Here’s what the actors had to say about the resumption of shoots…
Commenting on what’s brewing in Kumkum Bhagya, actor Sriti Jha aka Pragya revealed, “It feels fantastic that we’re soon going to resume shoots. The story of Prachi and Ranbir is on the brink of a major turning point. Their silence could spell separation for the duo while their confession of love for each other could be the beginning of another true romance viewers have been waiting to watch. We are getting ready to shoot for this turning point and I cannot wait to be back on the sets with my Kumkum Bhagya family. The upcoming track is going to be very interesting and I hope the audience will find it refreshing and entertaining.”
As the new episodes of Kundali Bhagya will unravel the fate of her love for Karan, Shraddha Arya aka Preeta said, “Preeta isn’t sure if she should let her head rule her heart or vice versa when it comes to Karan. But the all-new episodes may bring forth a more determined Preeta who will open Karan’s eyes to the conspiracies plotted by miscreants just to wreak havoc in their relationship. We are yet to shoot how and when will Preeta get to reveal Sherlyn’s truth to save her love. But I’m sure this revelation will be worth the wait for my viewers as I urge my fans to drop everything and tune in to the exciting new episodes of Kundali Bhagya.”
Actor Reem Shaikh who plays Kalyani in Tujhse Hai Raabta said, “I am very excited to shoot for a new turn of events in Kalyani and Malhar’s life. While they both are in love, they cannot see eye to eye in their parental approach. They both want a bone marrow for their son Shlok but their methods of getting the same are very different. The story forward is intriguing and full of surprising revelations that will shock and thrill our audiences.”
Kanika Mann who plays the title role in Guddan Tumse Na Ho Payega shared, “I am thrilled and nostalgic to return to my sets. This show has been the biggest milestone in my life. The storyline has always kept its audience engaged and the new episodes will be even more interesting with exciting twists and turns.”
