Ankita Lokhande is one of the biggest names in Indian television. The actress, who got married to businessman Vicky Jain last year, also moved into a new house with her husband recently. And now, Ankita has shared a video recorded on the occasion of the couple's housewarming ceremony. In it, the actress has given fans a tour of her new house and also introduced Vicky Jain's family to her Instafam. But there's a twist. Ankita's video is an ode to the show Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and its iconic opening scene that features the lead character Tulsi Virani welcoming the audience into her house. Ankita has even used the theme song of the show for her Instagram video.
In her caption, Ankita Lokhande explained that the video was dedicated to Smriti Irani, who played Tulsi Virani as well as the producer Ekta Kapoor. Along with the video, Ankita wrote, “Archana Deshmukh X Tulsi Virani.” For the unversed, Archana is the character played by Ankita in Pavitra Rishta.
Ankita Lokhande further wrote, “I had super fun recreating this video with my family at our housewarming puja. This one for you Ekta Kapoor and Smriti Irani ma'am, Tulsi will be in our hearts forever. Hope you both love this.”
In the video, Ankita Lokhande introduces us to Vicky Jain, her mom, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, father-in-law and mother-in-law.
And, Smriti Irani didn't miss this warm gesture. She left a "God Bless" note with a red heart under the picture. Ekta Kapoor wrote, “This is beyond cute, Archana.” Actor Kushal Tandon dropped a heart emoji. Jasmin Bhasin dropped heart-eye and evil-eye amulet emojis.
Ankita Lokhande's Manikarnika co-star Kangana Ranaut said, “How cute,” with a heart emoji.

Here's another set of images of the much-in-love couple chilling at home. In the caption, Ankita Lokhande just dropped a bunch of happy emojis.
Ankita Lokhande and Vicky Jain also struck a typical filmy pose in front of their new home. In the caption, Ankita said, “Cheers to the new beginnings baby. #newhome #blessedwiththebest.”
