Pavitra Rishta-2 on cards as a tribute to Sushant Singh Rajput?

Sushant Singh Rajput’s tragic death over a month ago left his fans and those close to him completely shattered including his ex-girlfriend and actress Ankita Lokhande. Though the couple parted ways years back, they kept their relationship cordial. And now, reports are fueling up that Ankita has approached Ekta Kapoor, Head of Balaji Telefilms, to make a second season for Pavitra Rishta as a tribute to late Sushant. 

The daily soap garnered top place on TRP charts back then and audiences just loved the on-screen chemistry between the lead pairs. As the show was close to Ekta and Sushant and Ankita both, reports now claim that Kapoor has appreciated the concept and is likely to have a session with her scriptwriters to take the idea forward. 

A source close to the production house said, “The show was close to Sushant’s heart as it gave him the platform to scale new heights and both Ekta and Ankita feel that a new season will be the best tribute to the deceased actor.”

The first season of Pavitra Rishta was produced by Balaji Telefims and was aired from 2009 to 2014. It was Ekta’s first serial title to not have the ‘K’ factor. Sushant Singh Rajput had a long association with Balaji Telefilms and Ekta Kapoor. In fact, he got his first break into the glamour industry in 2008 with the daily soap Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil.

Now, if the claimed reports are true, it will be interesting to see if any other actor could do justice to the role of Manav (Sushant).
