Little more than two years back Ragini Khanna (real name of the Star Plus super hit ‘Sasural Genda Phool’ lead actress) said in an interview to a popular English daily that, she is known less by her name and more as Govinda’s niece. Let me tell Ragini Khanna its not the case anymore and you are Star and people want to know anything and everything about you. Yes, its been public demand to write biography of Ragini Khanna (Suhana of Sasural Genda Phool) so here you go.

Career as television actress:
Ragini Khanna started her career in early 2008 her debut serial was Radhaa Ki Betiyaan Kuch Kar Dikhayengi of NDTV Imagine. In this show she played the role of Ragini Sharma the middle daughter Of Radhaa Sharma (Supriya Pilgaonkar). Later she acted in show called Bhaskar Bharti in this Sony TV’s show she played the Bhaskar’s female avatar which was the main role. Both these serials did not created waves.
Early this year she started working on Ravi Ohja’s Sasural Genda Phool which was launched as prime time show on Star Plus. In the first month of the launch of this serial itself her popularity level touched new heights that she herself might not have expected. Ragini Khanna’s role (Suhana) in this Star Plus show is not only of female lead but she is the center point of the whole serial.
Ragini Khanna’s role in Sasural Genda Phool is of girl who lost her mother very early and brought up by father. Her father gives her the love and care of both mother and father. Her father is very big businessman and satisfies all the demands of Suhana (Ragini Khanna). She is not spoilt but completely unaware of middle class kind of living. But she gets married to Ishaan (Jay Soni) who belongs to a middle class, then comes the twist and glamor in the story.
The days of shooting Bhaskar Bharti were the toughest days of her career so far. The serial’s shooting, promotional trips, special episodes and top of all them the shows demand to reduce weight heavily put her health into trouble. In fact she was hospitalised for a day as her blood pressure dropped, she was taken to hospital in the middle of the shooting. Hard work pays!
Story of Sasural Genda Phool:
I will write a separate post on the story of Sasural Genda Phool but in short it is a very very different story apart from regular serial followers it is being loved by many people who usually do not watch serials. The story is about a girl (Suhana – Ragini Khanna) who does not know anything about middle class living but gets married in a big joint family which is middle class where everyone loves each other very much and human values are above everything. The story Sasural Genda Phool is about how this girl struggles, adjusts and gels. Best part of this serial is comedy part, it reminds me of Baa Bahoo Aur Baby a lot (which I miss).
