Shivangi Joshi pens an emotional letter as she bids goodbye to Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai; says ‘it felt like meri bidaai ho rahi hai’
Actor Shivangi Joshi who is popularly known for her role as Naira or Sirat from Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai has bid her farewell to the longest-running show. After Akshara and Naitik, another couple that completely swooned everyone over with their sizzling chemistry was Kartik and Naira aka Mohsin Khan and Shivangi Joshi. Due to the change in the storyline and the makers taking a leap, the leads of the show have now quit the show. As they have dedicated 5 years to the show, it is obviously an emotional goodbye for the team. Speaking of which, Joshi took to her Instagram account and penned a long and emotional note, explaining the feelings that she felt on the last day on YRKKH.
As per her post, Joshi mentioned that she got a breakthrough in May 2016 when Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai happened to her. She wrote, “The day is such that tears are rolling off my eyes and even if I want, I am unable to stop them. There comes a point in your life when you meet new people, and they create such an impact that they create a place in your heart for life. That point in my life came in May 2016 when I first entered Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai sets. I never knew that set would literally be my second home and those people whom I didn’t know would eventually be my family.”
Recalling her shooting days on the sets of Rajan Shahi’s production venture, Joshi further wrote, “Close to 6 years with Yeh Rishta…and I can proudly say that Yeh Rishta bahot kuch kehlata hai. It wasn’t just a show, it was my life, my home. I have cried here, laughed here, giggled at silly jokes, danced randomly, played with kids, had food with everyone, gave silly expressions when was supposed to give serious look, got scolded by my director, got applause from the whole team when I gave a good shot, the list could be endless.”
She even mentioned that the farewell seemed like a bidaai to her as it was emotional. She wrote, “When I was leaving the sets for the last time, it felt as if meri bidaai ho rahi hai… everyone associated with the show was there to bid goodbye and we all were crying. For an outsider, it would have been no less than a girl’s bidaai scene. I take all possible emotions a human being would have from the sets of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai.”
