The fans bashed Ankita Lokhande for being part of the series.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s fans are upset with Ekta Kapoor’s AltBalaji and Ankita Lokhande for their decision to release Pavitra Rishta 2 as a web series. As soon as the sequel to the 2009 TV soap was announced minus Sushant, the fans lost their calm.
Bashing Ankita, a user wrote, “If this lady really loved our SSR then she would never take part in this serial again.”
Here are some more tweets proving the same:
Shaheer Sheikh has replaced Sushant in the role of Manav in the web series. Meanwhile, Ankita reprises her role as Archana.
The web series went on floors on July 11. The series’ tagline reads ‘#ItsNeverTooLate.’
AltBalaji shared an image of Shaheer and Ankita holding a clapperboard from the show. “Sometimes in most ordinary lives, we find the most extraordinary love stories. Witness the extraordinary love story of Manav and Archana. ‘Pavitra Rishta’ begins filming. Streaming soon on ALTBalaji,” the OTT platform shared.
Soon after the post, the fans shared #BoycottPavitraRishta2 and #OurManavOnlySushant on Twitter. Both the hashtags started trending at different points of time.
Pavitra Rishta 2 will stream on Zee5 for 55 days. It will later be available on AltBalaji.
The show is directed by Nandita Mehra. Usha Nadkarni, who played Manav’s mother Savita Deshmukh in the show, will reprise her role in the series. The rest of the cast of Pavitra Rishta 2 has not been announced yet. Pavitra Rishta was a show about a couple trying to live a quiet life in Mumbai.
