There is a lot of excitement and anticipation amongst the viewers to welcome the new Anita Bhabi, aka Vidisha Srivastava, in &TV’s cult-comedy, Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai. While the industry is abuzz about the entry, one thing that has caught everyone’s attention is Vidisha Srivastava’s striking and uncanny resemblance to talented Bollywood actor Yami Gautam!
Talking about it, Vidisha Srivastava shares, “It is a huge compliment for me to be compared with Yami Gautam. She is a very talented actor and has an impressive body of work. People have often shared several pictures to prove the striking and uncanny resemblance. Initially, I was taken aback, but now I smile when someone points it out to me. It is interesting to be compared as it serves as a motivation, in a way. After all, we both are artists and give our best to our work. I have tremendous love and respect for her work. She is a very beautiful, hard-working, talented, and kind person. Very few people know that she and I shared the screen space in one of the South films, and it was an absolute delight to work with her. She is a good actress and a very good human being. It is believed that we all have about six to seven people who look like us across the world. So, in a way, I am glad to at least find one, and I am sure the same goes for Yami too!” (Laughs).
On receiving a tremendous response on her entry as new Anita Bhabi in &TV’s Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai, Vidisha comments, “I am completely overwhelmed. My phone has not stopped ringing ever since the news got out. There’s not a single day when someone messages or calls to share their joy and excitement. People around me have been super excited and looking forward to seeing me as their new Anita Bhabi. The feeling is so beautiful. I have started shooting already, and I am eagerly looking forward to my friends, family, and fans watching me on-screen soon and sharing their feedback. It is an honour and a big moment for me. Words cannot adequately express my feeling and gratitude. It is a role of a lifetime, and I am delighted to be given an opportunity."
