Smriti Irani celebrates 21 years of Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, says the show the changed her life

Smriti Irani took to social media to commemorate 21 years of Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi.

Commemorating 21 years of her iconic show ”Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi”, former actress Smriti Irani confessed that long-running television drama was a life-changing ordeal not only for the audience but also the people who worked on it.

Produced by Shobha Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor-led Balaji Telefilms, the soap opera premiered on July 3, 2000, and trotted for around eight years, clocking more than 1,800 episodes.

Irani became a family name with her character of Tulsi Virani, a perfect daughter-in-law, who takes off through a succession of ups and downs while conserving her family.

Irani took to Instagram late Saturday evening and posted a video montage of the show to caption the occasion. ”We had made a promise ‘Phir Milenge’, a promise we could not keep… 21 years ago began a journey which changed many lives – brought joy to some, annoyed a few but impacted all those who saw it, who worked for it. Thank you for the memories!” Irani wrote.

The Star Plus show saw three-time leaps, before going off-air in November 2008.

Ekta Kapoor took to Instagram and reposted a fan video, writing, ”Many moons Ago. This day. changed my life! Thank you @starplus @sameern @smritiiraniofficial Rajubhai Vipul Bhai and everyone associated.”

Several of the show’s cast members, including Mouni Roy, Hiten Tejwani, and Anita Hassanandani also commented on Irani’s post.
