Speaking about the same, Mishal told TOI that, "Its not that I was not keen on doing Khatron Ke Khiladi, but acting is my first love so I said yes to Kumkum Bhagya. I feel very happy when I am acting and no other feeling can replace it. Also the character offered to me was so interesting that it tempted me to accept it and I grabbed the opportunity with both the hands."
