Pavitra Rishta 2: Shaheer Sheikh pens note on playing Sushant Singh Rajput’s role
Shaheer Sheikh pens note on playing Sushant Singh Rajpur role's Manav Deshmukh in 'Pavitra Rishta 2.'
Shaheer Sheikh is all set to essay the role of Manav, a character once played by late actor Sushant Singh Rajput in the popular television show, ‘Pavitra Rishta 2.’ Ankita Lokhande will reprise her role of Archana from the first season and Usha Nadkarni as Manav’s mother Savita. Now, Shaheer penned a note of playing SSR’s character. He also opened up on how he felt when he was approached for the reboot.
The actor wrote: “When I was first approached for PR2, I was taken aback. Who in their right frame of mind, would dare to play a character immortalised by Sushant Singh Rajput.. I too was reluctant. Then I thought, knowing Sushant he was one to take every challenge head on. And so I decided that while it is scary to step into his shoes & live upto audience expectations… it is scarier to NOT even try. And so I did what I felt he would do, if he was in my position. I took the challenge. When the team told me they wanted someone who was earnest so that we could all tell a story that was a fitting homage to Sushant’s legacy… I decided to give it my all and leave the rest to the audiences and to The All Mighty.”
“Working with a team that loved & respected him immensely only adds to the genuine intent in all our hearts. Sushant, you will always be Manav. Nothing can change that & no one can replace that. I may not be as good, and I may not do justice to it like you did, but I promise to give it my ALL. 🙏 #pavitrarishta2,” wrote Sheikh.
