7 Years of Kumkum Bhagya: Shabir Ahluwalia and Sriti Jha get emotional as the show crosses another milestone
The family drama that explores and brings a range of emotions as well as the deepest intricacies of human relationships has kept the viewers hooked all this while through several interesting twists and turns in its storyline! In fact, Kumkum Bhagya has also managed to successfully reinstate the belief that opposites do attract by showcasing how despite having contrasting personalities, its lead protagonists are inseparable. The love story of the flamboyant, rockstar Abhi and the bespectacled, girl-next-door Pragya has been welcomed by the audiences from the very outset. The romantic track between the gen-next stars, Rhea, Prachi and Ranbir is also widely appreciated by viewers. This relatability and belief factor has been instrumental in the show’s success over the years. In fact, the power of the show’s emotional quotient is evident in the passionate response it receives each time Abhi-Pragya or Prachi-Ranbir part or reunite!
As Kumkum Bhagya completes 7 glorious years, Shabir Ahluwalia who plays the role of Abhi got nostalgic and said, “Kumkum Bhagya is not just a show, but a feeling for me because it is very close to my heart. I’ve been associated with it for 7 years now, but it doesn’t feel like it’s been so long. I must say that all these years have been a breeze and the entire unit including the technicians and actors are like a family for me. Generally, you hear people saying this when the show is coming to an end, but our case is different. When you’re around the same people for 7 years, you know them even better, as you have seen them at their best and their worst. I have to add that the writers and the creative team are fantastic, and they’ve held all of us together. I’ve been associated with the producers, Balaji Telefilms for nearly two decades and they are like a family to me. As we complete seven years, I would like to say Thank You Ekta for believing in me, Shobha aunty for being there always and Jeetu Uncle, you’re a Rockstar and always guide us for the best. I also want to thank Zee TV for giving us such a great platform to showcase Kumkum Bhagya and being a fabulous channel to work with. Last but the most important, Kumkum Bhagya is what it is today because of all our fans, so thank you so much to all of you for your love and support.”
Sriti Jha, who plays the role of Pragya also took a walk down memory lane and shared a reel with the memories of the show on her social media and added, “The last seven years have been the best years of my life by far... my heart is a puddle of joy today I have met little pieces of my heart on kumkum bhagya... it has taught me the true meaning of serendipity... there can’t be a happier conincidence than bringing together of some of the most amazing people Most of all thank you @ektarkapoor for making this magic happen... every single person who has been on the show has a special place in my life... I can go on and on and on but my vocabulary fails me Har khushi shabdo me bayaan nahi hoti... @shabirahluwalia what a pleasure it is to have front row seats to the magic you create between action and cut and beyond And the fans... tum logo ne to din bana diya itni yaadein taza karke... sabko dher dher dher saara pyaar Ruthe ruthe to khuda bhi ruthe #cue for chorus #7yearsofkumkumbhagya P.s: mujhe aata nahi thik se reel banana lekin mohobbat me bohot himmat hoti hai... galat hi sahi yehi hai jo hai ❤️❤️❤️”
