Mumbai, July 4 (IANS) Popular actor Amar Upadhyay donned the role of Mihir in the iconic show ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’, which went on air 22 years ago. The show is now is being re-telecasted on public demand and Amar’s character and his acting is highly appreciated even after two decades.
Amar feels blessed to be a part of the show and talking about the same, the actor says: “Recently Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, completed 22 years. God has been kind to me for this show. It is an iconic show even today and I feel blessed that I got this role between so many boys who auditioned for it.”
“I am very thankful to Ekta and whole team of Balaji for giving me a chance and I’m very happy that I’m a part of it. Even after 20 years people still recognise me as Mihir.”
