Mohit Malik who shot to fame with television dramas, Banoo Main Teri Dulhann and Doli Armaano Ki, is now part of Star Plus’ hit show, Kullfi Kumarr Bajewala. It is a unique story a young singing prodigy Kullfi and her father, Sikandar Singh Gill. A remake of the Bengali television show, Potol Kumar Gaanwala, it struck a chord with the audience.
In a recent interview with an entertainment portal, Mohit talked about how his life has changed post the show. “I am happy that people have finally accepted me as a hero. Earlier, I did a show in which I played a negative lead and after that, Kullfi… happened. I won awards in a negative role and now won an award in a positive role as well. I have worked really hard. Financially too, life has become better. Mentally, I am happy and it’s motivating.”
Talking about what makes the show stand out, he said, “It is a milestone and there are many reasons. The show started off as musical and such concepts never worked. There is no heroine in the show, the heroine dies in the first few months. And we have Aakriti (Sharma) aka Kullfi’s cuteness and determination. The show has also portrayed a father-daughter relationship beautifully. We have crossed around 200 original compositions and we don’t have such a show on TV. We have worked hard to reach where we are right now.”

He added, “Without being biased as an actor in the show, I feel very proud to see Kullfi... being a part of Indian television.”
Aakriti who plays Kullfi has become a favourite with the audience. “I get to learn a lot from Aakriti. They are raw and unconditioned. I might take hours to prepare a scene and she shocks me every time the director says, ‘action’. She is very spontaneous,” said Mohit about Aakriti.
