Apara Mehta REVEALS how she bagged Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Devdas because of Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi | Bollywood Life

Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi is still one of the most popular shows. It began in 2000 and went on till 2008. The show was immensely popular and each character of the show had a separate fan base. Even today fans love the show and is still quite fresh in our minds. One of the characters which we remember after Tulsi and Mihir is of Savita Virani played by Apara Mehta. She is now back to television with Indiawali Maa. The actress in an interview with ETimes, spoke about the changes in the shooting style now. She said, “There are a lot of changes in the television industry and I have been a part of the change. Technically, cameras, lightings everything has changed. The major change was brought about by Ekta Kapoor and Kyunki Saas Abhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. She completely changed everything and gave a glamorous look to TV. So, television became like films and it was no less than it. I’ve been a part of that entire journey. I worked when Indian makeup was used and today everything is very different.” Also Read – Hiten Tejwani recalls his first day on Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi sets; says, ‘They hadn’t even decided my name when I reached there’

“Technically everything has changed. The reach obviously, we know has increased. Another thing is that TV has more powerful roles and it is woman centric. So, if I get offered a film I will think 10 times before doing it as it won’t offer me what I am getting on TV. Content wise I feel it was better earlier and now it is mostly repetitive. Television became big because of Kyunki… and KBC (Kaun Banega Crorepati). One has to admit and accept this fact. Incidentally, my TV show Ek Mahal Ho Sapno Ka was the first daily which had Sucheta and me. It was the first daily on a satellite channel. I have done a show called Dillagi also. I’ve been around since a very long and been a part of history. So, when I look back and think oh what it was then and what it is now, I definitely see a lot of difference, “she added. She also spoke about the change in her life post Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. She said, “My life changed in so many ways after Kyunki. I did not remain the normal person for the audience. Recently, I was travelling for my web series to Delhi and I asked my producer to send someone at the airport as I am geographically weak and the last time I had come to Delhi was when the Prime Minister had invited us. She looked at me with shock and I told her she must be thinking I am joking but it was a fact. The then Prime Minister had invited us to his house for dinner and I had gone. That was Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee ji in 2004. I have done the biggest Yatras of my life because of Kyunki. I performed the first aarti of the biggest pandals of India during Navratri. I had performed the maha Aarti of mahakaal of Ujjain during Shivratri. I feel these are the things that I have earned because of the show. Forget the money part. Forget the part when Kyunki made TV big and money became the important part. When the President and Prime Minister of your country invite you and you do all the biggest yatras of your life, it can’t get bigger.” Also Read – Karishma Tanna’s expressions define the many moods of the day – view pics

Apara Mehta revealed she was offered Devdas by Sanjay Leela Bhansali after Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi became popular. She said, “I remember because of the popularity of Kyunki, Sanjay Leela Bhansali had invited me to offer a role in Devdas and my jaw dropped. He told me I am offering you a very tiny part but I feel you fit the role perfectly. When I was doing the film, I did not have the time to absorb the moment but today when I think about it I recall what a lavish set we would work. It was a grand set but I was working so hard I hardly had to cherish those moments. I was shooting for Mihir’s death scene in those days, I have worked for 17 day and nights. During the day I would shoot for Kyunki and at night for Devdas. It took me three four days to adjust to the timings but post that my eyes would be wide open and used to not even fumble with my dialogues. During that time two drivers who worked for me left the job as they couldn’t work like this. I was eating, sleeping in the car. I have not seen episodes of Kyunki or Ek Mahal Ho Sapno Ka. It was recently during lockdown I saw all these shows. I didn’t have time to see Mahabharat. Lockdown was like blessing in disguise. The journey has been long and I just hope I get to work more and I get offered all kinds of roles as I am up for it.” Also Read – Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi completes 20 years, Smriti Irani recalls a special request she made to Ekta Kapoor on Day 1 of shoot
