Tulsidas Parekh: The beloved 'babuji', 65 years of age, head of the madhouse or simply 'kur kur Kumar' is best described as a man of principles. He is short-tempered, irritable and dotes on his unnaturally stupid son, Praful. He is also superstitious, believes in swamis and cannot stand the sight of Raju and Mellisa. He believes that the smartest people in his family are Jackie and Chakki - the two children. In spite of his idiosyncrasies, he seems sane compared to the rest of the family.
Hansa Parekh: If you are a cynic, who didn't believe in 'made for each other' - here's your chance to see the REAL 'made for each other ' couple. She is the perfect match for Praful. If Praful is 'stupid', she is definitely 'stupider'. She is 40 years old but behaves like a 12 year old. And fortunately, she has the brains to match. Hansa is the perfect dimwit who is very eager to learn English, but she possesses the art of dodging any kind of household work with such perfect precision that at that point of time she emerges as the craftiest woman nature ever created. She hates cooking, eating and generally everything that requires effort. She is only interested in her gajra, her sarees and not to forget, her Prafulů.
Prafull Parekh: Voted the most stupid, He is 43 years old and gets a salary from his employers for not turning up in office. Severely in love with his wife, Hansa, they are considered the most loved couple on TV today. His ignorance about the most mundane of matters coupled with his unique illogical sense adds dollops of fun to any situation. The words 'I' 'ME' 'MY' are integral part of his limited vocabulary but he is the only person who can answer the even stupider queries of Hansa's. Lets just say that his heart is way bigger than his brains...
Jayshree: Loves to live life king size, Jayshree is the smarter bahu of the family. She is not only a scheming gossip monger, she is also a chalta firtaa 'Ask Me' counter. Ask her about the neighbour's mother-in-law's sister's hernia operation and she'll tell you how long it took and which nurse did the patient's husband make a pass at. She is an expert cook and has a firebrand sense of humour. She never lets an opportunity pass by and makes the best of the worst situation.
Raju Tulsidas Parekh: He is about 26 years old, has a roving eye, modern, aspiration and has married Mellisa much against the family wishes. Babuji gets one more reason to dislike him. As a normal man in this abnormal household, he usually doesn't have any say - babuji always shouts him down and now he has accepted his lot. Though way smarter and much more educated than the rest, he still prefers to be in the mad house.
Mellisa Raju Parekh: Mellisa is a 24-year-old Catholic girl married to Raju. She will never hear the end of babuji's lamentations and Jayshree's schemes against her but now, like Raju, she also has accepted her lot. She is strong, and when required can put everybody in their places.
Chakki Praful Parekh: She is the 10-year-old daughter of Hansa and Praful Parekh. Very smart and intelligent, she also wishes to become a beauty queen when she grows up. She keeps thanking her parents for giving her their Good looks and not their Brains.
Jackie Bharat Parekh: Highly energetic, a bright and academically inclined child. He loves to mimic others but at the same time is very sensitive. He is one of the smartest in the family. He has a soft corner for his mom, Jayshree.
Himanshu Sheth: Himanshu is Hansa's 28-year-old brother who stays with her. Babuji calls him 'moochon wale Hansa' - which explains his basic IQ level - they still have to figure out who is more stupid, Hansa or her brother. He is obsessed with cooking and doesn't allow his wife to enter the kitchen. He has a very well established catering business in Jamnagar. But has come to Mumbai to be in the film industry. He thinks making films is as easy as preparing a good dish. For him whatever Hansa decides is final.
Parminder: She is 24 years old, married to Himanshu, a typical Punjabi girl - very shy and fears her brother, Parminder. She never has an opinion of her own and depends on her brother and husband for everything.
