Devoleena or Giaa...who is real Gopi Bahu?

Do you all know who Gopi Bahu is? It would be such a waste to ask this question. Gopi Bahu….it isn’t just a character or name anymore, it is an iconic character. There would not be a single TV fan who would not know who Gopi Bahu is.

Yes, we are talking about none other than the simple, innocent, docile bahu from Star Plus’s long running show Saath Nibhana Saathiya.

The very popular show which was launched in 2010 immediately clicked with the audience and gave birth to the eternal character of Gopi. The character was played by the pretty actress Giaa Manek and viewers just loved to see her onscreen. The females enjoyed crying with their Gopi Bahu. But the things didn’t remain the same. When in 2012, Giaa left the show and moved on; Devoleena Bhattacharjee was brought on board to play the role of Gopi Bahu.  

At that time, nobody was sure if the replacement will be accepted by the audience. But the spark of the character was that much that people gradually accepted their new Gopi Bahu. While Giaa went ahead and did shows like Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa and Jeanie Aur Juju, her previous show Saathiya kept on doing well even after the replacement and remained popular. But the point is that have the people really forgotten their old Gopi Bahu? We bring you the answer.

Yesterday at the evening of ITA awards (Indian Television Academy Awards), an incident happened which let everyone wondering who the real Gopi is.

Rithvik Dhanjani and Nakuul Mehta were hosting the certain section of awards. And as a part of their comparing session, Rithvik said, ‘Aaj Gopi Bahu kitni achi dikh rahi hai, camera kaha hai? Zara Gopi Bahu pe focus karo’. That was it..

To each and everyone’s surprise, the camera was focused on the ex-Gopi Bahu Giaa. Probably the camera man also remembered Giaa as Gopi Bahu and forgot that now the Gopi Bahu is Devoleena.

Infact when Giaa exited from the awards night, the fans who were gathered outside the event venue started shouting lovingly Gopi Bahu..Gopi Bahu.

Well, we are still confused who is real Gopi? Giaa, who left the show long ago? Or Devoleena, who currently portraying this character and is leaving no stone unturned to do justice to Gopi Bahu's character.

Giaa played the Gopi Bahu much better character than Deboleena. The only serial I used to watch. After Giaa was replaced, I eventually lost interest in the serial. After a period of time,the serial story lead nowhere like the other typical Indian soap operas, have become too boring to watch in recent times.
