Kashyap parivaar's hilarious neighbour who has a daughter who she refers to as Beautiful Babli.
Deepak is Radha's son.
A rich spoilt girl, Suhana lost her mother at the tender age of five and was brought up by her father who pampered her as he couldn’t afford to see her sad. With a life full of luxuries where she has got everything she desired, Suhana believes only in the best and has never settled for anything mediocre. With all the money and brands at her behest, she is a little stubborn and has no clue of budgeting or managing finances. A complete contrast to the hero Ishaan, Suhana lives for herself and has never made any adjustments for others. Moving from her palatial house complete with all the luxuries to Ishaan’s middle class joint family, Suhana will have to face a different side of life where adjustments and compromise is essential.
A simple young boy who is not as expressive as the other members in his family, Ishaan is unable to find a girl he can marry. His family is frustrated by the ongoing negotiations and rejections by the girls’ families. Though there are no concrete grounds for being rejected, the bottom line is that Ishaan gets rejected. Employed in a private firm as a software Engineer, he is respected for his skills but it’s his simplicity that comes his way. However when Suhana enters his life it is this simplicity that wins her over. Extremely patient by nature, Ishaan is seldom bothered about his family teasing him all the time. He is a man of few words who tries to stay from any confrontation, argument or fight. He loves his family and is sensible enough to understand a complex character like Suhana. He understands her well and gives her the much needed time and space so that she can discover the warmth of his family and his love for her.

She loves her sister and strongly feels that Suhana needs the right man in her life. In Ishaan, she sees the man who will genuinely love her sister and give her all the attention she deserves.
As funny as Dadu, Dadi is sharp and outspoken. She always fights with her husband but deep down she loves him and does everything for him. They have two sons [Eeshwar and Aalok] and a married daughter Usha who is not alive anymore but her son Ilesh also stays in the same house. Dada and Dadaji are lively characters and the only time they become sad is when the topic of their elder son Eeshwar is raised. Gayatri has seen her elder son leaving the family & her only daughter’s death. She has the philosophy of living life in the moment and living it happily.
She is Inder’s wife. She has come from a rich family. She is very generous. She doesn’t have much dream or desire. All she wants to have is the family she is living with and she is happy with the household things. She know's the family rules and respects them. She has a cute daughter named Meethi.
The lifeline of the family, Radha is not a blood relative but everybody treats her as family. Addressed as didi, she does all the work and executes what Shailja plans. Be it the doodh wala, paper wala or kirana wala, everyone has to deal with her. She is a caring person and Ishaan is her favourite in the house. But there is something mysterious about her. She has a strange relationship with her son Karan who lives in a hostel. Nobody talks about it but everyone is aware that there is some intriguing element.
Ishaan’s father, Alok is like the Laxman of the house. He works in a bank and earns for the family and with the help of his bhabhi Shailja he takes care of household matters. He respects his bhabhi and discusses everything with her. He loves his wife Jaanki who is a kind woman and both are very happy with their children Ishaan, 25 and the younger daughter, 21 Ishika.
Ishaan’s mother, she is a very simple woman who is happy to have no bigger responsibility since Shailja handles everything. Shailja takes care of her and Ranoo looks up to Shailja like her husband. Everyone takes advantage of Ranoo’s simplicity however not in a shrewd manner. The only thing that worries her is her son Ishaan’s marriage.
