Young and talented beauty Sukirti Kandpal, who rose to fame with show Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani, is making a comeback on the small screen after a span of two years.
The actress will be seen playing the lead role of Alia Shroff in Sony Entertainment Television’s new offering Story 9 Months Ki.
The show, a romcom, is an accidental love story of the urbane Alia and desi Sarang, bound together by the unexpected miracle of IVF.
Talking about her new show, Sukirti shares, “Story 9 Months Ki is extremely well written. The characters are well defined. This is one of the path-breaking concept wherein a girl who is strong and opts for IVF without worrying what society would think about her. I would say Alia is very much like me, she is independent and strong. The USP of the show is the novelty of the concept. The execution and writing part will be loved by the audiences. I also think women will connect with the character Alia and would relate to the show.”
Were you skeptical to play a mother on-screen? She adds, “There are a lot of young mothers like Kylie Jenner. The concept of mom has also evolved a lot. Rather than just being a mom, there is so much more to my character Alia. Also, the story is not just being a mother but it is the process of IVF. Also, it is a love story between Alia and Sarang so technically, I won’t be a mom at the beginning of the show.”
Commenting on her free time while being away from TV, she says, “The time was very productive. I spent a lot of time with my family. I had purchased a new house in Mumbai so I did give my creative inputs so the interior is lavish and amazing. I was involved in the services of taking care of stray animals, which I am very passionate about.”
