Ankita Lokhande and Sushant Singh Rajput became Manav and Archana for all when Pavitra Rishta turned out to be the most popular show several years ago. The two started dating while working on the TV show but eventually, went their separate ways as destiny would have had it. Last year, Sushant’s death left a huge void in the industry and in our lives. Now, Ankita is soon reprising her role in Pavitra Rishta 2 with Shaheer Sheikh stepping into Sushant’s shoes. Here, in this exclusive chat, Ankita opens up about her first day on the set with Sushant, missing him during the shoot now and explains why ‘nobody can ever replace him’. Apart from that, she also discusses how it’s been working with Shaheer and also opens up on the criticism and trolling that came her way when she decided to take the show up. Up close and personal; watch it here!
