The second season of the popular TV series ‘Pavitra Rishta’ was announced on Sunday by actors Ankita Lokhande and Shaheer Sheikh. The 2009 show, sponsored by Ekta Kapoor, became Sensation, with former Susput Singh Rajput and Lokhande actors gaining a good reputation. The ZEE TV show found immense fame for their love affair and for the couple Singh and Lokhande, they played Manav and Archana respectively. It lasted five years and saw 1424 episodes. Since Sushant is no longer there, the role of Manav will be repeated by Shaheer. Taking the handle on his social media on Tuesday, the actor explained his reason for putting himself in the shoes of the SSR and getting his approval to play the role of Manav.
Shaheer wrote a lengthy note: “When I first approached PR2, I was shocked. In his own right, Sushant Singh would dare to play a character immortalized by Rajput. I was also reluctant. Then I thought, I knew Sushant to complete all the challenges. So I decided that while it was scary to step on his shoes and live up to the expectations of the audience … it’s even scarier not to try. they wanted us all to be able to tell a story that was a tribute to Sushant’s Legacy … leave all and everything in the hands of the public and The All Mighty.
Working with a team that was so loved and respected adds to the real intent that is in our hearts. Sushant, you will always be Manav. Nothing can change that and no one can replace that. I may not be so good, and I may not do you justice as you did, but I promise I will give it to EVERYONE. # pavitrarishta2. “
ALTBalaji’s official Instagram account posted a photo of 36-year-old Lokhande and Sheikh from the filming of the session. “Sometimes in the most ordinary lives, we find the strangest love stories. Witness the extraordinary love story of Manav and Archana. ‘Pavitra Rishta’ starts filming. It is soon broadcast on ALTBalajin,” the headline read. The two sessions of the show are titled “Pavitra Rishta … it’s never too late”.
While Lokhand will continue to try on the role of Archana, the 37-year-old Sheikh has stepped on board to portray the character Manav. Bhairavi Raichura, who has become an actor-producer, will direct 24 Frames Production after directing a digital series that will be available exclusively at ZEE5 for 55 days, which will also be available at ALTBalajin.
The series will be directed by Nandita Mehra and will be written by Nikita Dhond, Gautam Hegde and Ritu Bhatia. Not only Lokhande and Singh, who died last year, also featured Hiten Tejwani, Asha Negi, Rithvik Dhanjani and Karan Veer Mehra in “Pavitra Rishta”.
While actress Usha Nadkarni will return as Savita Deshmukh (Manav’s mother), other members of the actors have yet to be announced.
