The once,“TV Queen”,Ankita Lokhande is gearing up for her big Bollywood break. If rumors are to be believed, she has been roped in to play an important character in the Kangana Ranaut starrer, Manikarnika . The film is supposed to be based on the life and time of Rani Lakshmi Bai and Ankita will play the role of Jhalkarbai, a Dalit woman soldier in the army of Queen Lakshmi Bai of Jhansi. Jhalkarbai was one of the prominent advisers to the queen in the revolt of 1857. The film's first look is supposed to be out in August.
Ankita has been hogging the limelight quite often since her breakup with Sushant Singh Rajput. Apparently, Ankita and Sushant who were seen as a couple in Zee TV's prime time show, Pavitra Rishta, were going strong until last year the reports of their break up surfaced. And Sushant cleared the air with his tweet announcing his break up with Ankita. It's been almost three years, and we haven't seen the lady in action.

This will be Sanjay Dutt's second movie after Bhoomi, shooting for which is under way.
Ankita has been learning horse riding and sword fighting for her role in Manikarnika.
