There were rumours that post her split from long-time beau Sushant Singh Rajput, TV actress Ankita Lokhande was quite heartbroken.
But according to recent reports, the actress now seems to be finding solace in former co-star, Karan Mehra, who played the character of Naren on the show Pavitra Rishta.
A source was quoted saying, "Karan was spotted at Veera Desai Road in Andheri at about 8 am on Monday. He was talking on the phone. A few passersby were wondering why he was hanging around despite being recognised. It did not take long for them to realise that he was waiting for someone."
Reportedly, what followed left onlookers baffled. Within minutes, an auto-rickshaw arrived and Ankita got off. Karan paid the rickshaw fare and the two then quickly headed to Empire building in the vicinity where Karan resides.
The source added, "People were taken aback to see Ankita alight from the rickshaw. It looked like she had walked straight out of bed since what she was wearing resembled nightwear."
When Ankita was asked about her closeness to Karan, she was quoted saying, "Karan is my best friend and so is his wife. He stays in that building, so he must have been hanging around there. Why would I go to meet him early in the morning? I have a car; why would I travel by rickshaw? I prefer to stay away from the limelight. I am scared to go out since I don’t know what people will say. I don’t like to talk about my personal life."
