Dekh Bhai Dekh was an Hindi sitcom which premiered on Doordarshan's metro channel, (DD2) on 6 May 1993. It was created, developed, edited, directed by Anand Mahendroo and produced by Jaya Bachchan under the banner of Saraswati Audio Visuals Pvt Ltd (now merged with Amitabh Bachchan Corporation). It starred Shekhar Suman, Navin Nischol, Farida Jalal, Bhavana Balsavar, Deven Bhojani, Sushma Seth, Vishal Singh and Nattasha Singh in lead roles.


The story revolves around three generations of the Diwan family, who live as an extended family in an ancestral bungalow in the suburbs of Mumbai. The serial takes the family through sibling rivalry, relationship troubles, business problems, irksome parents and in-laws.


At the top of the family is the headstrong matriarch Sarla Diwan (the legendary theatre actress Sushma Seth), who maintains a culture of discipline in the house and is doted upon by her husband (NK Shivpuri), fondly called Daddyji, who misses her in her absence and plays endless pranks with his grandchildren.
