19 years ago, the iconic show Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi first aired on TV and went on to become the most popular and the most watched Television shows back then. Recently, the producer of the show, Ekta Kapoor, took to Twitter to post about the show completing 19 years. She wrote, “Many years ago ..on 3 July my life changed ! Thanku @StarPlus @nairsameer Rajubhai Vipul bhai anil all actors esp my tulsi @smritiirani ...directors ..tech team and above all Thanku INDIA”
Though Tulsi Virani aka Smriti Zubin Irani, now The Minister Of Textile for India, was missing from the celebrations, that didn't stop the remaining cast of the iconic show to meet up and host a party as the serial clocked 19 long years. Some of the actors who attended the party included Shakti Anand, Jaya Bhattacharya, Sumeet Sachdeva, Komolika Guhathakurta, Muni Jha, Hussain Kuwajerwala, Sandeep Baswana, Khyati Keswani, Ritu Chaudhry Seth and Jiten Lalwani. Apart from Smriti Irani, Amar Upadhyay, Apara Mehta, Mandira Bedi and a few others were also missing from the reunion.
Jaya Bhattacharya, who famously portrayed the role of Payal in the show, took to Instagram to share a video from the reunion where the cast members can be seen humming to the title song. Check out the video here:
Ritu Chaudhry Seth, who had played the role of Tulsi’s daughter Shobha shared several photos and videos from the party and the team seemed to have had an unforgettable night together. She captioned the post as “19 years back we started this journey that changed all our lives forever.... Gave us so much love, adulation and success and most importantly ..... each other. Though we have all moved on but the love that bound us then....still binds us together stronger than ever.... Missed all of those who couldn't make it last night.The pictures might be a bit blurred but the love, laughter and madness is as crystal clear as ever!”
The show ran successfully for over 8 years and ended on November 6, 2008. Anyone wishes for this epic reunion on screen too?
