Sharing the picture, Smriti wrote on Instagram late Saturday, “To the man who now has our heart @arjun_bhalla welcome to our madcap family .. bless you for you have to deal with a crazy man for a father in law & worse .. me for a Saas … (you have been officially warned) God bless @shanelleirani #newbeginnings.”

Smriti Irani played the lead role in one of the earliest Ekta Kapoor’s serials - Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. She played the righteous matriarch Tulsi Virani on the show, which aired from 2000 to 2008. The TV show that topped popularity charts, showcased the different equations that mothers-in-law, daughters-in-law, and sons-in-law share in Indian families.

Earlier this year, Smriti shared a video from the show and wrote on Instagram, “We had made a promise ‘Phir Milenge (we will meet again)’, a promise we could not keep… 21 years ago began a journey which changed many a lives - brought joy to some, annoyed a few but impacted all those who saw it, who worked for it. Thank you for the memories!”
