Shaheer Sheikh to step into Sushant Singh Rajput’s shoes to play Manav in Pavitra Rishta 2.0


The popular Indian television show Pavitra Rishta will soon get its second season. And here is a big news for all the fans of the show, according to the show’s casting director Shaheer Sheikh will be playing the role of Manav. A role which was originally played by late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

Pavitra Rishta 2.0 which will see Ankita Lokhande and Usha Nadkarni reprising their roles is set for a digital debut.

Talking about the actors, casting director Adityoa Suranna said, “Pavitra Rishta 2.0 is completely digital. To be honest, it is a challenge for everybody. The task 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 (all of us have a benchmark).”

“It is not only for me but for the actors, directors and for everyone. There are two people (from the old cast), Ankita Lokhande is playing Archana’s part, Usha 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 Sheikh 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.” He added

Produced by Ekta Kapoor, Pavitra Rishta was one of the most popular television shows when it first aired in 2009.  Sushant stepped down from the show to make his Bollywood debut with Abhishek Kapoor’s Kai Po Che, in 2013. Hiten Tejwani played the role after Sushant quit the show.
