"Is rang badalti duniya mein kya tera hai kya mera hai, dekh bhai dekh …
Har shaam ke baad savera hai, dekh bhai dekh…."
If you’re humming along and smiling as you read these lines, we are sure you’re already back to those glorious days of the 90s. Dekh Bhai Dekh is one of those early sitcoms that got the family together before a TV set and laugh heartily. The comedy was brilliantly executed by great actors; more than anything else, the roles were essayed in a way that was very relatable . Some of these actors aren’t with us anymore and others have moved on to different roles in and outside the industry. Let’s take a look at the Diwan family and how things have changed since their Dekh Bhai Dekh days.
