Ankita Lokhande CLARIFIES on early morning date with Pavitra Rishta co-star Karan Mehra!

The lady opens up on the rendezvous with a close friend

When a woman is single and sexy, the whole world is in a hurry to link her up! Ankita Lokhande, whose split with Sushant Singh Rajput was a subject of much media discussion, made her way in the news again for seeing someone. The lady met up with good friend and Pavitra Rishta co-star Karan Mehra early morning a few days before. A source told MiD Day, “Karan was spotted at Veera Desai Road in Andheri at about 8 am on Monday. He was talking on the phone. A few passersby were wondering why he was hanging around despite being recognised. It did not take long for them to realise that he was waiting for someone.”

It seems that onlookers there saw a auto-rickshaw halting and Ankita stepping off from the vehicle. The guy paid the fare and the duo walked rapidly towards Empire building, where Karan has his apartment. The source also told the tabloid, “People were taken aback to see Ankita alight from the rickshaw. It looked like she had walked straight out of bed since what she was wearing resembled nightwear.”

The actor has confessed that he only took up the part of Naren in Pavitra Rishta as his family loved the soap and he loved how Ankita played the role of Archana Deshmukh. The two were buddies onset too.  Since then, the comfort level between them had often forced people to speculate if they were more than friends.

Karan got married in 2009 with stylist Devika Mehta who is a pal of Ekta Kapoor. Ankita clarified to the tabloid, “Karan is my best friend and so is his wife. He stays in that building, so he must have been hanging around there. Why would I go to meet him early in the morning? I have a car; why would I travel by rickshaw? I prefer to stay away from the limelight. I am scared to go out since I don’t know what people will say. I don’t like to talk about my personal life.”
