She first became a popular face when she stepped onto your television sets as a young Archana on one of Zee TV's most popular shows, Pavitra Rishta. Now, as the show takes a twenty year leap forward, Ankita Lokhande who plays the character of Archana is all set to play a double role. While the actress will continue to play the role of Archana that made her a household name, she will now also play the role of Ankita, Archana's 19 year old grand-daughter.

Though the older, mature Archana continues to wear rich and intricately designed sarees, the young Ankita is seen in bright, youthful colors that reflect her age and sense of style. Though she appears to be mature and calm on the outside, her wardrobe shows viewers the bright, young girl who continues to exist within her despite all the hurdles that life has thrown her way.

Ankita is a 19 year old girl who has had to grow up overnight in order to take care of her four siblings and drunken father when her mother left the family to marry a rich man. Though she is a young girl with modern beliefs, she has a very traditional and rooted value system.

"I have been very fortunate to have got the opportunity to play the role of Archana who has endeared herself to the viewers over the years. I am grateful to Ekta ma'am and Zee TV for having faith in my ability and casting me in such a strong role at the very start of my career. Yes, it will take me some time to adjust to stepping in and out of the characters of Archana and Ankita within the same day, but I think practice will make that perfect too. As I step into this new and exciting role, I hope that viewers continue to show me the same love and support that they have given me as Archana. Yes, it feels surreal to be playing the role of my own namesake. Especially since the character is so close to who I am off screen as well," says Ankita on her new role.

Watch Manav, Archana and their extended family on Pavitra Rishta, every Monday to Friday at 9 PM only on Zee TV.
