Mumbai: After the phenomenal success of Jodha Akbar and Jhansi ki Rani, Zee TV launched its greatest historical magnum opus – Kashibai Bajirao Ballal – which featured the forgotten history of Kashibai. Featuring the story of one of the most legendary women of the Maratha Empire, the show started with a bang. However, it was the recent 7-year jump that got everyone excited, especially with Riya Sharma (Kashibai) and Rohit Chandel (Bajirao) joining the show. As Bajirao tries to fulfill his wish to expand the Maratha Empire, it seems our very own Kashibai aka Riya Sharma is also trying to fulfill his dreams.
The actress recently flew to Delhi for something she really wanted. Although it’s not her first visit to Delhi, Riya had been eyeing a Gucci handbag for a few months and when she heard it was available in the city, she flew out to buy it. In fact, Kashibai actress Bajirao Ballal is a handbag fanatic and currently has more than 20-25 designer handbags in her collection. During her visit to Delhi, she not only gorged on momos, but also shopped at Lajpat Nagar market, before heading to a swanky mall in the city to buy the Gucci handbag that she wanted so much.
As Riya Sharma revealed, “I’ve always been crazy about handbags and clutches, and I buy at least one, everywhere and everywhere I visit. I have a total of 20-25 bags in my closet at the moment, and I want to keep adding to my collection. In fact, since I was a child, I have dreamed of having a wardrobe full of colorful handbags. There are different brands that I prefer, and Gucci is the most desirable. I recently flew to Delhi when I heard that a Gucci handbag that I had been wanting for a few months was finally available. I went there to buy one, but I ended up buying three bags from three different brands.
She further added, “Besides my love for bags, I also love street food in Delhi and have not failed to feast on mouth-watering delicacies. No one can find tasty momos anywhere but in Delhi, so I ate two plates of momos, one plate of Chhole Bhature and one plate of Chhole Kulche from the roadside restaurants during my visit.
As Riya lives out her dreams, Kashibai is worried as Radhabai’s evil plan tears her relationship with Bajirao apart. But will Kashibai’s determination to win Bajirao’s heart help him succeed or will it drive them apart?
