for happiness is that I'm a hit with the show too," says Sarita Joshi who essays the character of Baa.

When asked about the memorable moment she verbalizes, "It was Baby's birthday bash where Gattu and other members gave her a huge card. I was happy as this bash was near my birthday too. I remember cutting 17 cakes in that whole month."
Whereas Baa avers, "It was my first shot where early in the morning, I pray to God and everybody is busy getting ready for their daily schedule. I have always started my work by thanking God and incidentally my first shot in the show was same. I will always pray for the success of the show."
