Mrunal Thakur as Sakshi Anand in Arjun – Har Yug Mein Aayega Ek

A beguiling smile. Twinkle in her eyes. And lilt in her voice. Sakshi Anand. Arjun – Har Yug Mein Aayega Ek will see entry of a new girl Mrunal Thakur, a journalist. Incisive, observant and inquisitive, she still has a child-like innocence that has enamored most of the ETF Team. She is there as part of the team, to dog their footsteps and report to the public what ETF Team does. Armed with a pen and paper, she will amass information on cases that come the Emergency Task Force’s way and put forward how the unit functions, how difficult and mind-boggling some of the cases are and how they work in tandem to solve crimes.

One person who finds her underfoot is Arjun Suryakant Rawte (Shaleen Malhotra). A loner, he finds this intrusion inconvenient at best and her ready smile will not melt this stone hearted man. Or will it? Time will tell.

Mrunal Thakur as Sakshi Anand in Arjun – Har Yug Mein Aayega Ek

Mrunal Thakur interestingly was a student of journalism at KC College in South Mumbai before she got into acting. Yet to complete her Third Year, she always wanted to be an actor however coming from an orthodox family she had to really convince her parents, especially her father and her uncle to come into the Television Industry. Her career started at the age of 15 where she became a part of a Marathi Docu-drama. A couple of years and that project is yet to see the light of the day, a friend’s advice to give auditions landed her a lead role in Khamoshiyan as Gauri Bhonsle, a show on Star Plus.

Though the stint did not last for a long time as the show shut down after a few months, Mrunal Thakur said that her experience was amazing as the star cast had stalwarts of the industry whose acting experience is worth their weight in gold and she for one got lessons from them by virtue of working with them. Be it  Tushar Dalvi, Resham Seth, Shilpa Tulaskar, Abir Goswami or Ravindra Mankani. She learned from each one of them and she realised the best thing for her to do was take advantage of the situation by being a sponge and learning as much as she could from them. She shared a room with Suhas Joshi (everyone calls her Suhas Tai) and she is a school in herself. Learning intonation from one, how to deal with people in general from another, how to be professional from third were life lessons she learned at the sets of Khamoshiyan.

We welcome Mrunal Thakur to her new project Arjun – Har Yug Mein Aayega Ek and wish her the very best. She will make her entry in coming Saturday’s episode. Don’t forget to tune in.

Watch Arjun – Har Yug Mein Aayega Ek, every Saturday-Sunday at 8pm on Star Plus, for a one of kind crime action thriller on Indian Television.

  1. If there was a role was all about chirpness, so then Mr. Gorky, why was Sana Khan not brought back? It’s a crime show. You can show her double sister or whatever. People have pulled off double roles all the time. I guess the demand never seems to work with 4 lions. They just do what they want to. Sakshi, sound another Riya perhaps?

    and whatever happened to, “I don’t like my heroines to be behind the desk” , Isn’t Sakshi going to be behind the desk rather in the field?

  2. A lovely find! Her smile is truly amazing & will get the requisite TRPs to keep the channel happy.Congrats, Team Arjun!

    My concern is: This is a crime show where the main focus will remain first on the crime & then Arjun for most part. Just how much time can be dedicated to the romantic angle or the ETF public relations blitz part? From her audition fiasco reports the actress seems to be keen on playing a pivotal role in some saas-bahu daily soap where the camra is permanently fixed on the female lead.Could Arjun be a long term commitment for such an aspirant? I can imagine the channel blowing its fuse if this one too decides to flee like the previous one mid way. I love Arjun & Shaleen too much to see them go through another screw up as regards the female lead. I hope for the best.

    Welcome to Arjun,Mrunal Thankur.

  3. Oh boy! Look what shez wearing… ??? Red and white… she has already invaded into his territory… sakshi means witness… she will be a witness to his good times and bad… positive side and negative… highs and lows… Anand means happiness and hence will bring back thelost joy and hope into his life..
    Must say Mrunal looks adorable… I wish her all the luck… !!!! Welcome to ETF Land Sakshi Anand…

  4. So we have sum1 in ETF who will abide by “Pen s mightier then Sword”
    Waiting to see her in arjun n how d onscreen chemistry turns out ….
    Excited definitely
    Arjun’s first reaction wud b worth watching …

    Saturday come fast….still 5 days left

  5. Congrats on finally landing yourselves a female lead.

    The man,Arjun Rawte is broken beyond repair & has wounds that run really really deep.Will chirpiness & frivolity honestly heal this man & teach him to live his life again? Is a good set of dentures enough to put this broken soul together? I cannot see the depth required for a character to heal someone like Arjun Rawte back to normalcy in this actress.

    A brooding hurt gentleman is moved by a happy go lucky pretty young thing.Done to death, don’t you think? I would have liked to see an equally wounded & recluse being who moves Arjun by the way she handles her own pain & grief. It would have been a treat to watch him see himself in her & not like it & try to put her together back.

    But you are the makers you know what,s best for your baby.I also know audiences love such characters & will flock to the show in hordes.

    • Exactly couldn’t agree more. It always is that a brooding guy is moved by a innocent damsel. This concept seems to be a stock material for you guys. No offence meant to your creative thinking but would like to see someone equally tainted paired opposite Arjun. That would look more realistic!

    • Precisely what I was thinking! Which is why I thought Aisha would be the one. You know, cos she’s been through a traumatic undercover experience + there seems to be some back story about her @ her father. Not to be, alas. The new lead is pretty, no doubt, but I seriously doubt whether I want to see yet another ‘bubbly’ heroine.

      All the best, Team Arjun! Please don’t let us down.

  6. Shaleen and Mrunal will look good together……..we guess, let us all wait and see how this unfolds.
    The main focus should remain on the crime investigations first, coz Arjun is the best in this field, but at the same time we would love to see him developping a soft spot for someone else than Riya……….still wonder why Riya had to be killed………she could have easily be shifted to this departement as well
    Loved the chemistry btwn Arjun and Riya and Arjun already had a soft corner for her

    But nevertheless………I am still excited for this and curious how it will unfold

  7. Well, I m a little disappointed wid d character of Sakshi. How can one expect a famous ex-crime reporter to b so childish? While discussing a case she goes off d topic.Hitting ACP Arjun Rawte.I expected her character to b more intense. She was an famous ex crime reporter so she must have witnessed so many crimes nd criminals still der isnt any changes of seriousness in her? I wonder. Arjun is a no nonsense tolering guy den how can he overluk Sakshi’s silly comments nd hitting him as though she is his childhood friend. I hav’nt noticed Sakshi wid a pen nd a pad in her hand which is a must 4 a jounalist.I expected Sakshi to b a matured reporter & having d same caliber as dat of Arjun. I dint find any connection between an ETF team & an ex-crime reporter. If Arjun team planned for a romatic track den y as a ex-crime reporter who is of no intellegence.It cud hav been a trainee who falls in luv wid her senior. Like Riya’s character.She too was a lik a trainee. I feel Sakshi is a beauty wid less brains. Arjun is luvd 4 his intelligence nd i dont want him ending up wid only a beautiful face.I expect team Arjun to show Sakshi wid intelligent mind which helps Arjun nd his team to solve complicated cases nd not to creat only a light moment in ETF unnecesarily. At d end saying abt Mrunal yes, she is really a beautiful girl wid a sweet smile.Hope she gets to perform her role much better in cumg epi’s.

  8. mrunal – i like her she is nice,but the way cvs forcing arakshi i didnt like u tell me kya zaroorat hai etf mein journalist ki,can she fight or research like riya ayesha,pehle nahi chaapte the news mein etf k liye,they have wasted riya’s build up as a character and officer,u tell me what so creative in introducing a new lead that too when they knw ppl r addctd ariya and riya,s character they wasted ariya moments and killed her just bcoz sana left i respect sana’s decision and wish her good health happiness but they must hv find replmnt sabne yahi socha tha k she will survive and arjun will dvlp more feelings 4 her,bcoz 1 week latkaya cvs ne aur marna tha toh same day batate na then her secret and letters to shree-chotu trainig ka mauka to rathore then arjuns dialg about luv,agree he never loved her but didnt he felt smthg or atleast 1percent 4 her,sonali ki audtn actually was 4 riya only when mrunal was avoiding and said she is tired after khamoshiyaan and didnt went 4 audtns when cvs has schdl so many times then she said yes at last moment,but gorky wntd new lead journ god knows for what reason kya creativity hai new lead laane mein,when ayesha was intrdc ppl thght she’s opp arjun so they started accptg her but i m glad she’s opp sam,cvs want to entrtn themselvs and ignore viewers and disspnt them,Even now i see on fcbk twtr ppl rqsts for riya chrctrs cmbk including me which is not wrong but it falls on deaf ears and forum doesnt accpt criticism they go with the flow sorry if u feel bad its my pov ..
