catapulted her into the league of top actresses in India. She is now being considered for the numero uno position in Bollywood with no real competition in the horizon.

Her last movie Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani raked in over 100 crores at the box office establishing her as one of the formidable forces in the industry. All this might sound dreamy but this is what happens when you star opposite a Khan in your first movie. Take for example, Sonakshi Sinha who debuted opposite Salman Khan in the movie Dabangg. She has consistently been signed for big budget movies ever since and has delivered without fail.

Meanwhile Sushant Singh Rajput has been busy sorting out his own life in Bollywood. The Delhi College of Engineering dropout used to be a sensation on the small screen till he forayed into Bollywood with Abhishek Kapoor’s adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s bestselling novel – The Three Mistakes Of My Life. He is currently basking in the glory of the success of his debut Bollywood movie – Kai Po Che!. The movie received critical acclaim as well as commercial success. However Sushant has not rushed into a signing spree. He has been rather selective and prudent in his choice of movies. His next will be Shudhdh Desi Romance opposite Parineeti Chopra and Vaani Kapoor. He will also feature in a supporting yet pivotal role in Rajkumar Hirani’s PK, starring Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma.

Shah Rukh Khan had caught a glimpse of Ankita at the recently concluded IIFA ceremony at Macau. Ankita, who did mostly television series till now caught the attention of the superstar. He felt that she fits the bill for the actress in the Farah Khan movie. He immediately drew Farah’s attention to his observation. Ankita met Farah and the deal was finalized. Ankita has profoundly thanked Shah Rukh for helping her bag this dream role.
