Indian audience had an overdose of typical Saas-Bahu dramas wherein the actresses are confined within six yards of clothes and a dozen of trinkets. But in a recent while, several TV serials have forayed into the world of television, with an off-beat subject and equally diverse characters. The female leads of the serials are no longer ‘damsels in distress’. Among all these strong-headed characters, there were some who managed to stand out and carve a niche for themselves. Here are some of the off-beat characters of the TV serials that will be remembered by the audience for their ingenuity.
Mouni Roy as Shivangi in Naagin
The supernatural role has been perfectly essayed by television’s most loved actress Mouni Roy. No wonder why the show became an instant hit among the audience. The way her character evolved from a normal human being to a vicious Naagin was well accepted by the Telephiles.
