The idea for Pavitra Rishta 2.o was conceptualized after Sushant’s demise in June last year. Earlier this month, Shaheer Sheikh took to social media penning down a heartfelt note remembering Sushant Singh Rajput and talked about stepping into his shoes for the role. “Working with a team that loved & respected him immensely only adds to the genuine intent in all our hearts. Sushant, you will always be Manav. Nothing can change that & no one can replace that. I may not be as good, and I may not do justice to it like you did, but I promise to give it my ALL,” he wrote.

Sushant and Ankita as Manav and Archana became household names as Pavitra Rishta ran for five years and clocked 1424 episodes. While the release date for the show has not been announced yet, shooting has already started.
