Sorry if I am butting in, but I just wanted to add my 2 cents.
I am already mourning the lack of Arman I am going to see so I have been watching PR from the beginning again (so sad, I know) and also some award functions for Sushita moments lol. What I can say is that whatever Ankita does, whether she acts old or decides to quit, she is so talented that I am certain that she will get work. She didn't even win her first show and she came so far. Also, in award functions, I also notice that Ekta seems to be quite fond of her. Ankita always thanks Balaji for the chance she has been given, and Ekta always smiles at her and blows her a kiss - which she doesn't do for Sushant (she didn't even really smile when PR won the award for best fiction)! So MAYBE, it is possible that Ekta herself has some other plans for Ankita after the show is over. Even if Ankita depicting Old Archana doesn't go down well with the audience, and PR crashes down to 0 TRP and gets banned from TV, Ekta might be more lenient towards Ankita because she was so loyal.. or something. I am just hoping, but I can tell from her interviews that Ankita is not stupid. She knows very well what she is doing with her life so I am not going to worry about her future as an actor.
But i am definitely sad that this is all Pavitra Rishta comes down to. From the very first episode, we have always been dieing to see at least one scene of Arman. But every episode was filled with fights, misunderstandings, sadness, tears.. something or another.. if there ever was a completely happy episode.. then happiness never lasted in PR. I just can't believe that it all comes down to Archana widowed, or Manav replaced. Both scenarios will demolish any sense of 'pavitra' or 'rishta in the show. They went through so much, Arman should have been shown to live the rest of their life happily, a normal life with their kids, with healthy relationships with their relatives and ended the show on this successful note. I feel like Arman are just getting punished for being so unhealthily good, and we, the audience, are getting punished for being utter fools and following this show thus far.
I too felt something lacking in Sushita from SBS/SBB segments. I also put it down to my imagination but something really seemed to be off. Sad times :( Sorry for the rant.
Oh Athena sorry..I click on like button..yesterday..but didn't put any words for you...It was very very late here...my husband was asking for how long I would be on computer..Did you see the time??
here I am today late cause went for shopping for Deeparvalee...
I really like your post dear..each words are just like what everybody are thinking ...so true
It will be so hard to see her as widow or another Manv replace.. Both scenarios will kill the sence of pavitra or rishta absolutely right...but with these two one will be choose..or at least a miracle.
.Sush stay..till the end.but as Sush don't agree with the leap and Ekta is just keeping it...as if..this leap will make TRP UP..which I don't i think..so..Sush is very far to stay now..
Its a vicious circle I said...at the end..we fan viewers who will unhappy..destroy..and disappointed..
Till then let see...Don't know how Anki will handle all this, yes she is intelligent..and harworking..girl since these previous ...hope really she will be out of this mess. after ..
