Rupal Patel, who played Kokila Modi in Saath Nibhaana Saathiya, has been hospitalised. Her husband assured that she is now ‘fine’.
Popular television actress Rupal Patel, who is known for playing Kokila Modi or Kokilaben in Saath Nibhaana Saathiya, has been admitted to a hospital. Reportedly, Patel, who returned to television for the sequel of the show Saath Nibhaana Saathiya 2, is recuperating in a hospital in Mumbai, however, the family has not disclosed any information as to why she has been hospitalised.
Speaking to IndiaToday.com, her husband Radha Krishan Dutt said that she is doing ‘fine’ now. “She is fine now…No worries,” the publication quoted him as saying.
Rupal’s character recently made headlines when a scene and dialogue of the show from the first season became immensely popular after a parody rap song created by Yashraj Mukhate went viral. ‘Rasode Mei Kaun Tha’ became viral on the Internet, so much so that makers decided to bring back the popular show for it’s season 2.
Soon, a second season of the long-running show was launched and she reprised her role of Kokila Modi. However, in just a month, she quit Saath Nibhaana Saathiya 2.
Rupal told leading entertainment portal that she was only asked to be a part of Saath Nibhaana Saathiya 2 for a month. “And now that a month is over, I will be making my exit from the show which was planned. I said yes for this small journey in SNS 2 only because it’s my gratitude to all the fans of Kokilaben and Rupal Patel. I have received so much love from my audience especially for this character and the show that when makers came to me with this idea for joining and supporting them to uplift this it was my moral responsibility as a creative artist to say a yes for it,” she said.
Apart from television shows such as Saath Nibhaana Saathiya and Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke, Rupal has been a part of films such as Antarnaad, Suraj Ka Satvan Ghoda, Mammo and Samar.
