A fan wrote: “Ankita Lokhande and Sushant Singh Rajput will always be Archana and Manav of Pavitra Rishta.”Another fan wrote: “Manav is not a name. It is an emotion of millions…That emotion which directly connects to Sushant.. So we can’t accept this Manav 2… Let’s Boycott.. OUR MANAV ONLY SUSHANT”.
