Check out her interesting answer about the Diya Aur Baati Hum quiz.
1. What was the date that Diya Aur Baati started on?
The starting on-air date was 29th August.
2. When did the show end?
It was 7th of September that the shoot was wrapped and the show went off air on the 10th of September.
3. Which was that bahu of yours on the show, amongst the 3 bahus you had, that if you didn’t scold her, your day wouldn’t end?
That was Meena Bindni and the scolding started as soon as the sun rose and didn’t end until the lights went off.
4. Which season was better, part 1 or part 2?
For me, it was the First season. Because, that was a family to me and we worked together for 5 and a half years. It was a dream, a small journey and was very dear to me.
5. Is there still a character or a scene that makes you emotional till date?
Like how Suraj supports Sandhya, just when he is about to cross the threshold and Bhabho stops her and asks him, won’t you support your Bhabho? Then he says that right now, I am supporting my wife, because she is right and he moves on and the way Bhabho just sits there. It took me more than half an hour to control my tears. It felt like my own son was leaving me.
6. Do you’ll still meet like a reunion happens, are you’ll in touch with the cast?
Yes, yes it does happen. We have a WhatsApp group too, we have a good morning. On occasions, we wish each other; the love and family is still there.
