SET Television's latest venture, Amber Dhara seems to have the medical profession in a tizzy. For the liver sharing conjoined twins in this daily are shown to be fraternal( different actresses) According to Dr. Piyush S. Goyal, MD, Honorary Consultant Obstetrician & Gynaecologist,
Wadia Hospital for Women, Parel, this is not possible, for conjoined twins are always monozygotic (identical twins) that is a single fertilized egg splitting to develop into two fetuses. Conjoined twins can only be formed, when such above identical twins fail to completely separate into two individuals.The channel is right in saying that such births are very rare, one in 200,000 births.

However the channel is sticking to its gun, Sanjay Upadhaya, creative director, Sony Entertainment television says that "Our extensive research proves that this is not necessary. and conjoined twins can be non identical as well." Whom to believe now ?

bansal_nidhi 2007-09-29T15:19:34Z twins don't have to have things in common. I know a pair of twins that are sooo different that you can't even tell they are related. I also don't get where Ambar Dhara are connected, the doc showed their sides connected, but that's fake, their arms should at least be connected.

Gracella 2007-09-28T00:57:45Z well i'm sure they must have done some research for sure to make the some as believable as possible!

i can only say that i don't care that much about whom to bleive or not....as long as the soap stays interesting!

Coz AD rocks!

Athena 2007-09-27T18:55:52Z First of all the twins shown in the show are not really attached, they are two differenta actresses. Moreover, the show has gone about with an error, which is that they are showing Siamese twins who are fraternal, which is not possible. Siamese twins are supposed to be identical. Siamese twins are born when one egg, which splits in two (to form identical twins) does not completely split, hence the formation of Siamese twins. Some people are saying that it is a rare possibility that they can be fraternal. I have never heard of that before, I have always understood Siamese twins to be identical. And even if it is possible, why show somethign which is less likely to happen.
