Kahan hai wo log : In search of serial Buniyaad actors!

News is that Buniyaad serial will be retelecasted after gap of 27 years. It was super duper hit serial and was much enjoyable than Hum Log. Two serials can not be compared as both had different background, but Hum Log was giving disappointment as Baseshar Ram was alcoholic, and nothing for good, Bhagwanti was always suffering. Badki was always serious.

While in Buniyaad, Haweli Ram and Lajoji affair was pleasant to watch for. Mazhar Khan and Kanwaljit Singh also played enjoyable role. So was Veeravali.

Vinod Nagpal, Rajesh Puri, Abhinav Chaturvedi, Kamiya Malhotra acted in both milestone serials. Both serials were written by Manohar Shyam Joshi. He also wrote Kakaji Kahin, a political satire.
