Former television star Ankita Lokhande has for the first time spoken about life after her split from fellow actor Sushant Singh Rajput two and a half years ago.

The actress who makes her debut in Bollywood with ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’, told DNA India, “Back then, I was trying to be a homemaker and doing a very big job. When I was working, I was satisfied; when I wasn’t, I was still happy. I’m okay with whatever I do. Aisa kabhi nahin tha ki mujhe yeh chahiye ya woh chahiye. I decided to take a break because I was happy with that then. It was not just for myself. I guess, the Universe wanted me to get back professionally, which is why I’m here now. I won’t say the break-up affected my profession, though. Love and work are two separate things. You need to balance them and I’ll say I wasn’t able to do that.”

Asked if she still had time for relationships, she said, “Of course, there is! (smiles) I’m still waiting for my prince charming (laughs). But I’m not consciously looking for a man. I’m done with that! I don’t need a man to reach somewhere in life. I’d rather have awards.”
