Abhishek Rawat – portrays the character of Manav
Manav is a simple and content middle class guy who loves his family. He is a man of principles and stands by it. Manav’s grounded character and beliefs mirrors every common man’s thinking. Kaamnaa as a show brings alive a refreshing concept with Manav and Akanksha’s journey that is rooted in the reality of the Indian households, making it relatable. Hope the audience enjoy watching the show as I am really excited for this journey. Also, shooting in Bhopal has been enjoyable. It is a beautiful city that has always had my heart. I am happy to be back to the city to shoot for our show because the warmth and hospitality the city has to offered is unmatched.

Chandni Sharma – portrays the character of Akanksha
Like most millennials, my character, Akanksha, who true to her name is a strong headed woman with big desires of living a luxurious life while moving away from the ordinary way of living.  I am thrilled to have gotten the chance to play a character that resonates with the young generation who dares to dream, find happiness in the grandeur of living life king size, and believes that there is nothing wrong in wanting a little extra. Through Akanksha and Manav’s journey, Kaamnaa looks at a narrative that is no different from how most people lead their lives. This character is very different from my previous characters that I have essayed before and I hope I am able to justice to it. On top of it, shooting in Bhopal is like the cherry on the cake. It’s such a beautiful city, so green, with wonderful food. I won’t be lying when I say I have fallen in love with Bhopal!
