Kumkum Bhagya lead pair Shabir Ahluwalia and Sriti Jha, who play the role of Abhi and Pragya, respectively, have flown down to New York for a Diwali event.

The on-screen couple have been enjoying every bit of their stay in the city and are overwhelmed with the love showered on them. The 37-year-old actor, Shabir, recently took to Instagram to post a video of himself along with co-star Sriti and expressed their gratitude to fans in New York for their love and support.

He captioned the video as: "NewYork thank you for the love, special mention to the pankhas thank you for always being there love you guys #blessed#kumkumbhagya #love."

Abhi-Pragya and their romance have always been the heart of Kumkum Bhagya. Sriti and Shabir have also turned out to be one of the most loved on-screen couples, with millions of fans worldwide. Such is the craze for the on-screen couple and their chemistry that followers of the show often make collages of their favourite pair on Twitter to express their love for the couple and the show.

Meanwhile, Kumkum Bhagya, which had enjoyed the top position for several weeks, slipped to the fifth slot with 6.2million views in the Television Rating Points (TRP) chart in week 40 of 2016.

On the show, Pragya has been trying her best to help Abhi recognise her. Abhi, who is suffering from partial memory loss, believes that he has some connection with Pragya but fails to recognise her as his wife.
