In so many TV shows even today, the daughters-in-law of the house are portrayed as uneducated, rural or poor. From Marathi to Hindi series, this trend is seen everywhere. Some cannot speak English or read properly. And these Hindi serials are watched in most parts of the country. Therefore, the image of the actresses working on these TV shows also becomes synonymous with their on-screen avatars.
But that is not the case in reality. From Dayaben to Gopi Bahu, who plays the role of being illiterate and uneducated in the serials, most such actresses are highly educated in real life.
In most Hindi serials, if the family belongs to North India or Rajasthan, the daughter-in-law is usually portrayed as simple, poor and uneducated. As the makers feel that this image is quickly accepted in society. Dayaben in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, Anupama, Radhika in Chhoti Bahu and Gopi Bahu in Saath Nibhaana Saathiya are all known faces who played the role of uneducated women. Through these serials, the same image has been etched in the minds of the audience over the years. But seeing their educational qualifications, in reality, might surprise you.
