The woman went on and on with her sermons, and never gave Rashmi a chance to talk. Once the lady was done, Rashmi explained to her that it was her character of Tapasya who was pregnant in the show Uttaran, and in real life she definitely is not in the family way.
We contacted Rashmi to know about the incident and she said, "It feels really great when we get so much of love and appreciation. It feels like our efforts are rewarded. When that lady came up to me and started yelling, I was startled initially. I was confused, but later realized that she actually took my character in the show pretty seriously.. I didn't react to her and gave her a patient hearing.
After a while I broke the ice and we all burst into laughter. It was one of the hilarious moments that I have ever experienced".
Must say, Rashmi is learning all lessons of motherhood even before she thinks of planning a kid...
