When we talk about One of the most popular shows on TV in the early 1990s ‘Dekh Bhai Dekh’, The first thing that comes to our mind is the title song, “Is rang badalti duniya mein…Kya tera hai kya mera hai…”. This show was Produced by Jaya Bachchan and directed by Anand Mahendroo and was the perfect dose of daily humour that we all needed. But as it is said that the good things come in small packages, same as the joy of watching good content and humour was short-lived. The show ‘Dekh Bhai Dekh’ came to end courtesy saas-bahu serials that soon took over our TV screens. ‘Dekh Bhai Dekh’ is still considered as a cult show on Indian Television. Still, none of us have forgotten the endearing Diwan family from Dekh Bhai Dekh. Deven Bhojani, Navin Nischol, Shekhar Suman, and Farida Jalal were seen in their most memorable characters ever. Let’s have a look at what the cast of this show is up to now.
Shekhar Suman wooed the audience with his charm and shot to fame with this show. He played the hilarious, lovable younger son Sameer Diwan in the show and even today Sameer, the super cool chachu, is considered as his most iconic role on the Indian television. He was last seen in the movie ‘Bhoomi’.
Who doesn’t remember the real boss or the matriarch of the family and the social-activist Dadi Sarla Diwan played by Sushma Seth? Sushma is working in the theatres now. She was last seen in the film ‘Noor’.
Sunita Chachi, the adorable choti bahu of the Diwan family and Sameer’s wife on the show is quite a popular face in the Indian television now. She’s now extensively working in theatres. She was last seen in ‘Belan Wali Bahu’ as Premlata Awasthi.
Remember, “Ae ji o ji sunoji”? Farida played the badi bahu Suhasini, the overdramatic character. The actress is a regular face even now in Hindi films and TV shows. Farida was last seen in ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’.
