Amidst all the replacement news being speculated these days, here's one more... Ankita Lokhande who is seen in Zee TV's Pavitra Rishta is reportedly being replaced. There is a buzz that Shilpa Saklani Agnihotri is the one who will take her place. The track of Pavitra Rishta currently shows that Ankita's character is in coma.

While Ankita was not reachable, we spoke to Shilpa who was busy shooting for a kitchen appliance brand and here is what she had to say, "I can't say anything at the moment except that I am not replacing Ankita in Pavitra Rishta right now." So, do we see it happening in the near future? "Let's see... the talks are on and are kind of stuck on certain things. Everything is very 'iffy' right now."

Married to actor Apurva Agnihotri, Shilpa who was earlier seen in popular serials like Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Kkusum, Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin was out of action for the past one year. Talking about it Shilpa says, "For almost a year, I was not doing anything. I had a back injury due to which I was on bed rest for 3-4 months. Also due to slip disc I was in bad shape and in total for nine months I could not do much work and I am just starting. Now that I am fine I want to take up work."

According to our sources, Ankita wants a time off for 2-3 months and then wants to come back to the show and in the meantime they plan to get Shilpa Saklani to fill in the space... now whether it is to replace Ankita or in a fresh new role to add to the twist and keep the audience hooked is to be seen!

    i don't have anyone to replace ankita.. she is a very beautiful actress... we do always like her most. ankita = archana only. if she is replaced, then TRP will continue to go down after sushant left.
