Probably not what everyone cares about now. But it's been bugging me for a while. And within the last month, the character has gotten much worse--with both the creatives and the actor making the character an offensive exaggeration of gay people.  And the actor is overacting very badly.  

People always complain about the AA track and that NM is a bad actress.  But Manisha is what I can't stand in that track now.  NM is not great or good, but aside from the fact that she's gotten a little better, Manisha's overacting is worse that NM/Annie's non-acting.

I'm not even talking about the character being into each and every male that walks.  I'm talking about how bad the attempt to portray a flamboyant gay male is.  Yes, there are flamboyant gay males, but this one is just embarrassing to watch because the portrayal is just horrible.

But people just find it amusing and hilarious--because it's all well and good to make gay and homophobic jokes.

i'm sorry you feel this way... i have to admit that i enjoy the character as a comic relief...but you raise a valid point...there is a fine line between comedy and offending...i find the character unique and i hope they can improve upon it so that others are not offended...Smile

There were times when the character was a good comic relief.  But I don't find that true anymore.  Even compared with biggest, most flamboyant and loud queen, Manisha is still a badly overacted character these days.  It's embarrassing to watch.

unfortunately gay characters in hindi films and tv shows have always been used as comic relief... i know only a couple of hindi movies where gay characters are treated with dignity and tv shows mostly havn't even come that far... the actor really cannot be blamed here coz the character is written that way and the actor is probably told to behave in a certain manner... the only relief if any is that the character's homosexuality is accepted quite openly by all the other characters in the show... homosexuality atleast is not treated as a taboo in the show...
