She handles all the chores of her house and makes her mother comfortable. She was married to Manav but due to unfavourable circumstances got divorced. She leaves for Bangalore and comes back after 1 year, completing her education. She worked as supervisor in Satish & Dharmesh's company and was engaged to co-worker Jaywant due to her family's wish that she move on. satish finds out the truth about jaywant being a bad guy and tells archana.She has now got remarried to Manav who she loves. For a while, she was hated by her sisters for re-marrying Manav.

Manav Deshmukh (Sushant Singh Rajput) - is the leading male character. He is about 29 years old. He works as a mechanic in a garage whole day to earn a living for his family. He too is not a much educated guy. He has no dreams of his own. He only dreams of earning & supporting his family financially. He loves Archana, but had to divorce her. He later gets a job in Satish & Dharmesh's company with Archana as his supervisor. He finds out the truth about jaywant and later reunites with archana.

Varsha Joshi (Priya Marathe)- is 25 year old sister of Archana. She is married to Satish. At first her married life seemed threatened when her ex-beau Ashwin started blackmailing her but everything now is at peace. She is a career woman, but took off work for 2 years after her marriage and is now adamant on returning which is why she doesn't want to have a baby, much to her mother-in-law's dismay. However after receiving an interview, she discovers she is pregnant. Later she has an abortion which creates problems with her sasural but satish forgives her at Archana's house. Varsha has had problems after her abortion and doctor has told Satish that Varsha can never be pregnant again. Varsha is shattered after hearing this, she overhears this in a conversation between Vaishali and Archana.

Vaishali Jaipurwala (Prarthana Behere) - is the youngest sister of Archana whose age is 23 years. She always supports Archana and her mother just like Varsha. She is now married to Dharmesh Jaipurwala, Satish's business partner. Vaishali finds out of Dharmesh's secret marriage and is shattered.

Vinod Karanjkar (Parag Tyagi) - is Archana's brother, who is about 32 years old. He is married to Manjusha. He earns very low in his house. He has two daughters. Because of Manjusha's desire who can't seem to fit in a joint family, he shifted out in a separate flat. He has returned back to his parents' home now. He is often influenced by his wife and participates in humiliating Manav. Archana severes ties with him after knowing that Manjusha accused Manav of stealing money. He is naive and stupid and always supports Manjusha not knowing of her hidden motives.

Manjusha Karanjkar (Swati Anand) - is about 31 year old sister-in-law of Archana. She has very unoptimistic approach towards mother-in-law and Vinodís sisters. She always gets into fights with Sulochana because she refuses to believe the wrongs said against her mother and brother. She also believes that everyone in the house blames her for their deeds. She always cooks some devious plans to hurt Vinod's family and has been exposed so many times. Her in-laws always forgive her and hope that she will improve. She particularly despises Manav and Archana. Manjusha is a greedy woman and ultimately wants her in-laws assets to herself alone. She tried to frame Manav for stealing 100,000 rupees from Vinod. Later she is exposed by Archana and told to leave the house. She then comes back but everyone is still mad.

Sushant Singh who essays the role of Prem's brother Preet in Kis Desh has bagged the male lead's role in Zee's Pavitra Rishtha..

Sushant Singh Rajput, one of the chocolate boys of television who essays the role of Preet in Star Plus' Kis Desh Main Hai Mera Dil has bagged the meaty role of the lead in Balaji Telefilms' upcoming show, Pavitra Rishtha on Zee TV.

As reported earlier, Ankita Lokhande essays the role of the protagonist Archana, who is from the middle class society, well past her marriageable age, and is not getting a good match as she is not well-educated.

According to our source, "Sushant is cast opposite Ankita, and he plays the character of Manav who is from a lower middle class family. He is a family oriented guy, a person who can do anything for his people. He works in a garage, and helps run his family. He dotes on his parents, brother and sister and loves them a lot. In other words, he is basically a Lord Ram like character who is a sincere son and brother".

As reported earlier, Raj Singh who was seen in Jyoti and Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat plays Manav's brother, Swati Anand of Kasamh Se fame plays his bhabhi and Yamini of Tuj Sang fame plays his sister.

Sushant plays the adorable brother of Prem (Harshad Chopra) in Kis Desh.

We tried calling Sushant but he simply refused to comment on this..

Pavitra Rishtha on Zee TV launches on 1st June at the 9 PM slot..

Get to know the family members of Manav from Zee TVís Pavithra Rishta.

Zee TV's Pavithra Rishta produced by Balaji Telefilm's is introducing the family of the male lead Manav( Sushant Singh Rajput).

According to our source, "Ajay Wadhavkar who played the role of Ganpat Havaldar in the popular DD show of yester years, Nukkad plays the father of Manav. However the mother of the boy is yet to be finalized."

And as reported earlier Raj Singh seen in Jyoti and Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat plays Manav's brother Sachin. Yamini seen in Tujh Sang plays the sister Nandita.

We called up Ajay Wadhavkar who has been part of television Hindi and Marathi cinema for a long time to know more about his role. "My character name is Damodar. He had been a theatre person in the past, but now nobody recognizes him. Today he is a total drunkard but is good at heart. He has a dominating wife who does not give him any money. This is where his son Manav comes in. He is very close to him and helps him a lot," says Ajay.

If sources are to be believed, Archana's (Ankita Lokhande) marriage will get finalized to someone else this week, and Manav who has fallen for her will get to know this.

The family of Manav will be entering the show sometime this week.
