A popular joke doing the rounds on the sets of
Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai
is about actors Karan Mehra and Sara Khan opening an acting school in partnership with their respective love interests, actors Nisha Rawal and Ali Merchant. Everyone is joking that Mehra, who apparently can’t deliver a line correctly or emote appropriately, has opened a school to teach aspiring actors. No one on the sets is taking the school seriously.
