Mumbai: Veteran television actress Apara Mehta, who is fondly remembered as Savita Mansukh Virani from Ekta Kapoor's iconic serial "Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi", says it was the only saas-bahu show which had a lot of soul.

Apara, who has been a part of the small screen industry for over two decades, says the other shows started to clone after "Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi" without understanding the soul of the serial.

"The only saas-bahu show was "Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi" because it was about three generations -- Baa, Savita and Tulsi...It was about generations and how things changed when generations changed...later on whatever happened (with other shows) was cloning without understanding the soul of the show," Apara told IANS here.
