No!not the horny widow with DD cups in your hood.Shanti was a tele-series aired on DD In the nineties-the first ever daily soap of Indian television,yes the one your mom watched before having a good afternoon nap while you did your homework.
It depicted the boring life of an Indian Abla Nari who is a journalist dealing with retired pervs and the protagonist to play the role was none other than Mandira Bedi whose career took a nose dive after your dad decided to get a cable connection when he found out the cause behind your moms chronic depression was Shanti.
Meanwhile Mandira Bedi devised a way to uplift her career by uplifting her identical twins and got an opportunity to talk gibberish with Charu Sharma.

Usage
