Sushant Singh Rajput’s Fans Call For Boycott Of Pavitra Rishta 2, #BoycottPavitraRishta2 Trends On Twitter
SSR fans have outright rejected the digital reboot of his iconic show, Pavitra Rishta. Hashtags have been trending on Twitter as fans express their displeasure on Pavitra Rishta 2.0, some even went to the extend of trolling Ankita Lokhande.
Sushant Singh Rajput is one of the most loved actors in the country. Even today, a year after his untimely demise, the actor and his work, is remembered by millions. Amid all this, ZEE5 thought of reviving one of Sushant’s most iconic roles, Manav from Pavitra Rishta with a digital reboot of the show. This was planned as a tribute to Sushant Singh Rajput and his legacy. But looks like this didn’t settle well with all the SSR fans as they started calling for a boycott of the show while trending about the same on Twitter.
Pavitra Rishta 2 or Pavitra Rishta 2.0 is a retelling of Archana and Manav’s story from a new perspective. The characters and settings remain the same, however, the story would be different. But one major change is that while Ankita Lokhande will be seen reprising her role of Archana, the role of Manav in Pavitra Rishta 2.0 will be essayed by Shaheer Sheikh. Now, this wasn’t acceptable to Sushant’s fans and they called for a boycott of the show.
Fans were seen tweeting that nobody can replace SSR in Manav’s role. They also mentioned how Manav is not just a character for them and claimed that they have millions of emotions attached to the character. Adding to this, the agitated fans said that the makers can’t play with their emotions. Some fans of Sushant Singh Rajput were also seen mocking and trolling Ankita Lokhande, stating that if she really loved him, she would’ve never accepted this project.
SSR fans have clearly rejected Pavitra Rishta 2.0 stating that there was no need for a season 2 where Sushant’s iconic character will be played by someone else. Check out some of the fan tweets here:
No one can replace this gem
No one has the guts to replace his character or him
He is with us
He is alive in our hearts
We will keep fighting for his honor

Manav is not a name. It is a emotion of millions…That emotion which directly connects to Sushant..
So we can’t accept this Manav 2…

Sushant is the one who made Manav Immortal. And we can’t see anyone else playing Manav.
Never use his name for your personal gain.
