‘Kumkum Bhagya’ has been an audience favourite due to its intriguing plot and authentic portrayal of relatable characters like Ranbir (Krishna Kaul), Prachi (Mugdha Chaphekar), Rhea (Tina Philip), Shahana (Aparna Mishra) and Aaliya (Reyhna Pandit).
Having kept the audience hooked with various fresh and exciting twists and turns, the show recently got its viewers to witness that Prachi is finally aware of Siddharth’s truth about her sister being kidnapped by Rhea and Aaliya and is trying to bring it to Ranbir’s notice.
In the upcoming episodes, viewers will witness how Ranbir tricks the goons who kidnapped Rhea and return to the Kohli mansion. Since Prachi is in her disguise look of Basanti, out with Ranbir and not present in her Sangeet ceremony, Dadi (Smita Shetty) decides to save her from Pallavi (Khyaati Keswani) and asks Siddharth (Kushagra Nautiyal) to dress up like Prachi in a saree with ‘Ghunghat’ and join the Sangeet ceremony.
To ensure Kushagra pulls off wearing a saree, he went the extra mile to get all the details right. He took out time to watch a few films like ‘Aunty No 1’ and ‘Chachi 420’ in order to give authenticity to this disguise and the nuances of wearing a saree.
Kushagra mentioned, “This is the first time in my life, I have worn a saree. When I got to know about this track, I was really excited as well as nervous. But I decided to take up this as a challenge and give my 100 percent.
Before shooting this sequence, I watched a few Hindi films in which the hero is playing the role of a female like ‘Aunty No 1’ and ‘Chachi 420’. To don the saree these films helped me get the nuances of wearing the saree right. I am really happy that I was able to pull off the sequence decently well”.
While Siddharth is enjoying his new look, wait till you watch all the upcoming drama where Prachi, Siddharth, and Shahana are trying to bring the reality of Rhea and Aaliya in front of the Kohli family.
