Sushant Singh Rajput’s former girlfriend Ankita Lokhande is heartbroken over the tragic demise of her boyfriend. Ankita, who started her career with Sushant in TV show Pavitra Rishta, went on to fall in love with the actor. The duo dated for almost 6 years and Sushant even proposed to Ankita on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa in 2011, but before they could begin their fairy tale love story together, Ankita and Sushant called it quits and moved on in their personal life. Now as a tribute to the late actor, Lokhande has approached Ekta Kapoor to bring back the most-loved TV show Pavitra Rishta on the small screens. Yes, you heard that right!
As Pavitra Rishta is Ekta Kapoor’s special show too, she is considering bringing back the show but as a sequel in the actor's loving memory. A source close to the development revealed to Mumbai Mirror, “The show was close to Sushant’s heart as it gave him the platform to scale new heights and both Ekta and Ankita feel that a new season will be the best tribute to the deceased actor. Ekta has spearheaded several sequels on TV, including Hum Paanch, Kasautii Zindagii Kay and Naagin.”
The source further revealed to the tabloid that it was Ankita who came up with the idea and approached Ekta for the same. Source added, “It was Ankita who approached Ekta with the idea and since Pavitra Rishta is a special show for her too, she immediately agreed. She will sit with her team of writers and explore how to take the daily soap forward.”
The report further states that the shoot will kick off once everyone is satisfied with the script and characters. We are sure this is going to make every SSR fan's day.
