Smart Jodi concluded its debut season recently, with Ankita Lokhande and Vicky Jain emerging as the winners of the coveted trophy. But it seems that Lokhande wasn't initially too keen on being part of the show, and it took some encouragement from her husband’s part to get her on board.
In conversation with ETimes, the actress revealed that they were offered the show on the heels of their wedding in December last year. Initially, the actress was not ‘keen’ on being a part of the show as she wanted to spend more time at home. But her husband had ‘motivated’ her by saying how ‘fun’ it might be.Lokhande talked about how, more than being a part of the show, she had wanted to spend more time with her husband, as the duo spent most of their time in different cities.
The actress said while most of the couples on the show had been living together for quite a while now, it marked a new beginning for her and Jain. Lokhande talked about how they learned a lot of things about each other during their stint on the Smart Jodi, including how competitive they both were.
Lokhande said that she believed they won the show because of their good communication, physical fitness and the fact that they were open about what they liked and disliked about each other. Revealing that she initially thought her husband would be camera shy, the actress said that she was surprised when he turned out to be a ‘perfect entertainer’.“He is lucky for me even though I keep telling him that I am lucky for him,” she added.
While Lokhande and Jain were announced as the show’s winners during the finale, Balraj Syal and Deepti Tuli were declared the runners up.
Smart Jodi can be streamed on Disney+Hotstar.
