Welcome to the eigth installment of Degrassi character of the day ( DCOTD) where a different character will be the main focus daily. When a character is focused on, it is most appreciated that everyone who likes and even dislikes this character should engage in discussion. Remember that there could but not always be guaranteed an assortment of trivia, games, quotes, polls, scenarios, and or other things in relation to the Degrassi character as apart of this segment. We love these characters and can’t wait to see them grow and progress over the upcoming years. As we are moving through the list of Degrassi characters I am noticing at how more and more popular they are getting. Our next character of interest is Alli Bhandari who is portrayed by Melinda Shankar.
Alli Bhandari came to the show in Season 8 as apart of the original notorious niners crew. Alli was that girl balancing two different lifestyles to not only please herself but also her parents. She would leave school in the most rediculous outfit to cover up her body and then as soon as she would get to school, the clothes came off into something more revealing. It is a tough thing to balance her hindu culture and upbringing along with the life she wants to have. Remember those innocent Alli and Clare moments? You know the ones that included a vibrator and even Darcy’s clothes? Ok this does not sound right but anyways Clare and Alli started out as friends first until Jenna came along. This has currently allowed Alli, Clare, and Jenna to be somewhat friends. In Season 8, Alli got into a bit of trouble has she created a FaceRange Page titled “I Hate Holly J” which led her to get in trouble with the law. She has been through some ups and downs including a recent push for popularity. Alli has dated the former Lakehurst bad boy Johnny DiMarco and more recently Drew Torres. The jury is still out on whether or not Alli and Drew will ever be together again.
