Remember the shy, timid guy Manav from Pavitra Rishta? Yes, we're talking about the now chocolate boy of Bollywood, Sushant Singh Rajput. The young actor is planning to return to small screen after delivering many successful films like Kai Po Che, MS Dhoni: An Untold Story and Kedarnath. While talking to the media recently, Sushant revealed that he is keen on working with Ekta Kapoor again. For the uninitiated, Ekta Kapoor had launched Sushant in Pavitra Rishta back in 2009. It had Ankita Lokhande in the lead role.
Sushant Singh Rajput was talking to the media during the book launch of Natasha Malpani Oswal's Boundless in Mumbai.
When asked if he would like to return to small screen with Ekta Kapoor's TV show, he said, "Why only on television? I am ready to work with her on any platform. Apart from my family, if there is one person who has been instrumental in my career, it is Ekta (Kapoor) madam. So, if she tells me do anything, I will follow her."
In Pavitra Rishta, Sushant Singh Rajput played the role of Manav opposite Ankita Lokhande who played his wife. While working in the TV show, Sushant and Ankita fell for each other. After being in relationship for years and even living together, the duo parted ways in 2017. They were rumoured to be getting married in 2017, but the fate had different plans for them. Later, Sushant was rumoured to be dating Kriti Sanon, however, that turned out to be untrue. The actor will now be seen in Shraddha Kapoor starrer Chhichhore.
