Ankita Lokhande made a lot of headlines while she was on one of the most controversial shows, Bigg Boss 17. She was constantly in the news for her fights with her husband and co-contestant Vicky Jain. However, the actress is still making headlines for being away from the show-sha and revealed in a recent interview that she is dealing with anxiety and finding it difficult to watch the Bigg Boss episodes. 

Following the end of the show, we witnessed all of the contestants going to various parties and enjoying themselves; however, Ankita Lokhande was nowhere to be seen, which left the audience with a lot of unanswered questions. She even skipped the finale celebrations, as everyone knows, and just fled the sets as soon as the winner was declared

Now, actress Ankita Lokhande revealed in a recent interview that she chose not to attend the parties because of health reasons. She said that she is busy taking care of her post-show responsibilities. She also mentioned that she could not attend Abhishek Kumar's party, despite receiving an invitation because of health reasons. 

She said, "I have developed anxiety issues, so I am trying to maintain a balance." She revealed that she tried to watch the Bigg Boss 17 episodes and admitted feeling mentally affected by the experience.

Ankita was finally seen at the reunion of Bigg Boss 17 contestants party which took place recently. All the contestants were seen having a blast at the party which was attended by Ankita's husband Vicky Jain as well. 

Ankita has been open about her mental health both inside and outside of the Bigg Boss house. The actress has finally made it quite evident that she is taking time to work on herself first, even though many people have been curious about why she has avoided parties and social events. Let's just agree that we should all prioritize our well-being above all else. 

Ankita completed Bigg Boss 17 as the third runner-up. Munawar Faruqui won the trophy. Abhishek Kumar was second and Mannara Chopra was the third in the list. On the personal front, Ankita married Vicky Jain on December 14, 2021, in Mumbai.
