The very lovable Kumkum aka Juhi Parmar is back to work after a much deserved break, to play the very young and vibrant Kumkum. Here is the star talking about her break and her reincarnated character in the serial, Kumkum Ek Pyara Sa Bandhan..

First of all, welcome back.
Thank you so much, I really needed this break, but frankly speaking, I did not get the long break that I had dreamt of. Kumkum Ek Pyara Sa Bandhan needed me and I had to be back earlier than expected.

How does it feel to be back now?
It really feels good, and we are confident that the viewers will love this new phase wherein they will see a fresh new love story between Sumit and Kumkum.

How was your break and where had you been?
Well, the break was refreshing and I got to spend time with my whole family and thereís nothing like it. We had been to Mysore and then we spent few days at Coorg, in a resort called ĎOrange Countyí. We had an amazing time there, and I really cherished the stay.

Any fascinating moment in Coorg that you would like to share with your fans?
My mother is a very good badminton player; she has been a great sports person from her young age. Itís always been a challenge for us to play like her. So we played some great matches there, split our family into two teams and enjoyed a lot. It always happened that I and my sister took to my motherís side and played.

Coming back to Kumkum, how does it feel to play young all over again?
Thatís the amazing part now. I canít tell you how happy I am. I donít have people calling me ĎMaaí and falling at my feet now, the sight of which I always hated. And to tell you, Kumkum Ek Pyaara Sa Bandhan has been the only serial wherein the same actors worked their way from 20-50 and then, again came back from their 50ís to play the role of a 20 year old. This is exactly what Hussain and I get to play here.

How would you describe your characters now?
Well, I will not say much about how Kumkum looks now, that is something that you need to watch. But I can only say that the audience who have till now seen the matured love story of Sumit and Kumkum who fell in love only after marriage, will see a totally different love story now, something that will blow them off their feet. We both are college-goers, very young, so all will be a different scenario now.

Do you relate to your new character of Kumkum?
Oh yes! I can surely say that I am exactly like the new Kumkum. I feel happy to be playing myself on screen now (smiles).

Do you miss the younger generation on sets?
No, not at all!! I am very much glad that I am playing my age, so I really do not miss my kids on screen (laughs). We are still in touch with all of them, we meet up and hang around, so allís in the game.

Talking of the elder generation, will we be seeing them even now?
Yes, they are the backbone of the Wadhwa family. So Dadaji, Dadiji, Veena and Kul are very much there. They form the basic connectivity link between Sumit and Kumkum.

How will Sumit-Kumkum romance flower now?
That is for all to watch!! But let me tell you, love is in the air, and if the viewers feel that the best phase of Sumit-Kumkum romance is over, you will be in for some surprise. The USP of the show has always been the love between Sumit and Kumkum, so we will offer a refreshing love story that will make the viewers fall in love with Ďloveí all over again!
