Parvarrish: Will Barkha Bisht be a better mom than Rupali Ganguly?

Rupali’s character Pinky Ahuja is a housewife and a mother of three kids. After playing this character on the idiot box for more than a year the actor has finally decided to quit the show to take on the same role in real life

Newly married Rupali Ganguly is looking forward to becoming a mom in her real life. But turning mommy means that her career now takes a back seat – at least for a while. The actor recently put down her papers and requested the production house to relieve her. The makers of the show Parvarrish – Kuchh Khattee Kuchh Meethi reluctantly agreed. After looking for a replacement among popular actors, the creative honchos settled on Barkha Bisht Sengupta.

Barkha was last seen in an item number in Punar Vivah – Ek Nayi Umeed, before which she was busy doing Bengali movies.

Rupali played the role of a modern mother who believed in giving her children space, trusting them and being their friend. She also worried unnecessarily and cried at the drop of a hat – just like the real life Rupali. There’s no one that could ace Rupali in the role and we are sure you agree.

Barkha has been great with the quintessential romantic roles. While we are sure the actor will give her 100 percent to the character of Pinky, she might not be convincing as the mother of three grown up children.

The show is taking a two year leap, which would mean Pinky’s daughter Raavi Ahuja (Aanchal Munjal) will now be 18-years-old. Wethinks Barkha looks too young to play mother to an 18-year-old! Having said that, we are sure the makers must have thought this through, or so we hope. So giving them and Mrs Sengupta the benefit of doubt, we hope the actor brings something fresh to the table and doesn’t disappoint us!
