Agree or not, one of the reasons you look forward to Kumkum Bhagya every night (on weekdays) is the gorgeous Pragya Arora. Actress Sriti Jha plays the gorgeous better half Pragya to actor Shabir Ahluwalia’s rockstar Abhishek ‘Abhi’ Mehra on the Zee TV show. The show first aired in April 2014, and there have been numerous plot twists and turns in Abhi and Pragya’s lives ever since. On the personal front, Pragya’s character too has undergone a major transformation.
Off late, Kumkum Bhagya witnessed two major developments – Abhi and Pragya’s reunion after a seven-year leap and Pragya getting pregnant with twins post another storyline jump of two months! But from what we know, trouble is set to soon come knocking on Abhigya’s doorstep. Reports doing the rounds of the internet suggest that Abhi and Pragya could allegedly lose their daughter Kiara, and also separate thereafter. While we wait on further details on the leap in Kumkum Bhagya, here’s taking a looking at how Sriti’s role has evolved over the years, take a look:
1. From a simpleton, girl-next-door, Pragya is now a courageous and bold bahu
When the show had started out, Pragya was this young and compassionate girl. Her compassion and affection for those around her are still intact, but she has come a long way from being the one who married someone she didn’t love to protect her family. Pragya is now stronger than ever and capable of taking challenges heads on, all by herself.
2. You cannot take Pragya for a ride, not anymore
Post the seven-year leap, it feels like the Pragya we now see is a different person altogether. From being a wife to a rockstar who is highly egoistic, being tortured by his ex-lover and sister to handling and helping another artist’s business flourish – Pragya is in a different ball game altogether! Every time Tanu tried to harm Pragya, she knew how to give it back and boy, didn’t she?
3. A new maternal side to Mrs. Mehra was introduced with the arrival of her daughter Kiara
Who had imagined that Abhi and Pragya, who once hated each other, would have a daughter together? Pragya’s maternal side comes as little to no surprise for she has always looked out for those around her. Undoubtedly, her daughter is the sweetest girl about the Mehra household. Brought up with the same set of values, Kiara is not just understanding but also mature for her age. And that goes to speak volumes about Pragya as a woman!
4. Pragya’s fashion sense has taken a complete 180-degree turn from the chashmish girl to a stylish charmer
Grace is thy middle name, Pragya. Can we just take a moment to reflect on the beautiful, layered, boho and so in-vogue picks Pragya is seen wearing on the daily soap in recent times? In a departure from her fixation on pastels, we now see Pragya wear darker hues and bright pops. She has even moved on from her barely-there peachy makeup look to deep-kohled eyes, statement jewellery and trendy hairdos to compliment her beauty. That’s a big change right there if you ask us!
5. Pragya’s love for Abhi, however, remains unchanged
Pragya may have undergone a change of perception, attitude and clothing, but the one thing that hasn’t changed a bit is her love for Abhi. Epitomising unconditional and selfless love, Pragya continues to do everything in her power to protect and care for Abhi and his best interests. Her amazing journey has been full of hurdles, but none could come close to the ultimate romance shared between Abhi and Pragya!
