Actress Devoleena Bhattacharjee, popular as ‘Gopi Bahu’ of “Saath Nibhana Saathiya”, says that to be a protagonist on an Indian TV show, it is essential to play a “bahu” (daughter-in-law).

“Ever since the show (‘Saath…’) went off-air, people have been asking me what kind of roles I would like to pick for my next. I want to do strong and realistic roles. To be a protagonist on an Indian TV show, you need to play a ‘bahu’. This is very common,” Devoleena said in a statement.

Apart from fictional dramas, she is also open to doing reality shows based on dance.
