Neelu Vaghela who plays stern mother in law as Santosh Arun Rathi is very much loved by the family members and thus is called lovingly as Bhabho. She lives with the moral values and wants everyone in the family to follow the values to maintain the reputation of the family. Her marwadi linguistic and bold expressions add on to her character. She started as the negative character who doesn't give freedom to her Bahus and so she was against the Sandhya's dream who aspires to become an IPS officer.

Thus her character delivered the message to the audience that it is important that women should be strong enough to tackle a situation but shouldn't forget their moral values and culture.
