Television actress Mugdha Chaphekar recently entered Zee TV show Kumkum Bhagya. The daily soap opera took a generation leap in March 2019. In a plot twist, Abhi and Pragya separated, splitting their twin daughters too. Mugdha plays the older sister Prachi, who grows up with Pragya in Hoshiyarpur. Last week, in an exclusive conversation with us, Mugdha told us how she and her onscreen mother Sriti Jha are very similar.
When asked if there are any similarities she shares with Sriti, Mugdha told us, “Definitely. Loads of them I’d say. Because we share a lot of similar interest – be it books or films of songs. And we have this amazing person who has kept us connected in some or the other way, is Supriya Shukla. She played my mother on one of the shows, so we have some or the other connection and that was the icing on the cake. We have a lot of similar things, we get to know more about them when we talk. It’s comforting and a good thing.” (sic)
For those who walked in late, Mugdha has earlier worked in Zee TV serial Satrangi Sasural. Mugdha and Supriya have shared screen space in a show previously, and the actress is as a mother figure to Mugdha in real life.
Mugdha currently plays Prachi Mehra, elder daughter of Abhi and Pragya. The latest episodes saw Prachi coming to Delhi for her higher education. She ends up meeting her younger sister Riya (Naina Singh), who has grown up with their father Abhi. However, Prachi and Riya don’t get along and always find themselves at loggerheads. After Prachi ended up in jail because of Naina, Pragya too travels to Delhi to rescue her daughter. On the other hand, Abhi and Prachi have come closer but neither of them is aware of their father-daughter relationship.
