Actor Ankita Lokhande, who became a household name after starring in the television show Pavitra Rishta, recently revealed that due to the demanding schedule of the serial at the time, she once worked continuously for 148 hours. Ankita said that she stayed on the set for three months. Pavitra Rishta also starred late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
In an interview with TV Times, “I have never worked as hard in my life as I did for Pavitra Rishta. I did not go home for three months, I used to shoot there day and night. And this is a true story, there was a gents bathroom and I used to take bath there. They had kept the bathroom empty for me. My hairdresser would press my clothes. So many times, we didn’t even have fresh undergarments. So we would wash the ones we had and iron them.”

She continued, “But it was worth it. Not 30 hours, but I have constantly worked on the sets of Pavitra Rishta for 148 hours. So that has been my record timing.”
Ankita continued, “So it feels good, I have a story to tell people that I have done hard work. My mom also stayed there with me. We used to get time but it was like you can sleep and wake up on the sets, but they did not allow me to go home because I had back-to-back scenes. And in television, women used to run the show and I was in every scene.”
Sushant and Ankita became household names after Pavitra Rishta. The show recently clocked 14 years.
