Our source informs us, "The 20 years leap for Pavitra Rishta is on the cards and the reason for the actors quitting the show is that they don't wish to age. The show makers will start shooting for the leap within a month and it's said that Shakti Arora who plays Dr Onir will most likely leave the show! The same goes for Arjun (Rithvik Dhanjani), Purvi (Asha Negi) and Ovi (Shruti Kanwar) who will no more be part of the show. Even Pooni (Jai Mustafa) will no longer be part of the show as she has put down her papers."
The source explains, "The ones who will continue with the show are Archana (Ankita Lokhande), Manav (Hiten Tejwani),and Teju Mrinalini Tyagi . The story will show the kid Pari growing up, while Teju will have a new character opposite her and Archana and Manav will become grandparents. Rest all will be a completely new cast."
The source also said that in case the actors are not convinced the show will have to be puled off air. However, the actors are in a confused state of mind as they are not aware as to what will happen with their respective characters.
We asked Mrinalini Tyagi and she said, "I cant comment now. I too have heard about the leap but I will continue to be a part of the show."
While Jia Mustafa was of the opinion, "I don't want to comment anything as of now."
Lastly, Shakti Arora said, "I have no clue about the leap, nor my track in the show. Till I know anything concrete I won't comment."
Let's all keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best.
