Despite all the differences, cares about her, does not shy away from expressing his feelings, and is even emotionally available- and makes sure that the degrading remarks that his father makes about Sehmat’s country- do not hurt her. He is a husband that is truly a green flag in every sense.

8. Sattu | Satyaprem Ki Katha

If green flag characters needed a leader- Sattu would be the one. From breaking stereotypes around sex and consent, and even depression to some extent- many issues were raised in the movie. While so many social themes were explored-  the most being patriarchy. But, Sattu was in love and knew that he had to protect his wife from not just the stereotypes followed in his household, but also in Katha’s rich business family- who can’t understand their daughter. Imagine having a husband who is ready to fight the world for you.

9. Aman | Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

Sure, Rahul was popular in college and played basketball- knew fashion and tricks to impress girls (including that friendship band trend), but was he toxic- maybe, a little? He was in love with Tina or Anjali? Even if he loved Tina- shouldn’t dump your bestie within a day of finding your love, right? On the other hand, Aman was only truly and genuinely in love with Anjali- waited for her to say yes- for many years, and even decided to marry her off to Rahul for her happiness- I would’ve chosen Aman, for sure!
