Kumkum Bhagya is one of the longest-running TV shows on Indian Television. The show started on 15th April 2014 and continues to rule the hearts of the audiences. With two generation leaps, the show still provides a different storyline which is enjoyed by the ardent fans of the show.

The show started with Sriti Jha and Shabbir Ahluwali in the lead roles. The concept of the show was initially about a middle-class girl Pragya and a rockstar Abhi coming together in a marriage fighting all odds. The show took a generation leap with Mugdha Chaphekar and Krishna Kaul as the new lead. The show has yet again taken a leap. Have a look at the cast of the show post the recent generation leap.

1. Mugdha Chaphekar plays the character of Prachi 

Post the recent generation leap in Kumkum Bhagya, Prachi played by Mugdha Chaphekar is seen settling down in Mumbai with the Tandon family. As their financial conditions are poor, she starts a catering service named Kumkum Bhagya to support her family's financial needs. She lives with Poorvi who has grown up having traits of Ranbir. Khushi gets married to a rich family and blames Prachi for both Akshay and Ranbir's death.
