Indian daily soaps are a typical drama blast in the true sense. Pick any serial; all will revolve around the story of a sophisticated, loving and good-hearted Bahu, her hardworking and loyal husband, their combined happy family and evil, cruel, insensitive and overall demon vamp.
But let me tell you a secret, most of these shows were famous just because of the vamps. Therefore, no matter how cruel they were or how much women hated them, they are the most missed ones. Let's have a look at the most famous vamps on Indian television.
Ammaji was an ignorant, manipulative woman who ruled a village, Veerpur, with an iron fist. She was pure evil as she commanded that all newly born girls must be killed by drowning them in milk.
The lady who was majorly known for her over-sized bindi, Jigyasa Walia aka Ashwini Kalsekar was a sinister sister. She is among the most hatred vamps of Indian television.
Kalyani Devi, aka Surekha Sikri from the show Balika Vadhu was an old woman stuck in traditions. It is pretty much sure that you can find a woman like her in every family. Although, her character was completely changed over the time, but initially she was not considered less than a c
The show was Kasautii Zindagii Kay was all about the love story of Anurag and Prerna. But Komolika was far more famous than the couple. She was the only one who made sure Anurag and Prerna never unite.
How can anyone forget the Komolika... Komolika... Likaaaa...?
When it comes to playing a negative role, it is difficult to compete with Ashwini Kalsekar. Her part of Maham Anga in the show Jodha Akbar fetched her critical acclaims, and she also won various Best Actress Awards in Negative Role.
Mandira is the most famous vamps on Indian television. She defined the character of evil ladies in daily soaps. She was the worst of the worst and was called the husband snatcher. If the show is still in nerves of Indian audience, Mandira is a crucial reason behind it.
If we talk about playing antagonistic roles in TV serials, Jaya Bhattacharya is a famous name in this category.
In the show Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Payal was about to get married to Mihir. But Mihir denied to marry her as he gets to know the cruel intentions of Payal. Well, apparently, being a good vamp, how would she let Mihir and his wife Tulsi live a happy life?
Ramola Sikand aka Sudha Chandran was a character who gave drugs to a lady and tricked her husband into marrying her.
Next just to take revenge, she killed Kunal (another character) and brought his lookalike to make sure things go her way. *I MEAN WOAH*
Another real evil vamp is Tanveer aka Amrapali Gupta. She was so evil that she never planned on hurting someone, it was merely about killing them. *LOL!*
A poor little rich girl who never got tired of plotting, this is what Tapasya was known for, and it was Rashami Desai who played the role.
All these characters were so realistic that they left their impact on the audience. Kudos to the person who created such scheming avatars.
That's all, readers. I hope you liked the story.
