Since we’re all under lockdown imposed to curb the Coronavirus pandemic, even the entertainment industry has come to a standstill, with no shoots happening in the showbiz. As a consequence, TV channels ran out of their episode bank of daily soaps. But on the plus side, popular archived shows are making a comeback, much to the delight of enthusiasts. The good old Doordarshan is having re-runs of iconic shows like Ramayan, Mahabharat, Circus, Shaktimaan, Dekh Bhai Dekh and more! These classics of the '90s brought back such fond memories. The amazing performances of the actors from those times is still liked by many. We still enjoy watching these on repeat and wonder is it even possible to ever get bored of them!
And since we’re talking about the era gone by, we take you through 6 actresses who totally ruled television in the ‘90s…
Supriya Pilgaonkar totally owned that time and who does not remember her as Radha Verma in Tu Tu Main Main. The show was about the arguments and love and hate relationship between daughter-in-law and mother-in-law. She literally made everyone get engrossed and feel her as Radha. Her amazing comic timing made the show a fun watch.
Renuka Shahane rose to fame for her spectacular hosting in Surabhi. It was an Indian cultural magazine show Siddharth Kak was her co-host. The show ran from 1990 to 2001. Surabhi made Renuka a household name and she had a huge fan following since the first episode. Her radiant smile made us all fall in love with her and even today we remember her hosting in the show.

Krutika Desai who was recently seen in the show Mere Angane Mein has been the queen of '90s. She is known for her shows like Buniyaad and Chandrakanta. Her performance in both shows made her the favourite and even today when we talk of Chandrakanta, we do remember her as twin sisters Sabhya and Ramya.
Mandira Bedi impressed us in Shanti wherein she played the titular role. The story was about two friends, Kamesh Mahadevan and Rajesh Singh living in the lavish Shanti Mansion. Behind the walls of Shanti Mansion lie dark secrets of the past lives of both the friends who are writers, directors and producers. Shanti is a journalist who comes to write the biographies of Kamesh and Raj. Mandira Bedi's performance was appreciated and she became one of the favourites.
Delhi Crime actress Shefali Shah had given some amazing performances back in the days as well. She is known for her role as Radha Pathak in Kabhie Kabhie of 1997. Watching her on-screen has always been a pleasure and she as Radha was simply amazing. She had received a lot of positive response from her fans for her performance.

Navneet Nishan aka Tara from the show Tara was the most loved. The series was known as the first ever Indian soap on contemporary urban women, and was the first Hindi language drama series that ran for about 5 years. This was one of the most loved shows which aired in 1993 and Navneet Nishan's acting skills made this a hit.
Nostalgic? Yes, indeed these shows were amazing and even today they are fresh in our mind.
