We all know that Actress Devoleena Bhattacharjee will be seen playing Gopi again in Saath Nibhana Saathiya 2. The show is making a comeback after Yashraj Mukhate’s Rasode Mein Kaun Tha rap went viral. During an interview to Pinkvilla, Devoleena spoke about reprising her character after participating in Bigg Boss 13. She said that she wasn’t apprehensive about playing Gopi. “It is like continuing your own brand just like superstars Salman Khan, Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar do in their films respectively. It is more about entertaining the fans. As an actor, I’m always up for it,” said Devoleena.
On returning to the show, she said, “I was glad. Gopi was iconic and will always remain iconic. And yes, playing your iconic role after a break and that too on demand is called opportunity.”
Taking about playing a bahu, Devoleena stated, “Being bahu on-screen is just like paying a tribute to Indian Bahus. I respect my culture. Now people know both Devoleena and Gopi bahu, so I do not see it as an issue.”
In an interview to ETimes, she also spoke about Rupal Patel returning as Kokilaben. She said, “I don’t know if it’s true, but I really hope she returns. I was under the impression that she would be reprising her role. The whole Koki-Gopi equation is what the audience loved. So, if I’m there, Koki should be there too! I would be very sad if she doesn’t return.”
She also said she was destined to play Gopi bahu, “Getting back to my Saathiya family is a very big deal for me. It is a great coincidence that the show went off air in July 2017, and now on July 23, I got a call to reprise my role as Gopi bahu. In the middle of all this, the viral video added to the excitement. I feel this was destined to happen.”
