MUMBAI: Zee TV’s consistently top-rated fiction show Kumkum Bhagya has been ruling the television space as everyone’s favourite dinnertime soap for the past 5 years. From making a place in the viewers’ hearts to having everyone pine for them to unite, the show’s lead protagonists Pragya and Abhi have emerged as TV’s most sought-after lovers. Having been through their roller coaster ride of emotions, relationship issues, complications within the family, negative forces that conspired to keep them apart, it is time for yet another journey to begin as the show takes a 20-year leap and introduces viewers to the next generation of the Mehras – Abhi-Pragya’s twin daughters. Post the leap, the track will focus on Abhi, Pragya and their young college-going daughters. Essaying the role of Prachi will be actor Mugdha Chaphekar and on the other hand, Naina Singh has been roped in to play the role of Rhea. Though twins by birth Rhea and Prachi are two strong personalities who are complete opposites of each other. On one hand, Prachi is a complete replica of Pragya in terms of her simplicity, practicality, and sensitivity, on the other hand, Rhea is born in the lap of luxury making her a somewhat spoilt, pampered, over-entitled daughter of a successful rockstar.
Speaking about being a part of the show, Mugdha said, “I am making a comeback on Zee TV after 4 years and what better way to start a new journey than the extremely popular show Kumkum Bhagya. I have been an ardent follower of the show and I am glad that I am going to be a part of it. Prachi’s character is of a simple girl who is simple, sensitive and responsible much like her mother and puts her family before everything. I hope that the audience enjoy the new twist.”
Furthermore, Naina added, “This is the first time I am foraying into fiction television and while I am excited, I am also in frenzy as it’s completely a new space for me. Naina is a complete brat born with a silver spoon. The story ahead will be filled with many twists and turns, and drama and I am looking forward to it.”
What will happen when these two strikingly opposite, yet headstrong personalities come face to face? Will they be able to bring Abhi and Pragya together for good? Only time will tell!
