Main characters


Kumkum is the favourite daughter-in-law of the Wadhwa family. First, she was married to Jatin; after Jatin's death she was engaged to Vishal but for some reason Vishal's parents called off the wedding and in the hustle bustle Sumit got angry and confused and applied the "sindur" on Kumkum's forehead and so they got married and she had to face Renuka being Sumit's new wife and also had to face the problems and later on they had three kids Druv, Sharman and Aashka. And suddenly she faces a huge problem—so huge that it becomes the reason for her death. But again Kumkum is back after her reincarnation as a "chulbuli" prankster and even in this "janam" she kind of starts "liking" Sumit and due to some consequences, she has to live with Sumit as his wife and helps him in many ways. Recently she has also fallen in love with Sumit, but doesn't want to admit her love to him as Sumit's father, Om Raichand insulted her and her father Chandu Mishra, of wanting to marry Sumit for money.


Sumit used to be Kumkum's brother-in-law but after Jatin's death he married Kumkum in a hustle bustle and faced the problems with her and left Renuka. But in the beginning they both were very uncomfortable but later on their life started to straight out and they were just like any other couple, they loved each other beyond everything and when Pulkit (a demanding lover of Kumkum, who wants her any cost) came back! he accidentally shot Kumkum but aimed at Sumit and Sumit killed himself too as he said he could not live without Kumkum and like as Kumkum he was also back...and he was from a rich and wealthy family and was a very decent guy.He usually gets visions from his past which makes him get closer to Kumkum. Recently, he has now fallen in love with Kumkum in their current life and is trying to help her realize that she loves him as well. He is having trouble doing this as Kumkum is scheduled to marry another illiterate and rude villager, Surjun Singh. Sumit disguised himself as Shamsher Singh and is planning to use Surjan to make Kumkum realize her love for him.
