@TB and Sid Do you watch full episodes of JDJ? If you do, can you tell me how Ankita behaves on the show? Does she really get upset when she does not get as much marks as Sushant? Or doesn't she get along with other contestants? I am asking the same question to multiple people, just to get an idea about why so many people suddenly hate her.
I only watched Sushita performance on 7th feb, rapidfire round (loved it !)and proposal on 14th. So I have absolutely no idea.
Yes I've watched almost all the episodes. I may have skipped one where neither Sushant nor Ankita performed.
For me Ankita's behavior is nothing out of the ordinary, but I guess that's because I've watched her so much and know that most of what she does is for fun. Some seem to get a childish impression, but most adults find her sweet and can tell that she means for any "childish" or "immature" actions to be taken lightly. She's just herself, she doesn't pretend to be perfect bahu Archana nor does she give fake smiles all the time. I don't know why people around IF find her to be actually childish, and I am baffled that people hate her for being apparently "arrogant" or "negative".
Ankita really doesn't do much, in the hawa mahal she just sits with Sushant in that corner most of the time and doesn't seem to be getting into the business of others aside from light chatting with people around her. She usually only talks about Sushant when asked, otherwise she stays sitting in her spot quietly. Sometimes she can be seen interacting with Chang, Shampa, and Mona, whether it's chatting in the hawa mahal or dancing with them after the show is over.
Here are some instances of interaction that I remember which may lead to the opinion formed of her:
Around Sushant's chhau performance she said she wants to get 30 marks at some point, and noted that she was complaining to Sushant that why does he get a 30 and she doesn't. Then Sushant jokingly apologized for getting a 30.
But the thing to be noted is that both of them were laughing and it was clear that they weren't serious. Also, after Sushant's performance she was constantly hugging him and looked overjoyed at his scores.
During the teen ka tadka round when they were having Sushant fake-flirt with Rashmi, she was giving shocked and miffed expressions and then scooted closer to Nandish pretending to ignore Sushant and Rashmi. Then in the hawa mahal Sushant apologized for it all and told Ankita he got paid a lot for it. But with the way they both laughed after that it was clear that the flirting drama was scripted. Again after Sushant's scores Ankita looked happy, not resentful at all. In the same episode she said something to Salman about how if he scores 30 then the rest of their chances are gone, but it was done laughingly.
In the street dance round her performance started as a "challenge" to Sushant and his scores, and later when Malaika told her she did better than Sushant she was excited. But it should be noticed that Sushant was laughing with the whole challenge and was cheering for Ankita, making it clear again that she's really not giving him problems about scores except as a joke or for fun.
When the wild card round came down to her and Yaana, she laughingly said "I feel I'm the best", and that seemed to set off a lot of the attitude problem and arrogance accusations. I really don't get why though, she was clearly laughing when she said it and others laughed too. I also don't get what's wrong in feeling the best, aren't they all there to win?
Overall, I can't tell of any instances where I truly felt like she was having issues with other contestants or showing attitude or arrogance. She seems happy with her scores and is always cheering for Sushant. I don't know where people are building their opinons of her from. I haven't seen her disrespect anyone, and her playful "dominating" and hitting is only done to Nishant and Sushant, nobody else except once to Chang and light pat to Mahi after the mimicry segment.
