Telly Ville has given us umpteen number of shows that has made the characters household names in no time. One such show was Pavitra Rishta. Having run for good five long years, the show finally bid adieu to fans in 2015.
The show was extremely popular for its content, character portrayal and subtle romance. You think about PVR and the first thing that flashes across your mind is Archana and Manav. Played by Ankita Lokhande and Sushant Singh Rajput respectively, the couple was loved by zillions.
The storyline of a lower middle class girl Archana, falling in love with her Manav and how they together overcome all the hurdles in life was what made fans stay hooked onto the show. The show that debuted on Indian screens on 1st June 2009, completes 8 years today. Ankita Lokhande’s took to Instagram to thank PVR for giving her the best moments of her life.
She captioned it as, “1st June 2009 PVR my baby u will always be close to my heart .. today u r 8yrs old .. thanku for every single thing u gaveARCHANA DESHMUKH I love u forever ..aasman main jab tak Sitaare rahenge hum ek dusere ke sahare rahenge nazdikiya yaa ho duriyaa bass pyaar hi rahega darmiyaan pavitra rishta tere mere Mann ka#happy8yearsof pavitrarishta#wattajourney#memoriesforlife#pvrfamily.” While SSR has gone the Bollywood way, Ankita chose to take a break from acting after working back to back for 5 long years. The show was helmed by Ekta Kapoor and was a product of Balaji telefilms. Congratulations Team PVR.
