Rupal Patel who shot to fame for playing Kokila Ben in Star Plus hit show Saath Nibhaana Saathiya, feels fortunate to explore the comedy genre.
Rupal recently shot for the comedy show Gangs Of Filmistaan, featuring comedians Sunil Grover, Siddharth Sagar and Sanket Bhosale.
Talking about her experience on the show, Rupal said, “I am impressed by all the artistes of Gangs of Filmistaan. When I got the opportunity to perform with them, I took it because I wanted to work with them. The second reason is that I am a National School of Drama graduate. I have been taught that an artiste should play different roles and should be versatile. So when I got the opportunity to be a part of a comedy show, I could not say no.”
Rupal further says, “I have been doing daily soaps for so many years. By God’s grace, I have got serious and powerful roles and strong characters, due to which there was less chance of exploring comedy. Of course, Saath Nibhaana Saathiya season one gave me a small opportunity to play out humorous situations but here, it is out and out comedy.”
Recently, Rupal’s character from Saath Nibhaana Saathiya became the talk of town, after musician Yashraj Mukhate recreated a sequence from the show, which became a rage on social media.
Rasode mein kaun tha meme harks back to the by-now famous dialogue in Saath Nibhaana Saathiya. In a scene, Kokilaben asks her daughter-in-law Gopi, “Rasode mein kaun Tha? Main tha? Tum thi? Kaun tha?”
