Speaking about the show, Sharad Malhotra said, “As an actor, one always enjoys more challenging roles. My character in the show is guilty of a crime that has become extremely common today. Besides giving a conclusion to the story, the show also offers the viewers an alternate ending, which is an interesting innovation. I am glad that the audience will get to watch it soon on Hungama Play and certain that they will appreciate the show’s format and storytelling.”

I am glad to be a part of a show that is so relevant in today’s world and feel certain that the viewers will be shocked to see the assortment of stories.”
Anjum Fakih said, “It is rare to come across a show that reflects reality in such an accurate manner.

I’m excited to have the viewers watch it on Hungama Play when it releases.”
Sharing his perspective, Dheeraj Dhoopar said, “Kashmakash highlights the crimes that happen right under our noses and we either remain unaware of them or try and brush them under the carpet. It is important for the viewers to be aware of the crimes that happen around us all the time.”
Abigail Pande said, “We carry on with our daily activities without any sense of caution merely because they are part of our routine. Kashmakash serves as a reminder that one has to be cautious of whatever they do. I am thrilled to be a part of the show and cannot wait for the viewers to watch it on Hungama Play.”
Shiny Doshi said, “I am excited to star in such a relevant show with an extremely talented and humungous star cast. I am certain that the stories narrated in the show will shock the viewers as much as they shocked us. At the same time, I am certain that the viewers will also appreciate the alternate endings in the show as well.”
Sharing his perspective on safety, Abhishek Kapur said, “It is important to keep in mind one’s safety and those of others around them. My story in the show revolves around parenting and drugs-related issues – something that we need to be exceedingly cautious of in today’s world. Alternate endings in the show also add an interesting dimension.”
Kashmakash will be available to stream on Hungama Play soon.
