Amar Upadhyay Aka Mihir Virani Of Kyuki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi Says “Was Skeptical About The Role As It Only Had Women”
Kyuki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi was one of the longest running TV soaps on Indian TV industry. It brought the saas bahu revolution im the era and Ekta Kapoor sure bagged a number of awards for the show. The show was about the Virani family that had many many generations and family members living under the same roof. One of the main leads on the show was Tulsi Virani and hrr husband Mihir Virani. Now, the male lead has talked about his role and scepticism about the same.
Speaking to Times Of India, Amar aka Mihir said, “When I accepted the role of Mihir, I was a little skeptical because I felt there are only women in the show and what I will get to do in it. The name itself suggests saas and bahu and there is no mention of any male, what will be my role. I was told I am the hero, but I always felt that there are so many female characters in the show like my chachi, mother, Baa, wife then an entire negative family. So, all these things were coming into my mind. But who knew that my character Mihir Virani would be such a big hit. I just did my job with full honesty and that time also I had not seen the future. My character and the show both became successful.”
“People still love and admire Mihir even after 20 years. I never imagined in my dreams that people will remember me as Mihir even after 20 years. So, when I did those films I did not know the future. The films did not work and the reason behind it could be any. Maybe my producers did not promote the film much, maybe I did not choose the films wisely. It was a learning experience for me and I feel till the time you don’t fall in life, you don’t gain experience and learn,” Amar added.
