Niyati Joshi Replaces Parul Chauhan
Niyati was quoted by TOI as saying, "Yes, I will be playing the role of Swarna on Yeh Rishta... I am very happy to be part of this show. Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai has been on-air since last 10 years and to be a part of the show is like a very big move for me. I know what I am getting into because I am replacing someone and it is not going to be an easy task. But, I am hopeful that the audience will accept me."
Is The Actress Ready For Comparison?
When asked if she is ready for comparison and if there is any pressure, she said, "The pressure is going to be there, but I am ready to face the challenge. The advantage that I feel I will have is that Swarna's character has been missing for last 2/3 months so I think it would be easy to make my way in to the viewers' hearts."
Niyati Doesn’t Mind Playing Grandmother!
Niyati says that she doesn't mind playing grandmother. She added, "I am pretty cool with the idea as I have seen the show and the role of Suwarna is not shown old with grey hair and big glasses. I don't mind playing a grandmother on-screen."
