The race for replacing actress Ankita Lokhande for the role of Archana in “Pavitra Rishta” seems to be getting hotter and hotter with new names cropping up with each passing day. While there were earlier speculations about actress Shilpa Saklani Agnihotri being finalized for the role, later in the day news poured in about Balaji Telefilm’s loyalist and a favorite of Ekta Kapoor, actress Gautami joining the fray for the role.
And now the latest news is about one more actress Prachi Shah of “Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi” fame joining the list of actress for the said role. As per the sources Prachi is one of the strong contenders for the role.
Although quite a few names of Hindi and Marathi small screen shows have been auditioned for the role of Archana, the results have not turned out to be satisfactory. Hope that Ekta gets her Archana as soon as possible now with Shilpa, Prachi and Gautami being shortlisted.
