Do not miss Kumkum Bhagya, Every Monday – Friday at 9 PM, Only on Zee TV!

Shabbir’s a Football buff …!


Kumkum Bhagya’s lead actor – Shabbir Ahluwalia, talks about hectic shoots and his love for the much adored game!


If there’s one actor who’s been bitten by the FIFA bug, then it would have to be the lead of Zee TV’s Kumkum Bhagya– Shabbir Ahluwalia, who essays the character of Rockstar Abhi on the show. From shooting day-in and day-out for the show to going back and catching up on the World Cup, Shabbir is one amongst the various Telly town celebs who is a football fan and does not like to miss a single match.


While Shabbir ensures he watches all the matches which are usually telecast late-night, he also ensures that he is at his professional best and does not turn up looking sleep deprived or late for the shoots. Given that the show is currently airing Abhi and Pragya’s (played by Sriti Jha) wedding track which is a highpoint, it requires him to be on the sets at odd hours. Even though he shoots at odd times, Shabbir, instead of cribbing and complaining or asking to leave early, records the matches and watches them each time he gets a chance to. Talking about the team he supports, Shabbir said, “I love football and I am enjoying the matches. I am supporting Germany, I also like Netherlands, especially Robin Van Persie – he has been phenomenal so far. Belgium is a team to watch out for, they are the dark horses of this World Cup.”


While Abhi and Pragya are now married on the show, we will soon see their Reception in the upcoming episodes where the newlywed couple will be blessed by various Zee TV artists. Inviting Purab (played by Arjit Taneja) for the wedding, Abhi tries to send out a message that Purab should now instead think of getting married to his sister – Aaliya (played by Shikha Singh). With all the drama unfolding in the upcoming episodes, there is a lot for viewers to look forward to!
