The 39-year-old actress post featured a video montage showcasing memorable moments from Pavitra Rishta alongside glimpses of her later projects, including the film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi and her appearance on Bigg Boss 17.

The caption paid a special tribute to her former co-star and partner Sushant Singh Rajput. Ankita expressed her immense gratitude for his support, particularly during the initial stages of her career. "But my journey wouldn't be complete if I didn't have Sushant's support," she wrote. "I didn't even know how to act when I started Pavitra Rishta. He taught me, and I will always be thankful for him."

Lokhande concluded by expressing her appreciation for the television industry, acknowledging it as the platform where she first experienced fandom and stardom.  "People could resonate with the show because of the innocence the show and the people involved in it had," she stated.
