Excerpts from the dialog.
How does it really feel to don the avatar of Gopi as soon as once more?
It’s nostalgic and actually a really huge alternative for me. Not many artists get to reprise their iconic characters. When that they had requested me if I was , I was actually very excited. I wouldn’t have preferred anybody else to play Gopi. It’s homecoming for me, as there’s a sure consolation degree with the staff. Also, Saathiya is a model and to deliver it again to the viewers could be very thrilling.
It’s been three years since the present went off air. What do you suppose makes it nonetheless so fashionable amongst plenty?
It was one-of-a-kind household drama, the place the storyline centered on each character. I believe that was the USP of the present. The saas-bahu relationship that was projected actually touched the viewers. Saathiya was a really relatable present and that undoubtedly added to its reputation, as individuals linked to its characters.
In the promo we see Gopi introducing a brand new character Gehna. With Saathiya 2 that includes her as the new lead, how a lot will we see you in the present?
(Laughs) Don’t fear, Gopi is there. You received’t miss her in any respect. I believe each time a brand new character has been launched, Gopi or Kokila has launched them. Saathiya 2 can also be a brand new present, with a special storyline and characters. However, the present can be incomplete with out the Modi household. I can’t reveal a lot about the present, however belief me, it’s going to be much more enjoyable.
Recently the Kokilaben video by Yashraj Mukhate created fairly the buzz. Is that what prompted a second season?
Not in any respect, we planned it long before that video. I believe we have been in dialogue from final 12 months. I had even signed my contract before the video went viral. However, I can’t deny that that the video has created fairly a buzz. Even throughout the lockdown, individuals made spoofs and TikTok movies on its dialogues. We have been shocked when Yashraj launched the video as we have been additionally about to shoot the promo then. I believe one wants that constructive push, and the video going viral gave me an indication that the new season will do fantastically.

What can we count on from Saathiya 2?
A whole lot of drama. As seen in the promo, Gopi has had a significant monetary shift, and has turn out to be very wealthy now (laughs). It’s a brand new journey altogether and I’m positive all Saathiya followers would take pleasure in the present.
Last 12 months your journey in Bigg Boss remained incomplete after you injured your self. Now that Season 14 is ready to launch, do you are feeling you need to have participated this 12 months?
No, then I’d have needed to decide both Bigg Boss or Saathiya 2. That would have been horrible. I’m grateful that I did the present final 12 months, because it turned the most profitable season. Whatever occurred was destined and I’m a agency believer that every part occurs for a cause. And I believe I was meant to do Saathiya 2 this 12 months. So it wasn’t a foul deal in any respect.
Saath Nibhana Saathiya 2 is ready to launch in October, changing Kasautii Zindagii Kay on Star Plus.
