Unlike today’s serials of Saas Bahu that only crib and cry about how evil the other is, the directors of 1994 had a different way of portraying the idea of the fight between a mother-in-law and daughter-in-law. The directors of Tu Tu Main Main presented this age long idea in a comedy. And it was loved by everyone. For the 6 years, till 2000, that the show went on I really doubt anyone got bored of the show.
Its been 16 years and up till now the cast of Tu Tu Main Main has done innumerable roles but the characters of Devki, Radha and Ravi are still imbibed in our minds. After all how can we forget the cutest relationship between Devki and Radha, who fought but loved each other immensely. And the typical divided situation of Ravi, who was always stuck between taking his wife’s or mother’s side.
The Journey of the Cast of Tu Tu Main Main:
Reema Lagoo as Devaki
Devaki was played by Reema Lagoo. It was the cutest role she ever played. She acted in a number of movies after that mostly playing the role of mother or the mother in law. She earned that role for herself and continued to do justice to it in movies like “Hum Sath Sath Hai”, “Hum Apke Hai Kon”. She also acted in TV shows like Do Hanso Ka Joda, Lakhon Mein Ek etc. But none of her characters could entertain us as much as Devaki.
Recently she worked in a Marathi movie named Katyar Kaljat Ghusli which is based on the play with the same name. She gives voice to Katyar in the movie which released in 2015, directed by Subhodh Bhave.
Supriya Pilgaokar as Radha Verma
Radha was not the ideal bahu, but the “human” bahu. She was a confused and dramatic housewife. However much she acted like she hated her mother in law, she loved her dearly. Her vivacious and colorful character in the show was quite refreshing.
After Tu Tu Main Main, Supriya Pilgaokar was seen doing other serials like Sasural Genda Phool and Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi, for which she recently won the “Best TV MOM” poll. Not only is this magnificent lady a fantastic actress but she is also very talented in the field of dancing. She, along with her husband Sachin Pilgaokar, won the reality show Nach Baliye. Her daughter too is following her footsteps and has recently acted in Shah Rukh Khan’s movie FAN.
Mahesh Thakur as Ravi Bhatt
Mahesh played the role of Radha’s husband Ravi and was definitely the cutest husband of the 1990’s. His character was the one who was stuck between his wife and mother but loved them both dearly. He has been a part of many popular TV shows like Shararat, Sasural Genda Phool, etc. He also played important roles in films like Aashiqui 2, Hum Saath Saath Hain, etc.
Currently, Mahesh Thakur will be seen in the play Tota Maina Ki Kahani along side Himani Shivpuri, the actress of DDLJ fame. The play is directed by Tushar Joshi and is a comedy along with soothing music.So now since you got a little nostalgic, I am pretty sure you would go right back and watch the series again. Enjoy.
