After participating in India’s Best Cinestars Ki Khoj (2007–09), Lokhande won the lead role of Archana Deshmukh in Ekta Kapoor’s daily soap Pavitra Rishta. She portrayed Archana opposite Sushant Singh Rajput and Hiten Tejwani from 2009 to 2014. Pavitra Rishta took a generation leap in 2013 and Lokhande also began playing Archana’s granddaughter Ankita Karmarkar, opposite Karan Veer Mehra, until the series ended in 2014.

Lokhande participated in Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 4, where she was placed 5th and Comedy Circus ka Naya Daur. She did two episodes for Ek Thhi Naayka, opposite Sachin Shroff.

After a two-year gap from acting and her separation from Rajput, there were reports that Lokhande was set for a movie debut with a role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period drama Padmaavat (2018). However she left the movie, replying that she was not ready for film.

The following year, speculation spread that she had been signed for Girish Malik’s film Torbaaz along with Sanjay Dutt. However, rumours proved to be untrue after Malik stated that Lokhande was not going to be involved with the film.

Film debut and expansion (2019–present)

In 2018, Lokhande announced that she would make her film debut and would appear in the role of Jhalkaribai, a warrior in Krish and Kangana Ranaut’s joint directorial venture Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, an epic drama based on the life of Rani Lakshmi Bai. The film received a theatrical premiere during the eve of Republic Day 2019 and did quite well at the box-office, becoming her first commercial success.

She played the role of Kapoor’s elder sister married to Deshmukh’s character. The film was released prior to the shut down of theatres owing to COVID-19 pandemic in India, which affected the box office performance. Filmfare stated, “The two girls Shraddha and Ankita, despite the build-up about them both being fiery characters, have nothing to do really in the film.”
