TV shows in India are said to be close to the audience and somewhat related to the day-to-day life. But with the increasing competition of high TRPs and popularity of the show, some makers forget about the real life. Though daily soaps have become an essential part of the time everyday life of housewives, some of the shows get far from the reality.
There are a number of strange things shown in Indian daily soaps to make them more dramatic and progressive. There are certain things that can be seen in almost all the daily soaps. One of the biggest common factors in most of the Indian TV serials is the concept of remarriage. No doubt people opt for second marriage in case of failed first marriage or due to any other situation, but the makers of TV serials are way more progressive. They don’t feel that just one marriage makes them progressive. So they show multiple marriages of the same character. Sometimes it is shown with the same person but in some serials the character marries different persons.
Let’s have a look at the TV characters who married more than once in serials:
