Exclusive – Jayati Bhatia on reuniting with Dipika Kakar on Sasural Simar Ka 2: A day before I was to start shoot, Dipika’s face and the title track started playing in my headJayati Bhatia and Dipika Kakar Ibrahim, who played the popular mother-in-law, daughter-in-law pair – Mataji and Simar, are soon returning to the small screen with the second season of their hit show Sasural Simar Ka. This time the seasoned actress will be seen reprising the role of Mataji’s sister Geetanjali Devi, who is also a matriarch of the family and is looking for an ideal girl for her grandson. Recently, ETimes TV caught up with seasoned actress Jayati Bhatia for an exclusive conversation and the actress shared about her first day on the sets of SSK 2 and how was it reuniting with Dipika aka Simar. Jayati Bhatia shared that a day before she was to start shooting for the show, Dipika’s face and the title track of the show started playing in her head.
“A day before I was to start shooting for Sasural Simar Ka 2, I don’t know why but mere dimaag mein sirf Dipika ka chehra aaraha tha… and the title song of our show. Because I knew the next day I am going to meet her. When I went on the sets the next day, Dipika first came to meet me in my room before going to her makeup room. We hugged each other and were laughing. I don’t know why we were giggling away to glory. Maybe we were too happy,” said the actress
Jayati Bhatia and Dipika shared screen space for six years on SSK, before the latter decided to part ways with the show. Talking about their first shot on season 2, the senior actress said, “When we went to give our shot we both knew how Simar and Mataji would react and we gave our shots the exact way. We have got so used to it. There has been a comfort and a bond. It is now like a second nature to us. We gave our shot and sat down and we were just remembering our Bharadwaj family. We remembered each and every member of our family and so many instances that we had shot in the first season. In fact, we were wondering if there will be similar scenes in the second season. We were also wondering if anyone from the previous season will also join us in the future episodes. We were very excited discussing all this.”
Jayati Bhatia was all praise for Dipika and shared that she still remembers her likes and dislikes, “Also in all these years Dipika has done Nach Baliye, Bigg Boss 12, Kahaan Hum Kahaan Tum so I keep taking update about all these three projects from Dipika. We are constantly chattering when we are together. I keep asking her questions and she keeps answering them. She still remembers and knows the things I like and dislike. We know each other very well. And it is so wonderful to see that she still remembers. She remembers that at 4:30, I like have my coffee with a cake,” she revealed.
Dipika and Jayati Bhatia also chatted about their original Prem aka Shoaib Ibrahim, who is now Dipika’s husband.
Speaking about Shoaib, the veteran actress disclosed an interesting habit of the actor and in fact quizzed Dipika if he still continues to do it, “When I met her my first question was about Shoaib to Dipika that does he still listen to the 90s songs. The most interesting thing about Shoaib is I remember when I had met him in Sasural Simar Ka season 1, he would sing such songs that nobody would know about. He would sing 90s songs but I have not heard them. He will sing a song from a hit 90s film but he will choose the most unpopular song from that film. My first question to her was about it. I asked her does he still listens them? and she said he was listening to one of them last night and she had told Shoaib that she will update Mataji about it when she meets me on the first day of shoot,” she said.
She applauded Shoaib for his amazing transformation, “I also told him the kind of drastic change that Shoaib has gone through in these years. From the time I met him he has become very confident and he is very conscious of his health which is a great turnaround for a person. We keep discussing about Dipika’s parents, in-laws and health,” concluded the actress.
