Shubhangi Atre Poorey is a face that barely needs an introduction. The widely acknowledged and accepted television actress caught the nation’s right nerve with her Sahi Pakde Hai dialogue. Better known as Angoori Bhabhi of Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hain, Shubhangi and her antics are one of the mainstays of the sitcom. The show is easily one of the best things that ever happened to the television scene in India.
