Gia Manek who is famous for playing the role of the good-natured Gopi Bahu has suddenly reached peak fame due to an Internet meme. Various netizens caught on to a short clip from Saath Nibhaana Saathiya that is about a pressure cooker. The meme is simply called ‘Rasode Mein Kaun Tha.’
In a recent interview with Times of India, Gia Manek spoke about the second season of the show. She said, “I have lived the journey of Gopi bahu. Even when Devoleena joined the show as the new Gopi bahu, I never had any anger for her because, at the end of the day, everyone is doing their job. If not her, someone else would have done it. I don’t know much about the second season, but if they have cast Devoleena again, I am happy for her.”
“I can’t be Gopi bahu all my life. Actors want to play different characters because we don’t want to limit ourselves. If I keep playing Gopi bahu throughout my career, how will it add to my growth? I am greedy as an artist and I feel fortunate to be blessed with versatile opportunities,” she added.
Speaking about the internet meme she said, “Rasode Mein Kaun Tha” into a rap song. On being asked about her reaction to the viral video, Giaa had told Spotboye, “When I saw the video for the first time, I was surprised and thought to myself ki aise scene ke saath kuch aisa bhi ho sakta hai. Aur itna viral bhi ho sakta hai. But I feel extremely grateful that I got an opportunity to be part of such a popular show and got to play an iconic character. Even after 9-10 years, scenes from the show are getting viral and that is a big compliment for me. I am enjoying this video immensely.”
