Shaheer Sheikh stepped into the shoes of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput for the reboot of the popular daily soap Pavitra RishtaPavitra Rishta: It's Never Too Late also features Ankita Lokhande reprising her role from the original. Sheikh took to his Instagram and dedicated a post to the late actor as he spoke about taking on the role of Manav in the show. The actor wrote, "When I was first approached for Pavitra Rishta, I was taken aback. Who in their right frame of mind would dare to play a character immortalised by Sushant Singh Rajput.. I too was reluctant. Then I thought, knowing Sushant, he was one to take every challenge head-on. "

He added, "And so I decided that while it is scary to step into his shoes & live up to audience expectations… it is scarier to NOT even try. And so I did what I felt he would do if he was in my position. I took the challenge. When the team told me they wanted someone who was earnest so that we could all tell a story that was a fitting homage to Sushant’s legacy… I decided to give it my all and leave the rest to the audience and to The All-Mighty."
