From Komolika in Kasautii Zindagii Kay to Dadi Sa in Balika Vadhu, 7 vamps who took badassery to another level on Hindi TV

Komolika in Kasautii Zindagii Kay, Pallavi in Kahani Ghar Ghar Kii and more, these 7 Hindi TV vamps were not just badass but were also super stylish

Rupal Patel, Surekha Sikri, Ashwini Kalsekar, Sudha Chandran and Urvashi Dholakia, these are some of the popular female names of the Hindi television industry, who introduced us to the word ‘vamp’. Be it Urvashi Dholakia’s character as Komolika in Kasautii Zindagii Kay or Ashwini Kalsekar’s negative role as Jigyasa Walia in Kasamh Se these vamps became a household name by playing such characters.  The vamps of television are portrayed in such a way that sometimes it outshines the main female protagonist. And why not? They are super stylish and also carry a sense of freedom and power.

Apart from their distinct characteristics, their makeup, hairdo, and costumes also created a huge impact. Hindi TV is dominated by women. If you remember Urvashi Dholakia’s role as Komolika and her look, everything from her makeup, embellished dark coloured sarees to the trademark curly hair, that she kept twirling, grabbed the attention.

Some other dreadful vamps of small screens also include Shweta Kawatra as Pallavi in Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii and Meghna Malik in Ammaji of Na Aana Is Des Laado.
