Amid the outbreak of COVID-19, the rerun of a lot of old shows has become the latest trend. After Doordarshan brought back Ramayana and Mahabharata, several other channels are banking on the rerun of popular old shows. Now that the shows like Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai, Khichdi, Balika Vadhu and Qubool Hai to name a few have returned on TV, fans are curious if Ekta will rerun her iconic show Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi led by Ronit Roy and Smirti Irani.

In an exclusive conversation with actor Ronit Roy, we asked whether he would like to see his old shows like Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and Kasautii Zindagii Kay to rerun on TV and the actor quipped, “People have already watched Kyunki.. and Kasautii, and given the fact that they ran for several years, I’m not sure if that would be feasible for rerunning on TV now. Besides they have nothing new to show the audience. Rather than the old shows, I think it’s better to bring OTT content on TV. A lot of people are not able to watch the web series as they don’t have access to these platforms or have not subscribed to it, so they can enjoy watching such shows on TV for free.”
