The tears were real, even though the premise was fictitious. The much-hyped euthanasia track finally got over in Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, with the show-bidding goodbye to Savita (Apara Mehta).
However, it was one of the most difficult things Smriti Z Iraani had to go through. The actress, who lost her grandmother five years ago, broke down during the scene that required her to take the life of her mother-in-law.
"It was the most difficult scene I have ever performed. It wasn't me acting, but actually reliving the exact moment when I lost my grandmother."
Smriti's grandmother suffered from severe rheumatism and was in her early 80s.
"She was one of the strongest women I have known. She suffered silently; not once did she burden me with her troubles and worries. I never got the chance to mourn her loss, since I was pregnant during her demise. After that, I got so caught up with work and family that it was something that always needed some kind of closure."
Iraani couldn't control her emotions on the Kyunki set the day the mercy killing track was to be shot. Revealed an actress close to Smriti, "Everything you saw on screen happened for real. She couldn't control herself and was short of breath. It was a very tense moment on the set, and after that scene, she looked totally drained."
Smriti agreed that doing the scene took a toll on her. "When Apara heard me cry, she just grabbed my hand and held it tight. She figured what I was going through. I never cried for my nani, so in a way, it was the outpouring of everything that was held up for the last five years."
As far as her decision to do the track is concerned, Iraani says she had reservations.
"Yes I wasn't very happy with the mercy killing scene. But the audience has to realise that Tulsi and Smriti are two different people. I have faith in Ekta (Kapoor) and she knows the best for my character and her show.
Also, if the production house and the channel collectively decide to go ahead with the track, who am I to stop them? I have no say in the creative decisions at Balaji."
She adds that even though as Tulsi, she had to put an end to Savita's life, personally, she would never do that. "I believe that if you love your family, you will take care of them till the very end."
