Talking about playing Anita Bhabi in Bhabijji Ghar Par Hain, Vidisha Srivastava said it will be a big challenge and a great opportunity. She said,
“It’s a great opportunity and a big challenge at the same time. I believe that the producers auditioned a lot of actresses for the character. But I was finalized overnight. I strongly feel that I am fit for the part, both in terms of looks and performance. Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain! Is definitely a turning point in my career and can be termed my biggest break so far. The saying, slow and steady wins the race, holds true in my case. All the hard work has paid off.”
