Zee TV’s Kumkum Bhagya is all set to take a leap of 20-years. As per the current storyline, Kiara has been kidnapped by Nikhil and both Abhi (Shabbir Ahluwalia) and Pragya (Sriti Jha) have been making their individual efforts to search for their daughter. However, Pragya turns to King (Mishal Raheja) for help when Abhi refuses to pay Nikhil the ransom money. But King makes his own plans. He is so in love with Pragya and Kiara that he makes a deal with Nikhil to double the ransom and take Kiara along with him to London so that Pragya too will follow him. Kumkum Bhagya March 12, 2019 Written Update Full Episode: Nikhil Threatens to Hurt Kiara after Abhi and Pragya Fail to Save Their Daughter

However, in the midst of this, Abhi and Pragya welcome their twin daughters Prachi and Rhea. For a while now, there has been much speculation with regards to who will be playing these characters after the show takes a 20-year leap.

Yesterday it was reported that Splitsvilla fame Naina Singh had bagged the role of Rhea and actress Kirtida Mistry was locked to play Prachi in the show. However, Bombay Times reports that not Kirtida but Satrangi Sasural actress Mugdha Chaphekar has landed the role.

Mugdha has been a part of shows like Solhah Singaarr, Dharti Ka Veer Yoddha Prithviraj Chauhan, Sajan Re Jhoot Mat Bolo, Satrangi Sasural, and was last seen in Colors’ medical drama Savitri Devi College and Hospital. This will be the third leap in Kumkum Bhagya’s storyline so far.
