Ankita Lokhande to quit 'Pavitra Rishta'?

ZEE TV’s flagship show ‘Pavitra Rishta’ could be heading to troubled waters if rumours of actress Ankita Lokhande quitting are true.

Lokhande who plays Archana on the hit show has informed producers of her intentions to leave the show and has given around three months to pave her exit. According to Times Of India, the story will soon see a major turn where the show will take a seven months generation leap and Archana’s (Ankita Lokhande) daughter Ovi (Shruti Kanwar) will deliver a baby.

The paper reports that Lokhande is leaving because of the generation leap storyline as she is not comfortable playing a grandmother. Archana who is currently playing a mother of four grownup kids is not happy with the new storyline.

She had expressed her desire to leave the show when the original Manav, played by Sushant Singh Rajput left last year.
