Saumya Tandon popularly known as the ‘gori mem’ or Anita bhabhi from &TV’s popular comedy show Bhabijii Ghar Par Hai has amazed audiences with her flawless performance in the show. One thing that not many people know about is her first reaction when she was offered the famous character. Recently Saumya revealed that she was apprehensive about taking up the show and that she took almost seven months to give her nod.
Saumya said “Nothing inspiring was coming my way. I wanted to take up a seasonal or non-fiction show because being committed to a daily soap is nothing short of a marriage. It’s a huge decision, which is why I developed cold feet. However, ‘Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai’ seemed to be the perfect choice, as I am not cut out for a mythological show, a typical saas-bahu saga or a slapstick comedy.”
When asked if she was apprehensive about taking up the show as the concept of Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai is about two neighbours hitting on each other’s wives, a concept that could have easily bordered on crudity and vulgarity, she said “I was really scared, but fortunately, everything turned out fine. I won’t take any credit for it, though. The show is blessed with a great team.”
