MUMBAI: Majority of the Indian households depend on Hindi TV soaps for their regular entertainment’s dosage. That’s how the show’s stars turn into our favourite telly stars and they get to enjoy massive popularity, even over a few Bollywood actors.
Most of the highest TRP grossing shows are a huge hit not only in India, but also in overseas markets of Turkey, Egypt, the African countries or of the Central Asian countries.
These Hindi TV serials in general, extend over a longer time period to keep the audience engaged in it’s storyline while the makers keep on adding more twists to these stories with their primary characters’ death, their memory loss or undergoing plastic surgeries after an accident, etc.
To establish these transformations in the show’s storyline, even the characters have to mould themselves accordingly (mostly getup-wise).
