TV audiences remember her as Tulsi Virani from the TV show, Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi.

Then, Smriti Irani went on to act in other serials, and even tried her hand at politics. Now, however, she is set to make her Bollywood debut.

The actor will play the role of Abhishek Bachchan’s mother in Mere Apne.

Rishi Kapoor will play her husband in the film that also stars Asin. Producer Bhushan Kumar confirms the news and says, “When we narrated the script to Smriti, she agreed immediately. It’s not just another mother’s role. She has a performance-oriented part in it.”
