Quite a neat, good topic. Well, I prefer fiction more than facts and reality, probably because I think imagination is more powerful than daily events (I am a born day-dreamer). But, most of the characters in fiction come from reality.
DC may look real to you but then he still wears the cloak of a fictitious character and a real character can only go till a particular distance but in fiction, it's a different story.
Meenakshi is the fictional damsel in distress, shedding tears all the time but then, how many we know come from that strata of the society. We usually evaluate people/characters based on our interactions and experience, and often we interact with our kinds and don't know the people standing on the other side of the fence.
Angad: I think, there are brothers of such kind in reality too. Yes, such characters are in dozen of shows but then as I said, fiction often takes its characters from reality.
Akshat: He is real cum fictitious just like DC. Impulsive: Real. Charming: Real cum Fiction. Flirt: Real. Confused: Real. Temperamental: Real cum Fiction. I forgot to add Karishma
: She is not the typical vamp. There are stories of how parents want to fulfill their dreams through their kids, and they do exploit them. Recently heard a story about an upcoming South-Indian actress and how her mother pimps her around for roles. Mean, catty, or cruel, I haven't seen anyone make faces like that and some of the taunts of hers are bookish. So, she is real cum fictitious.
P.S: I enjoy stories and nothing can give me more high than a good story. A great number of critics love a movie or stories because it's very close to reality and one can relate to them. And, I am kind of lost because I don't want to read reality in fiction -- it has to be different from what I see around me, but lately I have concluded that, it's difficult to create a mirror image of reality because for that one needs great observation skills and if the writer or the director is able to create that, hats off to them and they deserve the highest praise.
But, I prefer complete fictional account more than the reality. I like to live in a bubble.
