Pavitra Rishta: Did Ankita Lokhande delay her comeback for more money?

Pavitra Rishta: Did Ankita Lokhande delay her comeback for more money?
Ekta Kapoor was adamant about retaining her pet actor as Archana on the popular soap, even though she did consider other favourite Gautami Kapoor as a suitable replacement – and things are back to what they were…
Zee TV’s long running show Pavitra Rishta constantly has actors dropping out of the daily soap. After Sushant Singh Rajput quit to join movies, his ladylove Ankita Lokhande started dropping hints about fresher pastures. A few months ago the actor made up her mind to quit, saying that she needed a break and that quitting the show was the best option.
However, Ekta managed to convince Ankita to return and asked her to take a break while they moved the character into a coma for some months. So Ankita went on a vacation with her beau and took that much needed vacation. After the break, the actor apparently told the producers that she didn’t want to come back to the show, especially since they were planning for another time leap and this one would make her a grandmother. Tch… tch…
After several discussions and negotiations, Ankita has finally given her nod to come back and will begin shooting for Pavitra Rishta from today. We wonder what suddenly changed the actor’s mind. Was it the lack of work outside the serial that gave her name and fame, or did she take it up again ‘coz Sushant would be busy with his new film commitments? Or did the makers just offer her enough of a raise in her paycheck to make it worth her while?
We thinks money talks and the producers coaxing must have shown Ankita that it was indeed an irresistible offer. If you ask us, she should have demanded better remuneration right from the start, instead of beating around the bush… no?
All said and done, we are glad the actor will be back on the scene, ‘coz we are eagerly waiting to see Manav and Archana reunite. Aren’t you?
