Ankita became popular with the daily soap Pavitra Rishta, where she starred opposite her actor beau Sushant Singh Rajput.

There were reports that she was quitting the show because she had to portray the role of a grandmother as the serial took a time leap.

She resumed shooting after three months, as she was promised a double role (she plays the granddaughter as well) 

Apparently, now the show is set to take another jump of four years.

With Iss Pyaar Ki Kya Naam Doon and Miley Jab Hum Tum, Sanaya’s fan following grew bigger than most television heroes’.

She failed to impress in Chhanchhan, but as the demure Paro in Rangrasiya, viewers have no reason to complain.

Hindi is not Sanaya’s first language and she has, on her own admission, struggled to sound comfortable in the show that has a Rajasthani milieu.
