One of indian television’s most loved and popular serial Zee TV’s Kumkum Bhagya (2014 – present), produced by TV czarina Ekta Kapoor is going to witness a new 2 years leap and for fans who have loved Abhi and Pragya’s onscreen chemistry and romantic moments always, this new leap is going to be totally different since this time around, Shabir Sriti open up on Kumkum Bhagya’s upcoming 2 year leap.
In their recent conversational exclusive interview with a leading digital entertainment portal, both Shabir Sriti open up on Kumkum Bhagya’s upcoming 2 year leap.
The serial which has been an audiences and fans family favorite show across Indian from past 7 years now thanks to its interesting plot filled with unexpected yet surprising twists and turns along with the remarkable performances and strong authentic portrayal by some of truly iconic characters like Abhishek Mehra aka Abhi (Shabir Ahluwalia), Pragya (Sriti Jha), Rhea (Pooja Banerjee), Aaliya (Reyhna Pandit), Ranbir (Krishna Kaul) and Prachi (Mugdha Chapekar). Even as the wedding track yet again between Abhi and Tanu has gotten the fans and audiences totally hooked and so the shows makers are all set to spice up the show by packing in an exciting new punch and so in the latest candid chat, Shabir Sriti open up on Kumkum Bhagya’s upcoming 2 year leap.
This is totally going to be a game changer 2 years leap as it’s going to completely change and turn the worlds of both Abhi and Pragya upside down with complete turnaround of Bhagya (fate / destiny) for both Abhi and Pragya. Recently we saw how Pragya convinced Abhi for getting engaged to Tanu so that Tanu takes her case back against Abhi and in meantime, we also see how entire Mehra family is in a race against time for getting proof to prove Abhi’s innocence and also stop this marriage from happening but there’s going to be sudden twist of fate as Pragya meets with a near fatal accident and ultimately going missing in the most crucial and pivotal episode before the leap and then the story will go in fast forward mode to straightaway 2 years later.
As this totally fresh chapter slowly unfolds itself post the leap, we see how Abhi is not the super charming, ambitious and dashing rockstar that he once was since he has taken this huge betrayal and debacle literally to his heart along with losing all his money and ultimately is a dejected drunk who sings occasionally in order to fund his addiction. On the flip side of coin, we would be seeing Pragya in a totally new and never seen before avatar post leap wherein she is going to be a well-known and reputed powerful figure in a multinational company thus adding a totally fresh perception and dimension to her character overall and here special mention to fact that Pragya’s transformation from a modest, humble, meek and next-door look to a strong, assertive and authoritative corporate professional who is always composed and self-assured on the exterior but with pain in her eyes will leave her fans awe-struck and shell shocked and to witness more of this, tune into Kumkum Bhagya on 18th June.
Speaking about the 2 year leap in this interview, Shabir Ahluwalia said, “I’m proud to be a part of the Kumkum Bhagya family entertaining audiences as Abhi for seven years now and I must say that the upcoming leap is going to be one of the most significant, exciting developments on the show. While we’ve had a 7-year leap and a generation leap in the past, this one will literally turn our lives upside down and leave our fans astonished”.
Specifically also opening up on the ongoing wedding track drama, Shabir shares, “The whole wedding drama will end on a cliff-hanger with Pragya meeting with an accident and the show taking a two-year leap. In the new chapter, I will be seen as a dejected man who’s lost all his passion in life. He will be seen as a fallen star with no money and no interest in fixing his life. Initially, his family was everything to him, but now he is least bothered and doesn’t care about anything but himself and his compulsive need for alcohol. To find out what could have possibly led Abhi to this state, viewers will have to wait and watch our upcoming leap!”.
Talking about the 2 year leap in KKB, Sriti Jha also added, “The leap holds a lot of excitement for our audiences as Abhi and Pragya’s Bhagyas are all set to change completely. While Abhi will be seen as a broken man who’s taken to the bottle, viewers will see my character turn into a powerful corporate professional at a multinational company in another country. I look forward to seeing the audience’s reaction to the leap”.
Whilst both Shabir and Sriti are really excited for this 2 year leap which would totally turn around the tables for both Abhi and Pragya drastically, we can say that Abhi is going to be facing tons of new challenges from then on with questions plaguing like what got him into this totally self destructive mode and will he ever overcome his addiction in order to reclaim his lost glory and recognition and also what events took place within the two years which resulted in Pragya becoming a powerful businesswoman and strong authoritative figure at a multinational company and also how will Abhi react after seeing Pragya in her new avatar.
To know answers to these questions, keep watching Kumkum Bhagya from 18th June onwards.
