How to make a Hindi Tv Serial / Series

If you or your relatives have watched even 5 episodes of a Hindi tv series, you can see how erratic the story lines are.

I am sure those who watch Hindi TV series can relate to this.

So here is what Babli from NRIinOz thinks- ANYONE can make a hindi tv series by choosing any of the following in any order and repeat anytime:

-Punar Janam (Re-birth)

-Memory Loss

-Plastic surgery (especially helpful when they want to kick out an actor)

-Marry the lead

-Divorce the lead

-Still love the one you divorced, yet marry someone else, remarry the lead

-The mother in law hates you and makes your life miserable so you divorce the lead again
