Talking about her first meeting with Sushant, Ankita said that they both thought they were arrogant. She recalled one incident when she made Sushant wait for a couple of hours and the latter felt that Ankita had the heroine attitude.

“It was very weird. I think it was really weird. Sushant was very silent like Shaheer Sheikh, only I think he was doing his own work. Very much like Shaheer. He used to be on his own…we had to go for the promo shoot and Sushant had come to pick me up from my home and I was downstairs. My mother was also there. I remember I got late. My makeup and hair were being done from 4 am and Sushant had reached my place around 5 am”, Ankita told The Quint.

Ankita further added, “I came down at 6 am and he was very angry. After I came downstairs I got into the backseat of the car with my mother and fall asleep. He was so angry that firstly I came late and then went to sleep in the backseat. He took the car from the driver and did rash driving. I didn’t understand why he was doing like that. My mother then said ‘He is getting angry’. I was like ‘what can I do? He should have come upstairs’. That was my first meeting with Sushant that way. He was like ‘Oh she went and fall asleep in the backseat. She has the heroine attitude’.”

The new season of ‘Pavitra Rishta 2.0’ will release on September 15 on ZEE5. In the new season, the character of ‘Manav’ will be played by Shaheer Sheikh.
