Devoleena Bhattacharjee is back as Gopi bahu on Saath Nibhaana Saathiya 2. The actress, who was last seen on Bigg Boss 13, is back as the iconic Gopi bahu. With Mohammad Nazim and Rupal Patel also joining the cast, the foundation of Saath Nibhaana Saathiya 2 is same as the first show. Here are excerpts of an interview with Devoleena Bhattacharjee…
Tell us a bit about the revamped version of Gopi Bahu?
Gopi Bahu is in a new avatar. She has changed a lot. Gopi has groomed herself a lot, and people must have guessed it from the promo. As the show launches and we get to see the episodes, we will see the new version of Gopi.
What are your emotions right now?
I am very happy. See, my emotions are just like Salman Khan when he makes a comeback to a Dabangg film. I am over the moon. I feel this is a blessing.
Your fans wanted to see you in a music video or web series after BB13…
Even I was hoping for the same. I really wanted to do something different. But then if it is Gopi, I do not see anyone else doing it. Woh chance kisi aur ko dene ka mann nahi kiya…I cannot give away Gopi just like that.
How was it like returning to the same camp?
It is a blessing working with the same unit and production house. I have a fab bond with Rashami ma’am (Rashami Sharma) and Pawan sir. It is like working in a comfort zone. I just hope kisi ki nazar na lage.
Do we see a more progressive version than the first season?
In Saath Nibhaana Saathiya 2, we have two families. I am sure it is going to be more progressive version. The writers have worked hard on it. Whether it was Saath Nibhaana Saathiya or Bigg Boss 13, the shows that I have worked in have been number one. I was in BB13 and it touched new heights. I really want SNS2 to shine. I have a feeling we will hit the bull’s eye. We are working hard and hope to get that love from the audience.
Do you see the back injury as a huge professional setback?
Yeah, it was a huge setback. I was very upset. After a lot of deliberations, I agreed to do Bigg Boss 13. I really wanted to compete till the end of the season, but sadly it did not materialise. But I have a positive attitude. I needed to give this time to my health or else I could not have done this show.
Tell us about the look for Gopi in the new season
I am always involved in every character. Gopi is very special for me. I have made special efforts to get into the look and the character. Nishaji is the stylist. I have given my inputs on it.
We wish Devoleena all the best for the new endeavour!
