Ankita Lokhande, who is a popular face in household, thanks to her role as Archana in Zee TV's Pavitra Rishta, has reportedly been ousted from the show Comedy Circus on Sony TV. She will now be replaced by Shweta Tiwari.

The producers of Comedy Circus were apparently having a tough time adjusting with Ankita's timings and tantrums that she threw on the sets oft and on. Ankita Lokhande apparently would rarely report on time on the sets and was unable to give much time to the rehearsals, thus creating problems for her partner Kapil Sharma as well.

Though Kapil always received positive comments from the judges, the team's score was always low as Ankita could not match Kapil's comic timings.

When Ankita Lokhande was asked, she replied that she was the one who decided to quit Comedy Circus as she could not handle two shows at a time - Pavitra Rishta and Comedy Circus. She said, “Though I was trying to balance both, it was becoming very difficult for me to manage the timings of the shoots and so I had to make this decision.”
