Taking to Instagram, the BMC shared a small clip of Ekta Kapoor’s Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’s title track featuring Union Minister Smriti Irani, who played the lead role of Tulsi there. The clip was posted in the reverse way, where Tulsi is seeing closing the door on the viewers’ faces.
Captioning the video, the BMC said: ‘Kyunki Saans Bhi Bahut Smart Thi.’ She refused the home tour to any visitors, for the safety of her family members during the lockdown.
Since being shared, the post has been viewed over 17,000 times with netizens hailing the corporation’s body efforts to come up with such ideas in terms of spreading awareness.
The video also attracted the attention of the Union Minister herself, who shared it saying, “Saas ho ya Bahu stay at home and keep your loved ones safe”.
