While Sikha Singh aka Aaliya of "Kumkum Bhagya" hates her brother Abhi (Shabbir Ahluwalia) and had plotted to ruin his as well as his wife's lives, off-screen, she bonds well with Shabbir.

 In an interview with India-Forums, Sikha reveals she is quite close to all the co-actors and shares a wonderful bond with Mrunal Thakur aka Bulbul. She also reveals that both she and Abhi are pranksters on the sets.

"I started shooting with the cast of Kumkum Bhagya one and a half year back and we all are best of friends now. Especially Mrunal Thakur! We both are spontaneous energetic and proactive beings. I am a very naughty person love playing pranks. I and Shabbir Ahluwalia are the primary pranksters on our sets. Because of my sharp looks, people generally perceive me as an angry young woman but in reality, I am a very jovial person," Sikha told the entertainment portal.

Talking about the difficulty in shooting with her male co-stars, the actress said: "Well, I find it very difficult to shoot with male co-actors because I am tall and hence I do not get the liberty to wear heels. Also, I need to bend a little when I am shooting with my co-stars to match their height. It feels good to be tall but then there are times I feel awkward too."

Meanwhile, the show "Kumkum Bhagya" has taken a short leap and Pragya (Sriti Jha), who met with an accident, is back in a glamorous and bold avatar.

Although, Aaliya and Tanu tried their best to kill Pragya, the protagonist survives after Arjun (Rithvik Dhanjani) and Purvi (Asha Negi) take her to the hospital where she is seen battling for her life.
