Everyone who felt that Abhi was one of most boring guys around, here is a break
Time leaps on TV shows are passé. Keeping this in mind, the makers of Kumkum Bhagya are going in for a rewind. Yes, the show travels back in time for three years. We will see Abhi (Shabbir Ahluwalia) back as a snooty rock-star. He will behave like he did right at the start of the show. Sriti Jha aka Pragya will be the nerdy professor who is chosen to marry Abhi while Leena Jumani will be a hot model. Originally, it was Madhurima Tuli who played the part but now it will be Leena.
We are guessing that Nikhil Arya’s track will get a breather. It is the constant scheming of Nikhil and Tanu that has helped Kumkum Bhagya retain the top slot for four weeks now.
Leena told The Times of India, “I am very excited with the twists lined up. Abhi’s (Shabbir) accident results in partial amnesia wherein he can only recollect things in his life back where he hadn’t even met Pragya (Sriti), let alone fall in love with her. He remembers himself to be the rockstar dating his girlfriend, Tanu. My character was a supermodel while Pragya will once again be seen in her bespectacled geeky look and is out of Abhi’s life as she is held responsible for the attack on him.
So, in a way, it is a most unusual plot rewind where television shows mostly go for leaps. It’s interesting that ‘Kumkum Bhagya’ is one show that has not had any leap but now, goes onto create a unique, one-of-its-kind plot rewind.” A few weeks ago, there was rewind in Swaragini as well where Swara (Helly Shah) forgot that she was a girl married to Sanskar (Varun Kapoor) after a bullet injury.
