The rest of the family includes a head clerk, Ramesh Bhat as a Sanskrit lecturer, grandchildren Anu Prabhakar and Deepa Bhaskar whose parents have passed away.
Kailashanath's sons are scared of crossing him because he controls the whole property and also has a big box with valuables which he guards constantly never leaving his room.
