Ekta Kapoor's Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, arguably, is among one of the most-watched and celebrated Indian daily soap operas. The show, that had made actress-turned-politician Smriti Irani a household name, aired for a whopping eight years. Well, it also boasted of an ensemble supporting cast. Now, it appears that Smriti got a little emotional remembering the show and all her co-stars, as taking to her Instagram, she paid a heartwarming tribute to everyone, especially the legendary baa. She also revealed how while some cried because of her performance as Tulsi, a section of fans was exasperated.
The clip shared by Smriti Irani didn't only feature Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, but also a streak of other popular Star Plus shows that aired during that time. In her caption, Irani wrote, "while my politics took me on a new journey, I found my extended family patiently waiting every night at 10.30 for me to come home which though imaginary was still very much ours. Some said I cried a lot, many got exasperated by the sheer histrionics on screen but my fondest memories are of those who embraced me, blessed me for we were bound by the magic of a tv screen."
The politician continued, "Countless blessings later as I turn back the clock today I see numerous faces I call friends and colleagues. Some like Sudha Aunty (Ba) and the legendary Pandhari Juker my makeup wizard are no longer with us. Many are a phone call away; so during this lockdown make a call to an old friend from work.. kya pata they might remember us as fondly as we do. @ektarkapoor @ronitboseroy @karishmaktanna @hitentejwani @huseinkk @juhiparmar @sangitara2341 @karmarkar_kiran @shweta.tiwari"
