Anjum Fakih Talks About Quitting ‘Kundali Bhagya’
MUMBAI, (IANS) – Actress Anjum Fakih, who rose to fame after essaying the role of Srishti in the television serial ‘Kundali Bhagya’ and was a part of it since its inception, has quit the show after six years.
She said, “Kundali Bhagya and Shrishti have shaped me into who I am today. It has been an incredible chapter of my life, forging lasting friendships and imparting valuable lessons. The memories we created as a family are precious and extremely close to my heart. Playing Shrishti was a transformative experience, and I feel immensely proud when addressed as Shrishti rather than Anjum.”
She said the show had not only facilitated her growth as an artist, “but also connected me with an incredible fan base that supported me throughout. It served as a foundational experience, shaping me as an actor and providing opportunities for which I am forever grateful.”
She added: “This project has become a touchstone, a milestone, and I’ll carry its lessons and experiences into the next chapters of my career. My heartfelt gratitude goes to Ekta Kapoor for providing me with this wonderful opportunity.”
She was quick to clarify too that she hadn’t left the show for any other project. “Even before the show took a generational leap, I was in constant touch with the makers about my longing to grow as an artist. The decision to move on wasn’t easy, but it arose from a deep desire for growth and exploring new horizons in my career,” she said.
She is now busy shooting for the s how ‘Dabangii.’
