Comedy Nights With Kapil's Mrs Bittu, Sumona Chakravarthi, is very often addressed as Kapil's wife in real life. This she says is embarrassing at occasions when she is out as herself and not her character.
The "bade hoth wali" who is a household name with the success of her stint as Mr Bittu's wife on the comedy show, is often asked questions about her "husband" Kapil's whereabouts.
Sumona apparently gets bombarded with questions related to her to on-screen husband and the beautiful actress is not comfortable when it happens when she is not in her character. For instance when she is out with her friends, she is questioned about Kapil's whereabouts. She says she always replies curtly, "How will I know where Kapil is?" She even says it is embarrassing when this happens too.
Looks like the actress is still getting used to being a popular TV actress. It is not the first time something like this has happend. There are many actresses who are known as their TV character more than what they are in real life.
Talking about one such instance she says, "During Durga Puja last year, a woman put a sindoor on my forehead thinking I am married to Kapil for real."
Comedy Nights With Kapil, the comedy show on Colors TV shot to popularity from the very first episode and the characters including Bittu, Dadi, Gutthi, Palak, Bua, Mrs Bittu, Raju have from then on have become the household names who entertain their families immensly.
