Out of the blue, a scene from Saath Nibhaana Saathiya, a show that went off-air years ago, went viral on the internet. It had Kokilaben asking Gopi Bahu 'Rasode Mein Kaun Tha'. The twist was that the scene was turned into a rap song and it went instantly viral on the internet. Post this, reports came in that the makers of the show are planning for the second instalment of the daily soap. It was also reported that Devoleena Bhattacharjee and Rupal Patel have been roped in to reprise their roles of Gopi Bahu and Kokilaben respectively. However, Rupal Patel has rubbished these reports.
In an interview with Latestly, Rupal Patel informed that she hasn't been approached by the makers as of yet and that she is busy with her other show, Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyar Ke. "Actually I have heard about it, but I’m not sure about the same. Right now I’m happy playing the role of Meenakshi Rajvansh on Yeh Rishtey Hai Pyaar Ke on Star Plus. But my love and blessings are with Rashmi mam," she said. She further went on to reveal that the makers have not approached her and that she cannot do two shows simultaneously.
So if not her then who can be the perfect fit to play Kokilaben in Saath Nibhaana Saathiya 2? We can only do the guesswork.
Earlier, Rupal Patel had given out her reaction to the viral video and said, "I was pleasantly surprised and also shocked I could never imagine that my dialogues can turn into a rap song. Since yesterday I have been getting so many warm and appreciative messages. Fans, friends and family members have been calling and congratulating me. Even Smriti Irani shared the music video on her social media. What else can I say? I am humbled and honoured. Grateful to almighty and also Star Plus for giving me this opportunity."
