ISHQBAAZI SE HOSANNA
SHIVAAY SINGH OBEROI: The Eldest son, and only son of Shakti Singh Oberoi and Pinky Singh Oberoi. The apple of eye of Pinky, Shivaay is very serious, quick – witted and business minded. His life had space for only two things, His business and his family. Being Eldest of second generation Oberoi’s he is very protective of his remaining cousins and treats them as his trueborn siblings. He is very rigid towards his belief, quick to anger which sometimes some people may misunderstand as arrogance. His believes that people from good lineages may never do anything immoral or wrong. Of course being a businessman his belief of ‘immoral’ varies time to time.
OMKARA SINGH OBEROI: Second son of family but the Eldest son of Tej Singh Oberoi and Jhanvi Singh Oberoi. A Deep thinker and most relatable to his mother and clashing with his father due to his infidelity to his mother, Om as he prefers being called is very serene. There was a phase in his life when he couldn’t bear his unbearable father and started taking drugs, at that time he must have been only 15. He was sent to a rehab centre where he was treated. There he had learnt his love for art and from there he went on to study arts and became one of the most successful artists of the decade, as titled by Art News Magazine. This fact created a greater rift between father – son. He believes in honesty and honor and strives to do good for people. Just for this fact he is dubbed ‘Philosopher’ of the family.
RUDRA SINGH OBEROI: Youngest son of Oberoi’s and second son of Tej and Jhanvi. Rudra is almost never taken seriously, with his both brother protecting him with world, he is rather naïve and innocent. Only things that interest him are girls and gym. He is not very serious things oriented and spends most of his time chilling and partying with his friends. He has somewhat of natural talent and charm regarding girls. Life is a party for Rudra Singh Oberoi.
PRIYANKA SINGH OBEROI: Only daughter of the family and Tej and Jhanvi, people would think she would rather be snobbish brat but Prinku (as her family calls her) is nothing like that, in fact the girl is only interest in her photography and chemistry classes. She is a sweet, simple girl who doesn’t think much of life. That doesn’t mean she is naïve like her brothers, she understands how world works, in fact when she was young she had witnessed her Phufa (Uncle) Abhijeet commit a murder, all the blood and his leery eyes had haunted her since them and had been cause of her many nightmares and panic attacks.

She knows that her business that she had started with her husband has been tainted in these past days. And her family is in pathetic condition with Tej – Jhanvi on the verge of divorce, and Pinky’s wish to make Shivaay Head of the business and Shakti’s god knows what attitude, she could only hope that her children would keep the family glued in one tight bond.
TEJ SINGH OBEROI: Arrogant is the one word anyone uses to describe Tej Singh Oberoi. He is very proud of what he had created along with his father, a legacy that should be preserved but instead he is saddled with a useless son who would rather play with mud than be interested in his work and Rudra who has only time for party and girls. Now Tej can only hope to preserve his hard work by having rich marriage alliance through Prinku. But Tej had not always been like this, once he had loved Jhanvi and his family so much that he had dedicated his life to them but there has been a rift growing between him and Jhanvi for years especially after Jhanvi’s Miscarriage, it seemed that only Svetlana had been thinking for him at that time.
JHANVI SINGH OBEROI: Rightful wife of Tej Singh Oberoi in all but name, Jhanvi was once promised to her childhood friend Vikram Rana but married Tej instead for love.
