Sriti Jha, the beautiful and talented lead actress of the much-acclaimed show, Kumkum Bhagya, recently recited a beautiful poem 'To Like? Or Love?' at Spoken Fest organized by Kommune, a performing arts collective. In this poem, the actress very beautifully expresses how trapped she feels by the intense emotional burden that love brings. Kommune India recently dropped the video online and we of course loved it! Sriti, in her poem, uses Puchhkas as a metaphor to explain the captive audience that how she felt too suffocated and confined in forced love and how she rejected the beautiful people around her because of it. Sriti received huge appreciation when her talk was posted on social media. Kumkum Bhagya Leap: Not Kirtida Mistry But Mugdha Chaphekar Bags The Shabbir Ahluwalia-Sriti Jha Starrer!
