Despite being responsible parents, they don’t shy away from occasional rants and irrational demands.Thekids are the ladle of the family. They have brought in the online shopping culture into their household and made life easier for their parents. The parents and kids are inter-dependent on each other in terms of household work and technology. Daadi is particularly fond of her grandchildren and vice versa. Don’t judge a daadi by her age.

Meet the members of The Aam Aadmi Family…
Daadi (played by the much loved Kamlesh Gill 0f Vicky Donor and Bang Bangfame) – The over dramatic, grumbling daadi uses her death as a tool to get her way. A TV addict, she is impulsive, but understands the dynamics of the family, a foodie and almost obsessive about her medical care, she is commanding but adores her grandchildren.
S.K.Sharma (played by the popular Indian actor, Brijendra Kala from Paan Singh Tomar and PK) is a middle-class man with simple tastes. A government servant, he is comfortable with his job and home. He is the bread winner of the family so is keen to give them a comfortable lifestyle especially to his kids. He is proud of what he has achieved in life and likes to be reminded about it at every given opportunity. A god-fearing man, he is concerned about his reputation, is conventional in his approach, but gives in to persuasion and believes in spending money judiciously.
Madhu Sharma (played by well known Indian theatre, film and television actress Lubna Salim from Oh My God) is a housewife and a mother of two. She is sarcastic and is hard to please. She whines and complains all day long. Despite being confronted with a lot of family problems, she’s the one who keeps it together.
Bobby (played by Indian film actor Chandan Anand of Oye Lucky, Lucky Oye) The laadla of the family, but he, at the same time, bears the brunt of all the taunts. Money-minded, manipulative, ungrateful but still gets through with relentless support from mummy and daadi. An average student, image-conscious and materialistic. Respects his parents, reluctantly obedient, attempts to be the problem solver.
Sonu (played by beautiful actress Gunjan Malhotra of Tevar and Airlift fame) The educated, progressive, change agent of the family. Politically correct, is inexpressive, career-oriented, matured, sensible, bickers with brother, understanding with father, disagrees with respect and logic.
Apoorv Singh,Director,Timeliners – The Aam Aadmi Family says, “We have grown up watching and loving some great family shows on the Indian Television like Dekh Bhai Dekh, Sarabhai vs Sarabhai etc. While a lot of good content is being made for the online audiences nowadays, so far no one has created a family focused web series. We thought it would be really interesting to explore this space. Hope that the audiences like our work. Fingers crossed!”
