BFC: The ideal TV family

We chalked out a list of our idea of the perfect small screen family.

Shreya Sethuraman




The one and only Dadisa (Kalyani Devi), from Balika Vadhu. She’s strong, fierce and single-handedly holds the domestic reins. Oh, and we love her!




There was nobody worthy of being paired with Dadisa. Seriously. No Dada is as lovable. Don’t you agree?

Ideal father:

Sudhir Sharma (Bade Achhe Lagte Hain). He’s more than understanding, and easily the most loving father on screen.

familyIdeal mother:

Suhasini Singh (Kya Hua Tera Vada). Strict, loving, and will go to any length to correct her philandering son.

Ideal son:

Bhairon Singh (Balika Vadhu). Stands up to his mother when she’s wrong, yet maintains his identity.

Ideal daughter:

Priya Kapoor (BALH). Respects her mother even though mom is a pain, and shares the best father-daughter chemistry with onscreen father

Ideal son-in-law:

Shivraj Shekhar (Balika Vadhu). Tall, dark, handsome. And he’s a Collector too!

Ideal daughter-in-law:

Anandi Singh (Balika Vadhu). Duuh! Tireless crusader, and more than an all-rounder.

Ideal sister:

Jeevika (Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai). Protective, doting and motherly to younger sister Manvi, Jeevika is THE older sister!

Ideal brother:

Arnav Singh Raizada (Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon). The undying love he has for elder sister Anjali cannot be fathomed. Easy to guess why he’s the best!
