I have to do it, it’s my duty. You do some things in life not for money or materialistic things but for your mental satisfaction or emotional reasons. My emotional reason was that Sasural Simar Ka made me what I am today, so now, if I can give back to the makers, I cannot refuse no matter what.” Sasural Simar Ka aired from 2011 to 2018.
