Although people found this very uncomfortable, but Ronit's convincing character made the whole idea looked refined!
KD Pathak: Adaalat
In the television industry, not many male actors have been able to pull off an entire show completely on their shoulders. While Adaalat is the most successful Indian court drama, it is actually Ronit's attitude, personality, and style in the series that resonated his real-life persona. The show not only revolves around fighting legal battles and solving crimes but there's enough space for room too.
Mr. Bajaj: Kasautii Zindagii Kay
Initially, Ronit was only supposed to last in this series for a cameo of 10 days however, after his character was loved by the audience producer Ekta Kapoor decided to let him stay; and Kasautii Zindagii Kay came as a turning point in Ronit's career. Starting off as the villain between Anurag and Prerna's love, later he turned into a man with a heart of gold; and people adored him for that!

The series revolved around a couple who got divorced over a misunderstanding but years later, their grownup children bring them back together. A mature love story, where the audience loved Ronit as well as his chemistry with Pallavi Kulkarni.
Mihir Virani: Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi
If you don't know who are Mihir and Tulsi, then do you even watch television? Are you even an Indian? Although it was Amar Upadhaya, who made the character of Mihir popular but it was Ronit, who brought life to the character with his charm. After Amar left the show mid-way to fulfill his Bollywood dreams, late Inder Kumar stepped into Mihir's shoes but failed miserably. However, the show was on air and the makers needed someone to make things right and that is when, Ronit became a part of the Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi family! His chemistry with Smriti Irani aka Tulsi was loved and the show became a landmark in Ronit's career.
Happy Birthday, Ronit! Do a movie soon, please!
