EXCLUSIVE: Shivangi Joshi on Naira’s farewell in YRKKH: I had tears; miss Kaira already
Shivangi Joshi has lived and breathed the role of Naira in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai (YRKKH). Shivangi recently bid a farewell to her character Naira in a big twist coming up on the show. As the show recently completed 12 years of telecast and 3300 episodes, we exclusively spoke to Shivangi, who opened up on missing Naira and Kaira already. She also opened up on her mother Yashoda Joshi’s reaction to Naira’s character ending and more.
“I miss Naira a lot. I feel you guys and understand the sentiments, your emotions that you have been attached to the character. I am myself attached given that I played it for over 4 and a half years and in these last few years, I was more Naira than Shivangi, so for me it has been an emotional journey for me as well. When the story was being narrated to me, I had tears that Naira is going to die. I couldn’t stop my tears, so I know how the fans must be feeling. It is difficult,” Shivangi told us.
“I will miss Naira and Kaira but lets see what happens,” Shivangi added that her mother was also inconsolable when she saw the scene of Naira falling off the cliff. The actress also opened up on the challenges she faced while playing Naira and how she is looking forward to the new journey as well.
Shivangi Joshi has received many awards and love for playing Naira in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai.
