Although this may not be Ekta's reasoning in creating the new leads like this, here are my 2 cents on the same.
Bulbul was a teenager pre-leap and really understood the impacts pradeep's, mona's, and anoushka's actions had on their lives. While she detested her mother's remarriage, because at that age she idolized her own father, like all girls do , may be illusionary it may be... she was pained and wanted to "save" whatever she thought the perfect family was, over and above the needs of her own mom (or dad for that matter). Then, as truth dawned reality struck, and she has grown to hate men - she feels, that all men are like her father - seeking some internal motive or benefit from women. She understands Anoushka as the other woman, but criticizes men.
Rano on the other hand was much more impressionable, and young. She didn't decipher much at that age, and perhaps grew up seeing her mother struggle. For her impressionable age - she picked up the other message. That if you are pretty, well dressed - etc., men can come running after you and provide you what you want and you can (literaly) get away with murder.
I do not condone any of this, but in general, it is not atypical to see such psychological patterns emerge from families that were dysfunctional. There are two extremes - two girls who were impacted differently by their father's debauchery and infidelity. One detests men and the other feels that having them around her little finger is the only way she can lead a comfortable, hassle free and easy life unlike her mother.
