TV producer Ekta Kapoor roped in Union Minister Smriti Irani as a part of her promotions for her new web series Home, which streams on ALTBalaji. Ekta Instagrammed three emotional videos of Ms Irani from her visit to her first home in Gurugram. The videos show Smriti Irani walking up to the society and meeting the residents, some of whom she recognises. She gets extremely emotional after seeing that her old home has been converted into a shop. “It is painful, tough and courageous to see a place you once called ‘Home’, now no longer there. But life is nothing more than a journey of bitter sweet memories,” Ekta captioned one of her posts. Smriti Irani also took a rickshaw ride to her favourite chaat shop and visited an old ration shop.
Let’s take a tour of Smriti Irani’s old home.
HOME is not just made up of four walls, but it is love and family that make a house, a HOME! Watch the emotional journey of @smritiirani as she revisits her childhood home and for the first time shares her #MyHOME story with us @altbalajihttps://t.co/ZiMCfsdNu2

For sure @ektaravikapoor Rewinding time and walking down memory lane- quite literally. HOME se Mumbai tak samay badla, ghar bhi badle. But relationships and memories have stayed strong. https://t.co/TAJZChnJII
