After the demise of Sushant Singh Rajput in June, there have been a number of filmmakers planning projects on the young star. However, the latest news will no doubt excite fans after it was reported that Ekta Kapoor is planning to make a sequel to ‘Pavitra Rishta’ as a tribute to Rajput.
Mumbai Mirror reports Ankita Lokhande, who played the love interest of Rajput on the show and in reality at the time, has approached Kapoor for a sequel of the ZEE TV hit series.
A source told the publication, “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.”
Apparently, work is underway on how to progress the story from when it ended in 2014. The source added, “Ekta has spearheaded several sequels on TV, including Hum Paanch, Kasautii Zindagii Kay and Naagin. 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.”
