The shocking disappearance of Sushant Singh Rajput is still talking about him. People don’t want to believe the actor has passed away. It was on June 14 that we all learned the news of his suicide at his Bandra residence and since then the investigation into his case has continued. It was the saddest day in everyone’s life and especially those close to them. Sushant Singh Rajput’s ex-girlfriend Ankita Lokhande had been with him for several years and later they separated. However, everyone still remembers them as Manav and Archana from Pavitra Rishta. Yesterday Pavitra Rishta finished 12 years old. Ankita took to Instagram live for her fans to celebrate the special occasion and also cut a beautiful fan-made cake. During this live session, she remembered her co-star Sushant Singh Rajput.
She said: “It was so upsetting for me today, I saw so many videos with Sushant, me, the whole family that made me very moved. Pavitra Rishta is my firstborn. My feelings towards this show is very sacred. All the cast and crew of Pavitra Rishta are very connected to it and we are like a big family, meeting and talking to each other even now. ” She also thanked Ekta Kapoor for choosing her as Archana. She said: “I am very lucky that Ekta saw Archana in me and I really love him very much. I am also very grateful to people for creating Archana.” Ankita Lokhande also spoke about the first episode of Pavitra Rishta and explained how the first episode aired on June 1, 2009 at 4:30 am and that the episode was supposed to air at 9:00 pm but due to a “mahurat” of auspicious, Ekta Kapoor posted the episode at 4:30 a.m.
She was in tears when she spoke about Sushant Singh Rajput. Ankita said: “Sushant aaj hamare beech nahi hai, uske bina Pavitra Rishta adhoora hai. Archana ka Manav sirf Sushant tha. (Sushant is not with us and Pavitra Rishta is incomplete without him. Only Sushant was the Manav of Archana ). I am sure vo jahaan bhi hai vahaan dekh raha hai. I hope he is happy wherever he is. Sushant taught me to play, I didn’t know anything. I was junior and he was very senior . He was a brilliant actor, a brilliant co-star and I’m very lucky to work with him. ” She also mentioned Hiten Tejwani who replaced Sushant as Manav later. She also shared another video on Pavitra Rishta’s Instagram and wrote: “12 years of Pavitra rishta. 12 years !! Ohh, yes yes, that’s 12 years of Pavitra Rishta, time flies very quickly. 66 awards, #Pavitrarishta remains one of Indian TV’s most beloved show. Here are 12 glorious years of this iconic show. Which not only gave me Archana, but love all over the world and made me what I am today. The story that celebrates joie de vivre, love, family and friendship. Thank you @balajitelefilmslimited @ektarkapoor for making me Archana and thank you to all the cast and crew. Thank you Maa and Paa for having always supported me. @ Prarthana.behere @priyamarathe @usha__nadkarni @kishormahabole @memaheshshetty @hitentejwani @karanveerme @mishthi_tyagi @shrutikanwar @ashanegi @rithvik_d @minalmagogiavapurjpurjpurjpurjpuhvicuhvibuthavihanshavihanshavihavihanshavihanpurjuvarhvibuhvichvibutuhvibuhvibuhanshavihansharuhvichvichvichvichvichvichvichvichvichvicu @ aparnadixit2061 # pavitrarishta # 12years # balajitele # thread ms # archana # ektakamopories
