Aashka Goradia plays the role of Kumud in Kkusum (Sony).
As the daughter of Kkusum (Manasi Joshi Roy) and Abhay (Anuj Saxena) in the daily soap, Kumud has to contend with Kali (Rucha Gujarathi) in her affections for Garv (Chetan Hansraj).
At the moment Goradia is content playing Kumud "as there is no time left to take on any other assignment," she says.

How often do you say "I love you"?
At least 10 times a day, to my mother, father and to things I like to do and to people I like to be with.
Canadian Girl...I have nothing against you...no grudge...nothing...but you said that Kali prefers to wear traditional clothing and Kumud prefers Western clothing. This article proves you wrong. If I am not mistaken, cotton salwar kurtas and lehngas are traditional clothing. I also have a comment for Angadzgirl...The last question is "How often do you sayin 'I love you?'"...part of the answer is to my mother and father. You said that she doesn't talk about her parents or whatever and always talks about her boyfriend...she talked about her secret admirer once or twice...but here she's talking about her parents...
Now please don't get offended...i hope no one does...i was just trying to reach my point...i am not trying to hold a grudge against anyone...nor am i trying to act like im a miss know it all...i don't want to fight with anyone...just stating what i think. Hope this doesn't offend anyone.
