Television queen Ekta Kapoor in 2009 launched a show titled Pavitra Rishta which saw Manav and Archana's love story. Late actor Sushant Singh Rajput and Ankita Lokhande played the leads in the daily soap and made fans cry, laugh, and emotional via their acting. This ZEE TV serial was one of the most hit small screens shows ever. Sadly, SSR passed away in June 2020 and the audience was heartbroken. Now, after a hiatus, the show is making a comeback sans Sushant. Pavitra Rishta 2: Shaheer Sheikh Replaces Late Sushant Singh Rajput as Manav; Ankita Lokhande Back As Archana as Shoot Begins.
