The show that gave late Sushant Singh Rajput's career a major boost and he became the face of it was Pavitra Rishta co-starring Ankita Lokhande. The late actor played the lead as Manav in Pavitra Rishta. Now, as the show is being remade by Ekta Kapoor for the OTT platform, Shaheer Sheikh has stepped in to play Manav.

Taking to her Instagram stories, late Sushant's sister Shweta sent prayers to the team of Pavitra Rishta 2.0 as she shared a boomerang video of Ankita as Archana with the clapboard.

Shweta shared the posts and wrote, "I am so happy about this. Wishing luck to the Pavitra Rishta team." In another post, she wrote, "Prayers for the success of Pavitra Rishta."
