Sriti Jha is a Bollywood actress from India. The movie Kumkum Bhagya, in which she played Pragya Arora, catapulted her to stardom. Her first Indian Telly Award for Best Actress in a Lead Role went to her in recognition of her performance.
Many Kumkum Bhagya fans were surprised when Sriti Jha and her co-star Shabir Ahluwalia decided to leave the show earlier this year. Sriti and Shabir have played Pragya Arora and Abhishek Mehra since the show’s first episode in 2014. In an interview recently, Sriti, who will appear on the reality TV show in the near future, said that she made the decision to leave because she wanted to keep the show in mind.

This story needed to progress, and it’s done so beautifully, in her words. We had to move on because the story demanded it. It was for the good of the show. Since I’m very close to the people on the show right now and I’m in touch with the team, it’s amazing to see how well it’s doing. It’s not like I’ve lost any friends, because I’ve made so many new ones.
