She has done plenty of roles before and after it, but Jaya Bhattacharya is still popularly remembered for her portrayal of Payal on ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’. Even after a decade of the show’s end, people call her by the name, much to her annoyance. In an interview to a daily, she recalled stepping out with Smriti Irani for a coffee while the show was on. Smriti, who was seven months pregnant at the time, held her hand for support, when suddenly a lady pulled her hand away and told Smriti, ‘Iss aurat ke sath mat jao yeh gandi aurat hai. Chhod do isse. (Don’t go with this woman, she’s a bad person).’ Jaya, who couldn’t help but laugh, took this as a compliment, instead.
