As much as the guests despise Dadi's 'shagun ki pappi', no one has managed to break the tradition yet.

If there's one show that has brought all of Bollywood to television, it is Comedy Nights with Kapil. The highly popular comedy show is not just popular because of its entertaining host Kapil Sharma, but also because of his telly family.The adorable Palak, poker-faced Gutthi, annoyed wife Manju, eligible bachelorette Bua, and forever young Dadi are characters without whom the show is incomplete. The oldest member of this family, Dadi (played by actor Ali Asgar), is young at heart, an alcoholic, and never fails to flirt with any male guest on the show. Though the description of her character sounds disgusting, she is the most adorable of the lot on the show.Dadi's famous 'shagun ki pappi' is supposed to bring immense good luck to the guests. However, if you're a fan of the show you know how much the guests despise her lipstick marks on their faces and how hard they have struggled to escape being kissed.
