Television and film actress Sucheta Khanna is best known for her role Indumati, a typical Indian homemaker in the serial Lapataganj. Her mispronunciations and hilarious style in her show can give Angoori bhabhi's character a unique twist.

Rashami Desai is quite good at handling fiction, dance and comedy shows. She has worked in a couple of seasons of Comedy Circus and is currently seen on Comedy Nights Live.
