Saath Nibhana Saathiya 2: Rupal Patel CONFIRMS her return as Kokila

Rupal Patel will be joining Devoleena Bhattacharjee and Mohammad Nazim in Saath Nibhana Saathiya 2. The actress has confirmed that the channel and the makers of both the shows have assured her which made her change her mind and say yes to SNS.


The makers of Saath Nibhana Saathiya are coming up with a second season. The show was a huge hit back when it originally aired in 2010. It successfully ran for about 7 years before going off-air in 2017. And now, three years later here we are back again. But this time they are coming up with a new story and new faces. This time the makers will narrate the story of Gehna. Now, as per the latest report, fresh faces will be a part of the show. Sneha Jain will be making her debut as Gehna while Harsh Nagar will join Saath Nibhana Saathiya 2 as the male lead.

Devoleena Bhattacharjee would be reprising her role as Gopi Bahu in the show. Fans of the show wondered whether Rupal Patel or any other casts from the show including Mohammad Nazim would be seen returning as their characters. While Devoleena and Mohammad were confirmed, Rupal Patel who played Kokila ben on the show was skeptical to do two shows at a time. Rupal is playing the role of Meenakshi Rajvansh in Rajan Shahi's Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke. But now, the actress has had a change of heart and has agreed to be a part of the show. "There cannot be SNS 2 without its Koki," the actress told Mumbai Mirror.

Kokilaben from Saath Nibhana Saathiya was a righteous lady. She would never differentiate between her children and her daughter-in-law/s and would treat them alike. Though a bit strict, Kokilaben was loved by everyone. "Of course, I’m a lot more flexible and fun. But even today, young girls tell me that they want a mother-in-law like Koki," the actress exclaimed.

Talking about her inhibitions (on doing two shows together) and what made her say yes for the second season, the actress said, "I couldn’t sleep the night I was approached for SNS 2 as I prefer doing one show at a time. But the channel, Rajan sir and Rashmi ma’am have assured me that we will figure out a way to ensure that everything proceeds smoothly." Rupal is quite confident that the second season will be a hit as well. "Krishna Bhagwan ki saugandh, if season 2 is not a superhit, mera naam bhi Kokila Modi nahin," she said in her Kokilaben style.

The makers of Saath Nibhana Saathiya 2 are eying for a Navratri week launch.
