I am talking about a TV serial 'Kalat Nakalat' on Zee Marathi. The serial is a typical story of a typical 'middle-class' girl with typical dreams-in-her-eyes (and one.. two.. three boyfriends hovering around her.)
Just today, her father turns down the proposal by one of these guys and says, (translated line) "I'll burn my daughter alive but not let her marry you."
The father may be the male chauvinist pig (a rather cliche term) but he is certainly not expected to mouth dialogues like these.
The dialogue writer certainly should have been more responsible. Hearing this dialogue one day before the women's day was an irony in itself.
