Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai is one of the longest running shows on Indian television right now and while it continues to add newness to the show, it also often happens that characters make exits and new ones keep entering the show, this time around, we have seen yet another replacement in the show, this time, that of Gayu, earlier played by Deblina Chaterjee. Simran Khanna has now joined the show and has replaced Deblina as the latter did not want to play a mother on screen.

We got in touch with Simran and asked her about joining a show that is one of the longest running ones on television right now and how does it feel working with the entire team. The actress quipped, "This feels great and of course the show is very good, with everyone enjoying shooting and everyone is extremely nice on the sets. I am having a great time." When asked if she had any second thoughts about playing a mother on screen, the actress revealed, "No, No. This is not so old on screen and nowadays, things have changed and it does not matter much, it is more about being an actor and their versatility. For me, it doesn't make any difference and I have done similar roles. For an actor and for me, I think it does not matter."
