They are always decked in jewellery, jhataak sarees and the pallu on their head, but don’t mistake that to be their ideal avatars

When Drashti Dhami is not playing her character in Madhubala Ek Ishq Ek Junoon, all she likes is short and sexy. Sanaya Irani may look beautiful in the lehenga choli for Rangrasiya, but it’s her short dresses that make you sit up and notice. Hina Khan may be the adarsh bahu on Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, but when the cameras are off her, her dressing gets glamorous and adventurous.

Pooja Gaur (In Mann Kee Awaaz Pratigya as Pratigya): She played the simple bahu next door donning red sarees and minimal jewellery, but it’s the short shorts that caught our eyes during the launch of Fear Factor Khatron Ke Khiladi 5. It’s hot and definitely the need of the hour, don’t you agree?

Drashti Dhami (In Madhubala Ek Ishq Ek Junoon as Madhubala): She plays Madhubala a bespectacled and dorky looking girl who dreams to be in the glamour world. Her avatar on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6 gave the audience a glimpse in to the real Drashti – the sexy and hot one.

Sangeeta Ghosh (In Kehta Hai Dil Jee Le Zara as Saanchi): A popular actor of her time, Sangeeta recently entered the telly world again. However, whenever you look for her on the internet, her bikini clad images appear in the search result. With a figure to die for, Sangeeta sure knows how to flaunt it. Don’t you agree?

Hina Khan (In Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai as Akshara): Hina Khan is every mother-in-law’s dream. The epitome of an ideal bahu, but our darling heroine is no less glamourous when she has to be. Although, we’ve not seen her in the modern avatar off late, she is quite sizzling and can carry the drop dead gorgeous look to the T.

Krystle D’Souza (In Ekk Nayi Pehchaan as Sakshi): At the age of 16-18 Krystle portrayed the typical bahu on Star Plus. People identified with her avatar and complimented her on the same. But in real life, the girl prefers dressing her age – be it short tops, skirts or backless dresses. We totally like it!

Sanaya Irani (In Rangrasiya as Paro): The actor believes in comfort dressing. The show may demand the actor to be in lehenga choli 24/7, but when the cameras are off, Sanaya is spotted in a casual avatar in her favourite pair of jeans, top and dresses. And we must agree she looks rather cute in them, no?
