Smriti Irani reveals she was called for shoot the next day after her miscarriage

Recently, in an interview, Smriti Irani was quoted saying, “I was not aware that I am pregnant. I was on the set (of Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi) and I told them I am not well enough to shoot and asked to be allowed to go home. But still, I worked, and by the time they let me go, it was evening already. The doctor suggested I go for a sonography. On my way, I started bleeding, and I remember it was raining. I stopped an auto and asked the driver to take me to the hospital. I reached the hospital, a nurse came running to ask for an autograph, while I was bleeding. I gave her the autograph, and asked her, ‘Admit kar loge, I think I am miscarrying.’”

She further said that later she got a call from the production team of Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, and was asked to come to work the next day. Smriti said, “I said, ‘I told you I am not well, I just had a miscarriage’ The person replied, ‘Koi nahi, 2 baje ki shift mein aa jaiye.’” The next day when she came to the sets, she found out that a co-actor filled her producer’s ear regarding the news of her miscarriage being fake. Smriti said, “The person didn’t realise that I have returned because I needed money to pay EMIs for my house. The next day, I took all my medical papers to Ekta to tell her it is not a drama. She got uncomfortable and told me not to show the papers. I told her, ‘Foetus bacha nahi, warna woh bhi dikha deti.”
