Dadi was the fifth reason why we watched Manahil Aur Khalil

 Dadi- the sweetest and kindest grandmother ever

 Habiba Shafik dadi

This sweet and kind granny stole the show from the main protagonists of Manahil aur Khalil/Mirna wa Khalil/Menekse ile Halil. She is the one who encourages Manahil to run away from her husband Mustafa especially after she discovers Manahil/Mirna/Menekse attempting to commit suicide after a brutal wedding night. Even though her son Hasan regularly beats up his wife Sohaila, Dadi is always at hand to shower kind words to her daughter in law and never favours her son unnecessarily. Like the time when she gets hold of Manahil’s virginity test and shoves the paper to her son. She is in rage that he had the audacity to imply his daughter is indulging in extra-marital behaviour. Dadi/granny is also super supportive of her other grandkids. Like when Manahil’s brother Yusuf decides to give refuge to an escort Laila and then decides to marry her, despite Suhaila’s serious reservations, Dadi supports Yusuf and counsels her daughter-in-law. Give me such a grandmother any day.
