A little bird tells us that romance is brewing on the sets of ZEE’s Pavitra Rishta. Rithvik Dhanjani and Asha Negi who play the lead pair Arjun and Purvi are said to be seeing each other in real life. They are shown to be in love with each another but are married to other partners in the serial, but offscreen the two are apparently are a couple.
A source says that Rithvik is very protective about Asha. “They not only spend a lot of time with each other, but whenever they are rehearsing or shooting, Rithvik takes a lot of care of Asha.”
Even the ratings of the show have improved considerably with the GenNext tracks. Earlier, on the same sets, love had bloomed between between the then lead pair of the serial
Ankita Lokhande (Archana) and Sushant Singh Rajput (Manav). Sushant opted out of the show a couple of years ago, and recently there was news about Ankita also following suit. However, a source tells us that Ankita has taken a two-month break as she wants to be with Sushant to promote his first film Kai Po Che.
“After that, she will be back in Pavitra Rishta,” adds the source.
