What is an Indian Television show without an extraordinary and engaging Saas-Bahu duo? As long as you can remember, it is these duos that have spiced up daily soaps.

Giving a new twist to the saas-bahu saga, the story of Anandi Baa and her beloved bahu Gunjan starts with a bang on Star plus’s latest show Anadibaa aur Emily. Instead of the lead, the saas-bahu jodi that is catching audience’s attention is that of Anadi baa and Gunjan. This duo is redefining the relationship, as the Saas Anandibaa is shown doing Bahu Pujan of her beloved daughter-in-law Gunjan. It is an unconventional jodi which adds to the quirkiness of the show.
The super talented Amruta Subhash plays Suman - the bahu who makes the achaar. The totally adorable Dadi - who stands by Suman and encourages her in the achaar endeavour- is played by Yamini Das. The duo makes the show eminently watchable. Amruta Subhash carries the show on her delicate shoulders, emoting with her heart. Her easy relationship with her ex-mother-in-law is so wonderful, we barely see the strain in her relationship with her daughter Juhi.
Alpana Buch is brilliantly portraying the character of Leela Shah in Star Plus' popular drama series Anupamaa. The actress has won several hearts with her stellar performance in the show. Anupama and Leela have a rather conventional relationship but what makes it unique is Leela’s inexplicit respect for her daughter-in-law. This really adds up to the relatability factor of the show as, in real life too mother-in-law are known for being less expressive of their love and respect towards their bahus. The originality of these relationships is what keeps audience hooked to this show.
Airs on Star Plus from Monday to Saturday at 10pm.
Neelam plays a grey character as Lakshmi’s mother-in-law in Zee TV’s popular show Bhagya Lakshmi.
