Shaheer Sheikh Pens An Emotional Note As He Steps Into Sushant Singh Rajput's Shoes To Play Manav

Ravi Sharma | July, 14 2021

Whenever we talk about the show Pavitra Rishta, automatically one name comes to our mind and that is Sushant Singh Rajput. The show gave us a shining star who unfortunately is no more with us. The makers are now coming up with its second season. While Ankita Lokhande will reprise the role of Archana, Shaheer Sheikh will be seen essaying the role of Manav this time.

Before people get to see him as Manav, Shaheer wrote an emotional note, "When I was first approached for PR2, I was taken aback. Who in their right frame of mind, would dare to play a character immortalised by Sushant Singh Rajput...I too was reluctant. Then I thought, knowing Sushant he was one to take every challenge head on. And so I decided that while it is scary to step into his shoes & live upto audience expectations…it is scarier to NOT even try.  And so I did what I felt he would do, if he was in my position. I took the challenge. When the team told me they wanted someone who was earnest so that we could all tell a story that was a fitting homage to Sushant’s legacy… I decided to give it my all and leave the rest to the audiences and to The All Mighty. 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. "

The note clearly shows that it was really a big challenge for the actor to say yes to this role. To step into Sushant's shoes will be tough for me but he has promised to give his best.

The show Pavitra Rishta 2 is being directed by Nandita Mehra and written by Nikiti Dhond, Gautam Hegde and Ritu Bhatia. It will stream on Alt Balaji soon.

We wish the entire team of the show all the best for their journey. Sushant will be missed dearly by them as well as his fans.
