Aaba from Shriyut Gangadhar Tipre was one such character that stayed on with us years after the show went off-air. In this light-hearted family drama, Dilip played the role of jolly and kind-hearted Aaba Tipre who kept the family intact. Aaba’s on-point advice to his family was something that every middle-class Maharashtrian could relate to. Agreed?
