Saath Nibhana Saathiya, a successful show while it was originally running on TV made its way onto our phone screens again when Yash Mukhate made it famous with his remix of Kokilaben‘s dialogue Rasode Mein Kaun Tha. Ever since makers announced the sequel to the show, there has been quite a lot of excitement surrounding it. The new show has been on the air for a while and it’s already been topping the TRP charts. But now, Kokilaben aka Rupal Patel has decided to quit the show shocking all her fans. Now, her costar Devoleena Bhattacharjee who plays Gopi Bahu has reacted to this news. Devoleena says that she is shocked by Rupal ji’s decision and will definitely miss her. In an interview with Pinkvilla, she opened up about how she felt.
I am very shocked and unhappy to know this. Honestly, as a viewer and co-actor, Saathiya without Koki is unimaginable. I will really miss her on sets and I really hope that she comes back. Though I am not happy, I respect her and her decision. She is senior and experience and a great personality. At the same time, I will miss the opportunity to learn more from here. The bond Gopi and Koki share onscreen and offscreen will be missed. I will miss the scenes of Gopi and Koki.Rupal ji has always maintained that her role in the new version of the show was only for a finite period. The buzz is that Devoleena and Mohammed Nazim aka Ahem also will leave the show soon so that the new family can take the centre stage. They were invited to just start off the show and introduce the Desai family and now the show will focus on Gehna and her family.
