Hiten Tejwani has been confirmed as the new Manav in ZEE TV’s long running popular series ‘Pavitra Rishta’.

Tejwani replaces Sushant Singh Rajput who quit the show earlier this month to pursue a film career. Rajput stopped filming for ‘Pavitra Rishta’ last week, with Tejwani to begin shoot for the show from the coming week.

Tejwani bagged the show over Mrunal Jain, Sharad Kelkar and Yash Tonk. Prior to signing for ‘Pavitra Rishta’, Tejwani has appeared in shows like ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay’, ‘Kumkum’, ‘Choti Bahu’ and more recently ‘Mukti Bandhan’. He also hosted the last series of ‘Swayamvar’ on Imagine TV.

The all-new ‘Pavitra Rishta’ will be effective from early November on ZEE TV UK.
