She was treated for appendicitis and has now been advised bed rest for 10 days. Since Ankita plays a double role in her show, makers are now in the process of introducing an alternative track.
Considering the fact that Ganesh Chaturthi has always been celebrated in a big way in the long-running show, the maker had to do away with the original story line planned, and add new drama to incorporate the absence of Ankita.
Well, now the track will see the return of Raunak (Ranjeet Singh) into the thick of things. He will return to avenge Ankita (Ankita Lokhande) for putting him in jail.
So what will Raunak do? On the festive occasion of Ganpati, when Manav (Hiten Tejwani) and the entire family would be about to bring the Bappa idol home, Raunak would kidnap Ankita and put her to a lot of torture.
As per the buzz, the story line has to undergo a lot of changes since Ankita will not be available for the next 10 days. Hence the glam manner in which the festival is usually celebrated on the show might not be seen this time around. However, we are still working on the track changes. As of now, we will get Raunak back and he will kidnap Ankita during the festive occasion. Since Ankita cannot be present to even shoot the kidnap sequence, we will have to subjectively indicate everything in the script.
Zee TV’s Pavitra Rishta recently taken a five years leap. With the story moving forward, viewers have seen Ankita (Ankita Lokhande) living a lonely life in Banaras, while Naren (Karan Mehra) has been concentrating on his daughter Aashi (Angel).
