Union Minister Smriti Irani, took to her Instagram handle to share a throwback video of 'Star Parivaar' featuring all her co-stars from the Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi days. Getting nostalgic, the Union Cabinet Minister for Textiles and Women & Child Development, wrote that one should pick up their phones during this lockdown and call an old friend from work. Irani also had a fun hilarious conversation with Karishma Tanna.
Tagging Ekta Kapoor, Ronit Bose Roy, Karishma Tanna, Hiten Tejwani, Husein, Juhi Parmar, Sangita, Kiran Karmarkar, Shweta Tiwari, Smriti Irani wrote, "Kya pata they might remember us as fondly as we do." Sharing a 2004 video, Irani also wrote that she found her extended family every night at 10.30. 'Some said I cried a lot, many got exasperated by the sheer histrionics on screeen...,' Irani wrote.
Karishma Tanna replied and wrote, "Thanku @smritiiraniofficial I still remember my first day of shoot Wher no one was talkin to me Cz I was a new comer except you. U had lunch wit me and my mom from my gujju Tiffin . Can never forget that tulsi had lunch wit me ðð¤ªâ¤ï¸ love you
To this, Smriti Irani replied, "bloody ur tiffin I ate and got fat ðmuch love so proud of u .. say hi to mom . Wish her happy Mother’s Day." She further added: "@karishmaktanna â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ where the hell is @imouniroy big star she has become ... I hate the fact that you girls are still slim ... " [sic]
while my politics took me on a new journey, I found my extended family patiently waiting every night at 10.30 for me to come home which though imaginary was still very much ours. Some said I cried a lot, many got exasperated by the sheer histrionics on screen but my fondest memories are of those who embraced me, blessed me for we were bound by the magic of a tv screen. Countless blessings later as I turn back the clock today I see numerous faces I call friends and colleagues. Some like Sudha Aunty (Ba) and the legendary Pandhari Juker my makeup wizard are no longer with us. Many are a phone call away; so during this lockdown make a call to an old friend from work.. kya pata they might remember us as fondly as we do. @ektarkapoor @ronitboseroy @karishmaktanna @hitentejwani @huseinkk @juhiparmar @sangitara2341 @karmarkar_kiran @shweta.tiwari
