She's seen with her arm in a sling in this image Instagrammed some days ago by actress Mouni Roy:
Ankita Lokhande, 31, told SpotBoyE, "I had lit an aroma candle in my room. I don't know how my curtain caught fire and before I knew my bedroom was on fire. I tried a lot to salvage the disaster but in the process, I burnt both my hands and neck."
Things could apparently have been much worse, she explained. "Thank God that my face was not burnt. And you know what! Right outside my bedroom balcony, I had 4 gas cylinders, I shudder to think what would have happened if...," she said, adding: "I guess my good karma saved me from a major disaster."
"It hurts a lot," Ankita said. Her ruined bedroom is now being repaired and renovated.
Ankita Lokhande is known for her work on the TV shows Pavitra Rishta and Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa.
She recently ended a six-year romance with former Pavitra Rishta co-star Sushant Singh Rajput.
