Several women have displayed immense courage, determination and tactfulness in their journey of life. While some have fought their battles alone, some have been fortunate enough to have the support of caring and encouraging men in their lives. Similarly, our favourite willful leading ladies of Zee Bangla television shows have had the opportunity to fight several social evils and battles with the help of progressive and nurturing men who have been like a backbone to them at all times.

Watch what will happen next on Krishnakoli here:

Karna Sen

Ki Kore Bolbo Tomay‘s Karna Sen, who is played by Krushal Ahuja, is one of the most supportive men of all time. Whether it is taking a needful stand for Radhika against a conservative Thammi or being supportive of Rini, his cousin sister, about her right to build a career before worrying about marriage, Karna has repetitively proven to be an exceptionally unorthodox support system for all of the women present in his life.

Aparajita Apu‘s Dipu, played by Rohaan Bhattacharjee, has turned out to be one of the best friends one can ever find by their side at the time of need. Not only did he hide Apu in his room when she ran away for her job examination and sought shelter at his place, but he also convinced her to give her dreams another shot when she had almost given up on them completely. Despite being born in an extremely patriarchal family, Dipu holds unbiased values and morals that set him apart from his other family members.

Nikhil Choudhury

Essayed by Neel Bhattacharya, Nikhil Choudhury of Krishnakoli has a very uplifting approach for the women in his life. Even before discovering that Krishna herself was his own daughter, Nikhil did everything in his power to help her pursue her goals. From bringing Krishna to the city of Kolkata to giving her shelter in his house, Nikhil truly gave his all for her to be able to pursue a musical career despite her being a stranger to him and hailing from a rural background.

Speaking of progressive and uplifting men, we simply could not miss out on Karunamoyee Rani Rashmoni‘s Mathurbabu. From being a powerful pillar of support for Rani Maa to giving his daughter the best values possible and from residing at his mother-in-law’s residency to supporting several crucial movements like widow remarriage, Mathurbabu has defied the orthodox societal beliefs for years.

Jamuna Dhaki‘s Sangeet Ray, portrayed by actor Rubel Das, is an exceptionally motivating man in Jamuna’s life. Since day one, he has backed her up at all times and stood by her side at the roughest of times, even when his own family was completely against her. From siding by her in household matters to helping her out for her dhak practice, Sangeet has done it all.
