Ekta Kapoor welcomed Smriti on the social media platform by posting two adorable pictures. One of them was a group photograph of Ekta Kapoor with Smriti Irani and Sakshi Tanwar which she captioned as, “Let's welcome my friend! A force to reckon with! Her meteoric rise stunned many but wat stuns me more is how rooted she is! Finally on instagram let’s welcome Tulsi!”
The other snap was just as adorable- Smriti’s throwback picture with a caption that read, “Yay after much persuasion!!!”
Of course, seeing Ekta’s gesture, Smriti also thanked the TV queen. She wrote, “@ektaravikapoor Thanks for pestering me to do this. Looks like a fun journey ahead 😊 #tbt #thosewerethedays”
Now, we’re waiting for Sakshi Tanwar to join social media as well.
Smriti and Sakshi began their careers playing bahus for Ekta Kapoor’s epic TV serials - Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki respectively. Both the serials became hugely popular in the early 2000s and catapulted Smriti and Sakshi to overnight fame. They became household names, and their onscreen names (Tulsi & Parvati) became common lingo.
However, as life progressed the two went in different directions. While Sakshi still manages to do TV, films and even web-series, Smriti moved away from acting and went into politics.
But now that Smriti is on Instagram, thanks to Ekta, her fans will get to see more of her.
