We know you love the character of Bulbul on popular television show Kumkum Bhagya. But you will be disappointed to know that the girl who plays Bulbul, the cute Mrunal Thakur, has decided to call it quits as far as the show is concerned. She has decided to opt out of Kumkum Bhagya, reports DNA. Mrunal as Bulbul gives way to actress Kajol Srivastava, who has been seen on shows like Mooh Boli Shaadi and Badii Devrani as well. But obviously, Kajol will not be seen in a western avatar but like Bulbul’s only. It remains to be seen how she would vie for the audiences’ attention in a role where Mrunal became so popular among TV viewers.

Why did Mrunal leave?

Apparently, the 23-year-old actress who hails from Nagpur, was upset over being sidelined on the show. Kumkum Bhagya in recent months has concentrated more on the track of Pragya (Sriti Jha) and Abhi (Shabbir Ahluwalia) rather than Bulbul who was married off in the show. So, Mrunal decided to leave Kumkum Bhagya and may concentrate on other shows. Mrunal was also seen with her writer partner Sharad Tripathi on Nach Baliye 7. The couple was eliminated on the dance reality show.

Kajol reportedly told The Times of India about playing Bulbul on Kumkum Bhagya, “I am excited about my role. Mrunal did a good job, and yes, I feel the pressure as I step into her shoes. I will play the part my way and not imitate the former actress. It might be an existing character in the show, but for me, it’s a new character.”

Well, all the best to Kajol Srivastava and let’s see how fans of Mrunal Thakur like her! (Photos: Facebook)
