Your favorite not-so-normal family is back!
After all, what’s traditional about being a 17-year-old Vine star (Nik), a 14-year-old breaking into pageants (Sarina), or a 6-year-old transgender princess (Devina)? But that’s who makes up the Keswani family – plus momager Vaishali and hospital executive dad Anil.
The Keswanis – featured in this week’s issue of PEOPLE – and their non-traditional lives are the focus of a new web series on PEOPLE.com, The Keswanis: A Most Modern Family.
Starring in the second episode is the Keswani’s middle child, Sarina, who’s making a name for herself and shrugging off her childhood insecurities in the world of teen beauty pageants.
“The pageant has really taught Sarina a whole new level of confidence,” says her father, Anil, in this week’s episode. “She’s really learning how to be Sarina. That’s hard when you’re a middle child.”
Her mom, Vaishali, won her share of pageant crowns in her younger years, but it was a beauty contest scout who ultimately recruited Sarina and inspired her to compete.
And while Sarina may be strutting the pageant stage in her mother s footsteps, she’s still daddy’s little girl.
“At an early age, Sarina and I bonded,” Anil says in this week’s episode. “I was there for her, when she probably wanted her mom.”
“My dad and I seem to get each other more,” Sarina agrees.
And it’s a good thing they’re so close: When momager Vaishali can’t be there for Sarina’s pageant events, it’s dad who (reluctantly) steps in.
In the second episode of The Keswanis: A Most Modern Family, a bikini-clad Sarina hits the beach for a photo shoot – with hilarious reactions from her mortified dad.
“It’s hard to wrap my head around a beauty pageant,” admits a perplexed Anil. I have no clue what I’m doing.”
