What is the first thing that comes to your mind whenever there’s a mention of actress Kareena Kapoor Khan’s character Pia in 3 Idiots? The first visual has to be her riding a scooter, wearing the red helmet. And the second thing is that she was a doctor by profession, hence due to which her first scooter ride with Rancho (Aamir Khan) takes place while saving Raju’s (Sharman Joshi) ailing father in the film.

Now, if we go back to the beginning of And TV’s popular show Meri Hanikarak Biwi, it was in the first few episodes itself, when we got a strong recall of Kareena’s character Pia from the Rajkumar Hirani directorial. No points for guessing, it was none other than our very own Dr Ira Pandey (Jiyaa Shankar) who gave us this strong recall that to on the small screen.

Have a look at the episode:

These things instantly reminded us of Kareena’s character from 3 Idiots. Coincidentally, Jiyaa’s character in the show is also shown to be as a doctor like that of Pia in 3 Idiots.

For your reference here are the pictures of Kareena as Dr Pia and Jiyaa as Dr Ira all set to take a ride on their scooty, wearing their helmets:
