Indian television actor Rupal Patel became an internet sensation recently after a scene from the show Saath Nibhana Saathiya (SNS), in which she plays Kokilaben featuring the dialogue 'rasode mein kaun tha', went viral. With the show's newfound fame, the makers recently announce that SNS has been renewed for a second season.
Fans were initially left disappointed when Patel recently revealed that she wasn't approached for the project. ‘Actually, I have heard about it, but I’m not sure about the same. Right now, I’m happy playing the role of Meenakshi Rajvansh on Yeh Rishtey Hai Pyaar Ke on Star Plus. But my love and blessings are with Rashmi ma’am,” Patel had previously said in an interview with Latestly.
Patel has now revealed that she will indeed reprise her role as Kokilaben, reported Hindustan Times. “There cannot be SNS 2 without its Koki. “I couldn’t sleep the night I was approached for SNS 2 as I prefer doing one show at a time. But the channel, Rajan sir and Rashmi ma’am have assured me that we will figure out a way to ensure that everything proceeds smoothly," she was quoted as saying.
She said that she was first shown the viral video by her sister, and has since seen it multiple times. “Till I saw Yashrajji’s face, I was in shock because I was sure I hadn’t said the dialogue that way. But eventually, I was delighted and proud, and so was my family. And I felt that if a youngster had taken interest in my work and made it popular again, I had to congratulate him personally,” she said.
