Production

Casting

Sushant Singh Rajput who was playing the parallel lead in Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil of StarPlus was cast as Manav. Zee TV did not accept him for casting as Manav as he was a parallel lead of the show in their rival channel. But Producer Ekta Kapoor convinced the channel to accept him.[6] In November 2011 Rajput quit the series and was replaced by Hiten Tejwani.[7] However, during the final of the series on 25 October 2014, Tejwani paved way for Rajput who appeared in the final episode as Manav.[8][9]

Schedule

The show's time slot was changed from 21:00 to 18:30 on 15 April 2014 and the 21:00 slot was taken by Kumkum Bhagya, also produced by Ekta Kapoor.[10]

Reception

Around late 2008, producer Ekta Kapoor and her production house Balaji Telefilms declined when the ratings and popularity of all her hit soaps of the 2000s decreased and were axed and also when newly launched ones performed poorly. Since then most channels did not accept her to work. It was due to the chance given by Zee TV for this series, the career of Kapoor and her production house was revived when it became one of the top-rated Hindi television programs.[11][12]

Accolades

Pavitra Rishta received several awards and nominations. Lokhande and Rajput received multiple awards for their roles Archana and Manav in the Best Actress and Best Actor categories, as has Nadkarni in the Best Negative Actress category and Ekta Kapoor in the Best Serial category.
