TV actress Ankita Lokhande has suffered burns on her hands and neck after her bedroom caught fire from a candle she’d lit. The actress, however, has escaped serious injuries.

“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. 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… (trails off). I guess my good karma saved me from a major disaster,” the actress was quoted as saying by entertainment website Spotboye.

Ankita’s relationship with Sushant Singh Rajput has always been the talk of the town. The news of their break up has surprised their fans. Despite there being buzz that he is dating co-actor Kriti Sanon, the actor has firmly denied the rumours. Sushant is ready with his next release, MS Dhoni: An Untold Story.

In a recent interview, Sushant told a Mumbai-based tabloid that he and Ankita spoke after he returned from Budapest after shooting Raabta. “It’s too personal but recently she told me about a project she is excited about and I wished her luck. It is a really big film. Ankita is very talented and deserves a good film to showcase her versatility,” he was quoted as saying.
