Ekta Kapoor’s magnum opus, Pavitra Rishta, the show that completed 1000 episodes and is still running is soon coming to an end according to the latest buzz. Sources, states that the TV Czarina is all set to launch a new serial which will replace the long running show.
Pavitra Rishta is the same show which gave us Sushant Singh Rajput, Ankita Lokhande and Ritvik Dhanjani. It is one of those serials which almost every Indian television viewer watched closely year after year. Viewers of Pavitra Rishta have a strong connection with the show. They are not only well connected with the plot, storyline but also the characters involved.
First, they were keen to watch Sushant Singh Rajput as Manav and Ankit Lokhande as Archana and when Arjun – Purvi were introduced as couples, the attention was shifted to them. People started loving Arjun and Purvi’s love story so much that they even twisted the script. Yes, when Ekta departed the two love-birds Arjun-Purvi in the reel-life, the entire nation went bersek. Letters were written, mails were forwarded and petition was signed, ultimately compelling Ekta to get Arjun-Purvi aka Ritvik-Asha back as a couple. This was the impact and effect of PR.
Twice we heard before that the serial will go off air, first when Sushant quit and second when the story was going directionless. But it continued to run through all thick and thin. Now once again, the news is PR will go off air, do you think Zee TV’s long running show will finally put the curtains down this time or will it still continue to give us some more interesting twists? Also, now that people are again in love with the serial w.r.t Naren and Ankita’s track, do you think it is appropriate to end the show at this stage?
