Kudos to them as they have taken our prank sportingly and got themselves the title of "Bakra" on Tellybuzz!! As it is the ability to take a joke, not make one, that proves that you have a sense of humor!
We came up with a make-believe question for the bahus of Indian Television :
It has been learnt that the Government of Maharashtra has declared 1st of January as Saas-Bahu day in honour of daily soaps. What are your comments on it and how would you celebrate the day?
Here are the Prompt Replies of our Favourite Bahus......
This is simply great, thanks to Ekta and her saas-bahu sagas, we have now got a day in honor of the daily soaps. I would say this day is an extension to Women's Day..
Mode of Celebration: I guess we need to celebrate this day in a grand manner with a party thrown. It will be a day when all the saas and bahus of small screen will unite and rejoice.
This was Dimple’s reaction when she learnt it was all a prank: WOW!! I always play prank on others on this day, and I have never fallen prey to such pranks……….
It is a great feat that the Government of Maharashtra has declared Jan 1st for Saas-Bahus of TV. My serial is not the usual saas-bahu one, but I feel happy for other serials like Kyunki.
Mode of Celebration: If I am called to attend the party, then I will surely be a part of it (smiles)
Sreejita’s reaction: Well, I always aim to fool others on this day, but I am so foolish that I get on the receiving end always..
This is really news to me. TV industry has today gained so much of popularity that the Government now has thought of honoring our saas and bahus(laughs). Unfortunately for me, I miss having a saas in my serial.
Mode of Celebration: I would love to be part of the celebration that will help bond the saas and bahus together.
Panchi was mortified when she heard it was a prank: Noooooooooo!!!This is not done. You can't fool me like this (whines).
Awesome!! I guess Mumbai Government is thinking of family peace in daily soaps too. This day should help the saas bahu problems that torment the TV industry, and I think the Government should also take the aid of psychologists to spread awareness of this day.
Mode of Celebration: I had a very good saas in my serial. All the problems that I faced was from my Nanand.. Please tell me when the Government is declaring a day for Bahu- Nanand?
Divyanka was equally stunned to learn it was a joke: Oh No!!!This was a real good prank, I completely believed it, but although I was wondering why the Government chose to celebrate this day (laughs non-stop)…
Its good that people are celebrating this day. There are many such days which are celebrated, so I think celebrating one day in honour of Saas-Bahu is a very nice thought.
I don't think there needs to be a special day to celebrate the relation between a saas and her bahu.
Mode of Celebration: Like I said I don't need a special day to celebrate with my mother-in-law in real life or with my bahu in reel life. So we celebrate Saas bahu day the whole year round.
That was sentimental, But Gautami dear, it was just a joke: It was a very beautiful and funny prank. I loved it, in fact I had completely forgotten today was 31st of March. It's fun to play such on people at times (laughs).
It's a revolutionary step for the the television industry. From the time Ekta Ma'am has started her saas bahu shows, the whole perspective of television has changed. So I think it's quite nice to know that the Government also thinks about all the saas-bahus of television.
Mode of Celebration: I think I would spend the entire day working and having fun with my unit members.
And what does Shubhangi have to say when we tell her it's not for real: Actually I had a doubt somewhere at the back of my mind that the whole thing was not true and just cooked up by you guys. But then again I thought, who knows it might be true. People play pranks on me very rarely, but I must say you guys succeeded there (laughs).
