Doing ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’ will be a good opportunity for her as an actor. I called her when I read the speculative news about her being considered for the show. I told her that the show will be a great opportunity for her and that she’ll give her whole and soul to the project and make the producers and the channel proud. She is a very hardworking actress and I wish the best for her and wish that she reach heights of success. I conveyed my best wishes to her and now that she has taken up the show, I’m happy for her”.
When asked about fond memories during KUDCA shoot, Shagun added, “There are many fond memories from the show with Pranali and the rest of the cast. It was a period drama wherein pre-partition and post-partition era were portrayed and it was quite a difficult show to pull off. Pranali played my mother in the show also. The entire cast of the show is quite thick and I’ve been in touch with Pranali post the show as well”.
