From Mahesh Luthra to Pia, here are all the characters that suffered from memory loss and how it affected their show’s narrative.

Amnesia or memory loss is such a common way for TV show makers to further the plot or even thicken it. We have been seeing amnesia or selective memory loss as a way for villains to evade their crimes, supporting cast to forget the wrongdoings of villains and heroes and heroines to extend the tragedy in love stories. Memory loss has been one of the most dramatic yet effective tools to be used in Zee TV shows and here are some characters and their memorable amnesia sequences that really helped the plot of the show!

Mahesh Luthra in Kundali Bhagya

Mahesh Luthra (Navin Saini) is one of the most recent characters to succumb to this tool! He had discovered Sherlyn (Ruhi Chaturvedi) and Prithvi’s (Sanjay Gagnani) secret. He had also discovered Pawan’s secret and the reason behind his hatred for Malhotras. However, in an attempt to stop him from ruining their plans, Mahesh was pushed down the stairs by Sherlyn and was also injected with harmful medicines that kept him in a coma for so many months. While he regains his consciousness, he suffers from a stroke and faints because of the pressure on his mind. The doctor then tells the Luthras that Mahesh will not be able to retain his memory for long and hence, there are chances that Prithvi and Sherlyn’s secret will never get exposed on the show.
