‘Manikarnika’ Star Ankita Lokhande Spreads Joy in Old-Age Home

Pavitra Rishta star Ankita Lokhande is ready to make her big Bollywood debut this year with Manikarnika, which stars Kangana Ranaut in the lead role. Ankita is busy shooting for the film in which she plays a warrior and Lakshmibai’s trusted companion, Jhalkari Bai.

Ankita rang in the new year by spreading some joy at the Jeevan Asha old-age home in Veera Desai, Mumbai. She donated food, blankets and clothes and spent quality time with the residents as well.

Ankita spends time with a resident. 
“I come here every year and this time I wanted to create awareness about how important our parents and elders are and all they need from us is love. I always wanted to open an old-age home but I think we, the youth should be responsible enough to take care of our parents and make a point that there are no such places in future. I adore them truly and they are very close to my heart”.
