Most Loved Fictional Characters From India

Presenting a list of the most loved fictional characters from Indian television, comics and brands.

1

Chacha Chaudhari (and Sabu)

Chacha Chaudhari (and Sabu)

Chacha Chaudhary and Sabu are the ultimate combination of brain and brawn. While “Chacha Caudhary ka dimaag computer se bhi tez chalta hai”, Sabu’s height and muscles can put a beefed up John Abraham to shame.

2

Shaktimaan

Shaktimaan

Shaktimaan is India’s answer to Western superheros. How can a middle aged man, devoid of any masks or capes (and muscles), donning a velvet winter suit with innumerable superpowers ever go wrong. Sorry Shaktimaan. :P

3

Mussadi Lal (and Bhatia)

Mussadi Lal (and Bhatia)

Every Indian can relate to Mussadi Lal in some way or the other. Pankaj Kapur’s portrayal of a distressed common man ill-treated by corrupt officials is a winner.

4

Naagraj

Naagraj

At 6 ft 2 in, this blue eyed superhero is the longest-running Indian action comic superhero. Every kid gets glued to his charismatic persona, curly hair and green suit. And snakes!

5

Super Commando Dhruv

Super Commando Dhruv

Born to a couple who worked in Jupiter Circus, Super Commando Dhruv is India’s Batman because he doesn’t possess any superpower. But his acrobatic skills, martial arts training and strong willpower make him far superior than Spiderman.

6

Doga

Doga

Who says we don’t have an antihero in the Indian comic industry? With his extraordinary physical strength and ability to dodge bullets, he kicks ass of villains such as Kaal Paheliya, Bihari Bhai etc. He can communicate with dogs too. Awesome.

7

Kroor Singh

Kroor Singh

Yakoooo! If you’ve never watched Chandrakanta and don’t know who Kroor Singh is, our condolences are with you. Akhilendra Mishra immortalized the character of Kroor Singh with his evil (or funny) histrionics. And does anyone remember his two sidekicks?

8

Mowgli(Jungle book)

Mowgli(Jungle book)

“Jungle jungle baat chali hai, pata chala hai…arey chaddi pehn ke phool khila hai, phool khila hai”. ‘Nuff said.

9

ACP Pradyuman

ACP Pradyuman

No one solves crime like ACP Pradyuman. Period. He’s the boss to Senior Inspector Abhijeet and Daya, and is the central character in C.I.D, the longest running TV series (16 years as of 2013) in Indian television history. The character has attained a cult status like no other.

10

Byomkesh Bakshi

Byomkesh Bakshi

India’s answer to Sherlock Holmes and Poirot, Byomkesh Bakshi solved mysteries with his intellect, intuition and sometimes with the help of Ajit.

11

Sam D’silva (and Gopi)

Sam D’silva (and Gopi)

Who knows that Sam D’silva actually has 7 bullets in his specially designed revolver? While C.I.D. took 16 years to reach its cult status, Tehkikaat left its mark in only 13 episodes.

12

Capt. Vyom

Capt. Vyom

Thanks to Capt. Vyom, we now know what the world (and solar system) will look like in the year 2220 A.D.

13

Mungerilal

Mungerilal

Mungerilal
