Amar Upadhyay, who gained popularity after playing Mihir Virani in ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’, shared enthralling tales during the programme. He also talked about the intense fandom surrounding his depiction of Mihir, which reached new heights when his character met an untimely end on the programme.

Amar Upadhyay, who played in one of the most renowned sitcoms on Indian television, ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’, told Siddharth Kannan that his on-screen persona of Mihir has eclipsed every other job he has done. He talked up the affection he received from fans over the show's run.

The actor recalled an event, stating that it had just been six months before ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ had aired, and he had gone on a family trip to the Taj Mahal. Amar stated that he had no notion of his fame at the time. "I went on Friday and didn't realise there was free entry for all Indians that day," he explained. “Someone noticed me, and everyone knew Mihir was around within seconds. The crowd snatched me up and took me away from my family. Security had to be called in. But by the time I got out, my clothes were ripped, and I hadn't even seen the Taj Mahal."

Later, the Bob Biswas actor revealed how his fame skyrocketed when Mihir Virani died on the programme. "Some 25 ladies gathered outside the Balaji Telefilms office and began pelting stones at the building because they were extremely upset with Mihir's death," Amar Upadhyay remembered. “They were smashing the window glass and asking, "Why did you kill him?" 'Who told you to murder him?' "We were all like, 'Yes, it worked.'"
