The audience will once again see the chemistry on Manav and Archana onscreen.

The role of Manav Deshmukh is now played by actor Shaheer Sheikh and Ankita has reprised her role as Archana. Sushant Singh Rajput, who was found dead in Mumbai on June 14 last year, rose to fame as the lead on Pavitra Rishta, an Ekta Kapoor-produced soap opera that has returned for a new season. On Sunday evening, ALTBalaji – Ekta Kapoor’s digital platform – shared a few photos of Ankita Lokhande, Shaheer Sheikh, Usha Nadkarni (who played Savita Deshmukh), Asheema Vardaan and Randeep Rai from the first day of Pavitra Rishta 2‘s shoot.
