Indian daily soaps have a reputation for defying all logic and exaggerating things to their absolute possible limits to a point that some scenes appear cringy. From Sasural Simar Ka to Saath Nibhana Saathiya, cringe-worthy moments from the soaps have often gone viral on social media.
Now yet another video is going viral on social media that left netizens in splits. In the viral video, Devoleena Bhattacharjee who plays the role of Gopi Bahu can be seen in a hospital covered in bandages. It seems she was in a coma but her husband (played by Mohammad Nazim) started yelling at the top of his lungs in a bid to bring her back to consciousness.
That’s not it. Her husband is also heard asking her for his green tea, clothes, and meals. A Twitter user shared the hilarious scene from the popular serial Saath Nibhana Saathiya with a caption, “???. He cannot be real.” Take a look at the video below:

Guess what the yelling worked and Gopi Bahu predictably wakes up from a coma and obliges his demands.

The above scene from Saath Nibaana Saathiya was supposed to be perceived as all cute and adorable with Gopi Bahu waking up but some netizens were upset with normalizing toxic masculinity and patriarchy.
The ideal man. This is what peak masculinity looks like ❤ https://t.co/kjQ2CAVh9x

Literally how men in the family react when the women get sick. Its not care, its irritation and annoyance that the unpaid worker has to take a sick leave. That's why women will take it upon themselves to work through the illness instead of resting https://t.co/Bzgd3ZgZOQ

This is very real in many desi families.
Women are forced to cook/clean/wash for entire families even when they're sick, pregnant/postpartum or dying. https://t.co/Ai3yXoaj9t

made a horrible decision of looking into the levels of misogyny, complete entitlement and lack of self realisation to write such a scene https://t.co/uXIT3tmxdU

no but in some households, people do expect women to serve them even when they're sick https://t.co/cHDJ7j1X4S
