Happy Birthday Sargun Mehta: From ‘Karol Bagh wali Ladki’ to Punjab’s heartthrob, here’s the story of TV’s Bandit Queen

The 12/24 Karol Bagh debutante who became overnight popular by her stint, is none other than Sargun Mehta. Sargun, while talking about her first break, added that it was just an accident.

The shows that garnered her more popularity were ‘Phulwa’ and ‘Kya Hua Tera Vaada’, after which she was also seen in a popular daily soap, ‘Balika Vadhu’.

Sargun, who did her graduation from Kirori Mal College, Delhi, left a Master’s degree in Business Management, to pursue her acting career.

On the professional front, her ‘Sohreyan Da Pind Aa Gaya’ is upheld due to Covid19 and ‘Qismat 2’ is ready for release on 24th September.
