Take a moment and imagine your life without Indian TV serials. Boring, right? Where else would you find every single member of the family waking up to a bhajan (one that is audible to everyone) in the morning? That is not all. Where on earth would you find people clad in such heavy clothing and jewelry even when they sleep? Better still, a thaali dropping, because…apshagun.
Above all, it is indeed the variety of characters that make Indian TV serials so much fun. Irrespective of which TV serial you're watching, one thing is for sure – most of them are essentially similar.
Here are six characters you will probably find in every Indian TV serial:
The immortal daadi
Yeah, she stays sixty forever, come what may. Even after her great grandson's great grandson.
Ji haan, aap shayad ise pehchan nahi paa rahe hain! Kyu ki, kyu ki, kyu ki, iski teen baar plastic surgery ho chuki hain!
The bahu who keeps doing good deeds even when the entire world conspires against her
She is the epitome of sanskaar – Alok Nath's favorite.
And now her cunning saasu maa
If she didn't exist, who would think of thousand ways to belittle the daughter-in-law?
The jaan of the parivaar, possibly the youngest sibling in the family. She loves everyone. Everyone loves her. Period.
The boy who hates the girl initially, only to fall in love with later
Who cares if he fights with her over silly things? He will eventually land up marrying her.
