    Kumkum Bhagya is probably every television producer's dream come true — after all, the Ekta Kapoor offering is one of the few Hindi shows that can boast of over 1,500 episodes. But Sriti Jha does not feel monotonous as an artiste to play Pragya for five years, day in, day out.

    "Today, most of the channels are targeting Indian women and that is why roles for actresses are more challenging and vast compared to male actors. Bollywood is definitely on my list, but I don't want to make a hurried decision. Let the right offer and right time come, I will happily grab it," she said.
