One cannot deny the fact that the viral rap of the ‘Rasode Mein Kaun Tha’scene is the best thing that happened to the Internet during the lockdown. This is the reason why the daily soap Saath Nibhana Saathiya has become the talk of the town lately. The makers announced the second season of the popular show, days after the video created by musician Yashraj Mukhate became one of the widely appreciated things.
Now, right after the release of the SNS 2 teaser, a video featuring the famous scene’s central character has surfaced online. Rupal Patel aka Kokilaben, who like many others was impressed by the musical version, gave a retake of her own lines. She takes it sportingly and attempts to recreate the sensation by lip-syncing the lyrics of the rap song.
The video is shared by Ahmedabad Mirror, the special performance enacted by Rupal Patel aka Kokilaben is totally cool.

Rupal finally opened up on her video taking the Internet by storm, she said, “Since Saathiya, the Koki image has stayed on with me, wherever I go, people recognize me for the character. But I never saw this coming. In fact, I didn’t know about it until my sister-in-law shared the video with me. Later my co-actor, Rhea Sharma, and son told me about how popular this has become. I’m not on social media, so wasn’t aware earlier. My immediate reaction was surprise and shock. I was perplexed about how Yashraj got this clip since I never sang on the show. Later, I realized that it’s a rap and he has used my dialogues for it (laughs!). I liked it so much that I asked a few friends for his number. I spoke to him and expressed my gratitude.”
Meanwhile, the recently launched promo of a popular show had Devoleena Bhattacharjee, who will be seen reprising the role of Gopi bahu.
Rashmi Sharma, the producer of the show confirmed the second season, and said, “During the lockdown, reruns were widely watched and that made us believe this is a good time to bring it back with a new season. Saathiya can’t return without the Modi family, so yes, Kokilaben and Gopi will be back.”
