Kratika plays the role of a girl from Bhopal opposite Gurmeet Chaudhry in a show that delves into the dynamics of re-marriage
She set the battlefield ablaze with her courage-Kratika Sengar blew viewer’s minds as the sword wielding Rani Laxmibai in ZEE TV’s historical drama Jhansi Ki Rani. She is returning to the silver screen, playing the lead in ZEE TV’s next primetime offering ‘Punar Vivah’-coming soon.
Punar Vivah is a mature, progressive show that sensitively captures the journey of a man and a woman who are brave enough to give love a second chance after their first marriages fail. The show delves into the dynamics of re-marriage, showcasing the trials and tribulations that are a part of re-adjusting to a second life partner. What makes the re-marriage even more challenging is the fact that the man and the woman in question are both parents to young children. Will the two be able to bring happiness to each others’ lives and feel complete once again? Will the two feel the same intensity and excitement that they had experienced in their first brush with love? Will their children be able to come to terms with the idea of having a new parent enter their lives? Only time will tell!
Speaking of her new role, Kratika said, “I received immense appreciation for the role of Rani Laxmibai so much so that people still recognize me as Jhansi Ki Rani in public places, months after the show has gone off air. After having essayed such a formidable historical figure, it’s very interesting to be playing the mature role of a contemporary Indian woman Smriti who is the mother of a young child and on the threshold of a re-marriage. The idea of giving life a second chance and attempting to find happiness all over again is what appealed to me the most. I’ll give the role my best shot and I hope the audience accepts me as Smriti and gives me as much love as they did when I played Jhansi Ki Rani.”
