Actress Ankita Lokhande was one of the Top 5 contestants of Bigg Boss 17. However, even being a strong contestant, she could not make a place even in the top 3 contestants at the finale. Post the BB finale, the actress avoided the media and left the sets without giving any interviews, for which she made multiple headlines. Now, in a recent media interaction, the actress revealed that she was embarrassed that she did not win the Bigg Boss 17 trophy. 

Ankita expressed her disbelief at finishing fourth on Bigg Boss 17 in a recent interview by indianexpress. She said that she was shocked and never thought that she would end up being in the 4th position. She added that even though she always felt like it was part of the game, she never anticipated that she would finish in fourth place. She said, "Someone wins, and someone loses. I think you win just by going on that show. It is not easy to survive there. Mentally, it is very exhausting."

She further said that they all eventually return home smiling. "It was embarrassing when I came in the fourth position, but I took it positively," the Pavitra Rishta actress added.

Ankita Lokhande unveiled her movie, Swatantra Veer Savarkar, starring Randeep Hooda, shortly after leaving the Bigg Boss 17 house. She even discussed her plans for Bollywood revealing that there are a few further projects after this movie.

I am reading a lot of scripts. Now I want to get into the commercial space where I can play a character like Jab We Met.”
