    • Those who are not aware will be shocked to know that, even though ‘Parineeta’ was Vidya Balan’s mainstream Bollywood debut film, but, that wasn’t her debut in showbiz industry.

The serial also starred Ashok Saraf, Shoma Anand, Bhairavi Raichuria, Vandana Pathak. The serial was aired from the year 1995 till 2006 and was one of the most widely watches serials of those times.
