Pavitra Rishta 2 has gone on floors and will stream in some time on ZEE5 and AltBalaji. However, the decision has not pleased everyone, with Sushant Singh Rajput fans up in arms, calling for a boycott of the show, and trolling both Shaheer Sheikh and Ankita Lokhande left, right and centre. They can neither seem to come to terms with the former replacing SSR nor are they pleased about the latter agreeing to costar with someone else as Manav, and have made their distinct displeasure against both as also the makers of Pavitra Rishta 2 felt on social media. Look at some of the tweets below:
In today's WTF Wednesday story, we'd dearly like to know if these so-called Sushant Singh Rajput fans are actually Sushant Singh Rajput fans because no true fan would tarnish the legacy of their idol like this. Besides all manner of stench they've spread for more than a year on social media, it's beyond reason or logic that anything a deceased actor has done is out of bounds after she/he has passed away. Never before it has happened anywhere in the world, and never would such bizarre conditions be expected in future, too, well...unless, Sushant fans are in the picture.
Even living actor's works are remade time and again, and truth be told (if we really must get into harsh facts to drive basic common sense home), then the copyright of an actor's work doesn't live or die with said actor, but with the producer of that work, and by those grounds, Ekta Kapoor is well within her rights to take the story of Pavitra Rishta forward.
Now, let's come to the so-called emotional part of this inexplicable chapter as we know that's what these newly sprung SSR fans are going for: Well, how are they honouring the memory of the idol they claim to love by themselves dragging his name into all sorts of controversies at every opportunity, without the man being around to even voice his opinion? And do they really believe that he'd have wanted his work to remain stagnant and his costars to not team up with others? If they actually think that, then logic is truly lost on them, isn't it?
Finally, and most importantly, we'd like to know where were all these so-called Sushant Singh Rajput fans when we was alive or when his movies like Detective Byomkesh Bakshy, Raabta, Sonchiriya not only flopped, but also took poor openings at the box-office. If only they had made their voices positively known then as they do negatively now, who knows, things may have turned out differently.
