The wait is finally over. The web series Pavitra Rishta..It's never too late which was in news for the longest time finally gets a release date. One of the most television’s favorite jodis Archana and Manav are back, but this time on Zee5. After a decade Ankita Lokhande will be seen reprising the role of Archana and while Shaheer Sheikh is stepping into the shoes of Manav’s character which was earlier played by late Sushant Singh Rajput. The most popular show is all set to premiere on 15 September on the digital platform.
The teaser which was released last week was very well received by the fans and there was a lot of excitement for the new digital version of the series. And now with the trailer release, we are sure fans will be eager to see how the series unfolds.
As seen in the trailer, the series is a romantic family drama centered around Manav and Archana, the quintessential daughter-in-law and son of every Indian family, and their two typical middle-class families. Unlike other romantic dramas, ‘Pavitra Rishta…it’s never too late’ will see the beginning of a love story from where it was forced to end as Manav and Archana are conned into the sacred union of marriage by their families.
Speaking about the show Ekta Ravi Kapoor said, “Some shows and characters leave a big impression on you for years to come. ‘Pavitra Rishta’ was one such show which impacted so many lives and received so much love and good wishes from fans across the world. There could not have been better timing to bring back the show and honour its legacy. I am sure that the fans will give it as much as love and acceptance as they did to the first season”.
Actress Ankita Lokhande who is reprising the role of Archana after decades shares, “Rarely does one do a role or a project which transforms their lives completely. Pavitra Rishta was that project for me as the love I received from the audience for Archana’s character was unparalleled. So, how could I turn down the opportunity to reprise the role and continue the legacy of Archana? I am so grateful to Ekta and ZEE for reviving Pavitra Rishta and for having faith in me again. I am eager to see the audience’s reaction to Archuu all over again”.
Stepping into the shoes of Manav Shaheer Sheikh exclaims, “It has been a rollercoaster of emotions for me – from the time I was offered the role to eventually being on set and shooting with this amazing unit. It’s been a challenging role to essay, but I have given it my all. In the process of shooting the show, I realised that ‘Manav’ is the most earnest and pure character I’ve ever played and in today’s day and age, such a character is a rarity! Now I only hope that our efforts resonate with the audiences”.
