While the absence of Sushant Singh Rajput will always be missed in the TV show, it seems Shaheer's hard work has finally paid off with audiences going gaga over his performance.
Pavitra Rishta 2: The all time popular TV series Pavitra Rishta 2 is finally out for viewers. Fans were eagerly waiting to watch actor Shaheer Sheikh in the role of Manav, a simpleton, which was earlier played by late actor Sushant Singh Rajput. While the absence of Sushant Singh Rajput will always be missed in the TV show, it seems Shaheer’s hard work has finally paid off with audiences going gaga over his performance. Audiences’ overwhelming reactions on social media/ internet pretty much shows that Shaheer is winning hearts of the audiences in his role as Manav.
Netizens praised Shaheer’s role as Manav and also appreciated his chemistry with Ankita Lokhande, who will be seen as Archana. Some of the Twitter users wrote, “No doubt Shaheer has set a bar as Manav. Archana looked so innocent and her voice alone has an overall different impact”.

While many came in support of Shaheer’s acting, Sushant Singh Rajput’s fans did not look happy. They did not like the fact that Shaheer was playing the iconic role of Manav which was played by the late Sushant Singh Rajput. One of the Twitter users wrote, “This iconic character belongs to SSR” calling the overall show a “flop” of a remake. This was not over yet. Some of the fans even started demanding “boycott” for the show claiming that nobody can replace Sushant in the show.
This iconic role belongs to Sushant ONLY. Foolish of u to think he can be replaced. History has shown that most remakes r flops. Welcome to flop show pavitra Rishta 2.
