Star Plus’ popular show Ishqbaaaz, which recently witnessed a generation leap in its narrative, has added an immensely talented actor to its cast. We are talking about veteran actress Supriya Pilgaonkar who has come onboard to play a police commissioner on the hit show.

Pilgaonkar, whose credits include Tu Tu Main Main, Sasural Genda Phool and Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi, among others, is thrilled to have joined the cast of one of the longest-running soaps on the popular network.

“I am very excited to be part of a long-running show like Ishqbaaaz because I get to play a character that I have never played before, that of a police commissioner. I have always loved women in armed forces and the sense of power they exude,” the talented actress said in a statement.

Talking more about her role in Ishqbaaaz, she said, “On the show, my character gets to show her human side along with her strong and independent demeanour. As opposed to my previous roles on screen, I will be seen in a completely different light on Ishqbaaaz which was instrumental for me to give a nod to the role in flat half an hour. I hope viewers love my unique avatar on screen and enjoy watching my performance.”

Produced by Gul Khan, Ishqbaaaz stars Nakuul Mehta and Manjiri Pupala in its lead cast. The series, which premiered on 27th June, 2016, has been one of the top-rated shows on Star Plus ever since its launch.
