DMG aka Dill Mill Gayye was among the most addictive shows for 90s kids. You know, right? The Hindi soap medical drama was a sequel to the Star Plus series Sanjivani - A Medical Boon.
It was based on the lives of surgical interns and resident doctors of Sanjivani. The major focus of the story was the love story between Dr Armaan Mallik and Dr Riddhima Gupta.
