Astha Agarwal aka Prathana of Kya Haal Mr Panchal is back with a bang. She is playing an important negative character in Colors’ show Shumbaharmbh.

“At first many thought that Jharna was the lead for she would flirt with lead guy Raja (Akshit Sukhija). But, being money-minded, she eventually got married to Mehul (Aarjav Trivedi, while Rani (Mahima Makwana) wed Raja.”

“Now she is unhappy with her married life and conspires with her mother in law, Kirtida Reshammiya (Chhaya Vora) to make Rani’s life hell. There is also the new extra martial affair plot”

“I love playing Jharna for I am getting to be a Gujju bombshell. I am sure I can give fashion tips on how to play around with brighter colors.”

Here I will thank producer Shashi Sumeet Mittal for giving me such a huge opportunity. “Astha who has been around TV for a while first found viewer connect as the shudh hindi speaking Prathana in Kya Haal Mr Panchal.

Astha has no problem being bad on-screen, “I have played vamps in my other show Ek Tha Raja Ek Thi Rani etc.”

“I love the online trolling for it means that I am doing a good job.”

You had been away from TV after Kya Haal (Star Bharat) wrapped up, “Yes, I wanted time off to be with family. I also wanted to work with bigger channels.”

When asked about the average ratings of Shubharambh she says “Our show began with 1.4, which was good, but since then our numbers have not gone higher.”

“I hope that we, too, create a magic like thr other Colors show Choti Sarrdaarni which has become a runaway hit thanks to the fresh story line and performances. I am sure our ratings will undoubtedly rise in the coming days and weeks on the back of exciting twists and turns which keep you on the edge of your seats.”
