Barkha Bisht is back in the news. Well, the beautiful actress is all set to play the mother of Lord Hanuman in Sony TV’s Sankat Mochan Hanuman. While, she seems to be enjoying the role of Anjani, here we share her biography from her early days till date.
Barkha Bisht was born on December 28, 1979 in Hissar, Haryana. Her hometown is Uttarakhand. Her father was a Colonel so it seems that Barkha moved from one place to another all throughout her childhood. She is the youngest of three sisters. Back in her school days, Barkha was quite popular among the school kids especially while she was studying in Kendriya Vidayala, Fort William Kolkata. In the year 2000, Barkha it seems was also voted as the NDA Queen.
She started her career in TV with Balaji Telefilms’ Kitni Mast Hai Zindagi where she essayed the role of Udita. A youth related show it aired on MTV which also starred Panchi Bora, Karan Singh Grover and Yash Tonk. A year later she was seen in Star Plus’ Pyaar Ke Do Naam : Ek Radha Ek Shyam along with co-star Indraneil Sengupta (now Barkha’s husband). The concept of the serial was reincarnation and Barkha was seen in three roles – Radha, Shyama, and Radhika.
Next, she was seen playing the role of Arpita Nanda in Balaji Telefilms’ yet another very popular show Kkavyanjali which had Ejaz Khan and Anita Hassanandani in lead roles. Again in 2007, both Barkha and Indraneil Sengupta was chosen to play the lead role in Sahara One’s ‘Babul Ki Betiya Chali Doli Sajake’. The show ran for two years till 2009. Then in 2010, she bagged another Star Plus’ show Sajan Ghar Jaana Hai.
In 2006, Barkha hosted Popkorn Newz on Zoom TV and later in 2012 she hosted Comedy Circus Ke Ajoobe on Sony TV. A year later, she was then again seen in TV serial – Parvarrish – Kuchh Khattee Kuch Meethi where she essayed the role of Pinky Ahuja, a modern mother who wants to take care of her children by becoming their friend.
Bollywood and Bengali Films
Barkha has done films too. She did an item number in Hindi film Rajneeti and also in Bengali Film in Dui Prithibi. In 2011, she was also seen in another Bengali film Ami Subash Bolchi as Charulata Bose. The film also starred Mithun Chakraborty. In 2013, Barkha essayed the role of Kesar (Meghji’s widow. Meghji was played by Abhimanyu Singh) in Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram-Leela. In 2014, Bisht was once again seen in other movie Samrat & Co. However, this time she was paired with her real husband Indraneil Sengupta.
After dating for 2 years, Barkha Bisht married Indraneil Sengupta in 2008. The two are totally opposite to each other, and it seems this is precisely what clicked between the two. Three years later in 2011, the couple was also blessed by a daughter Meira. Now that she is already a mother in real life, looks like Barkha will be able to portray her role of Anjani quite well.
We wish Barkha Bisht Sengupta all the very best for her first mythological serial…
