Pavitra Rishta, the iconic show of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput is all set to have a come back with a twist and the viewers are waiting to know who will take the role of Sushant Singh Rajput as Manav in the new season. Adityoa Suranna, the casting director of Pavitra Rishta 2.0, has confirmed that Shaheer Sheikh will play the lead role as Manav. However, Usha Nadkarni and Ankita Lokhande will reprise their roles of Savita and Archana. The new season, ‘Pavitra Rishta 2.0’, will stream on the digital platform.
Speaking to Digital Zoom, Adityoa Suranna told “Pavitra Rishta 2.0 is completely digital. To be honest, it is a challenge is for everybody. Jo task hai that it is not only for me but also for the actors who have been locked. If we have seen something already, we have already set a benchmark. If this was a new show, whatever we would do, would be fresh for people. But already, hum sabke paas ek benchmark hai. It is not only for me but for the actors, directors and for everyone. Do log hai (from the old cast), Ankita is playing Archana’s part, Ushan ma’am is playing her part. We have already seen them and have loved them. But for the rest of the actors, they have a challenge. Especially for Manav, for Shaheer it is a big challenge to live up to that space. But at the same time, it is a challenge for directors, me and other actors as well”.
When he was asked how Shaheer was chose for the role, Adityoa said “Luck bhi hai, popularity bhi hai. Jo makers hai eventually Zee, Ekta ma’am because vo logo ne ye iconic show banaya tha, create kiya tha toh unse accha toh iss chiz ko kon samjhega that who is the best. Obviously, they are the creators and they have already created history in life, so, I think and I believe that they would know well which actor can play which character better”.
