Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, popularly known for its small screen serial, has recently completed 9 years of its broadcast and has stepped into the tenth year. For a long time, this serial has been enjoying the audience. This is the longest running comedy show on the small screen. On this occasion, we talked to Serial’s main cast Dilip Joshi Urf Jethalal and producer Asit Modi.
Dilip Joshi, popularly known as Jethalal, who has become popular in this house, says, “I still do not believe that we have come a long way. When the first episode was telecast, nobody knew that this show will run for so many years, people will get so much love and this show will become the child of all children and old people. All the people we meet, they all say that seeing this show, they get pleasure. This class and the mass has made a place in everyone’s heart. We would like to thank our fans and God for this. ‘
The real identity is lost somewhere
Sharing a funny story related to his fans, Dilip said, “In my life, my real identity has been lost somewhere. People do not call me ‘Dilip’ but rather ‘Jethalal’. I remember, once we went to Ahmedabad, to shoot and we were in the open jeep. Then our Jeep stopped at a signal. There was a beggar begging there. Suddenly he shouted loudly, ‘Jethalal, Jethalal!’ I was surprised to see this. I thought it would be where the TV would be at home, then I thought maybe it would have seen me in the serial watching someone else’s TV on the house. But at that time I realized the power of an actor. There is another incident. I went to a wedding and there I got a woman. He told me that his mother is 80 years old and he does not recognize anybody in the family, but when your serial comes, they come in front of the TV and recognize you and keep watching you smile. I was very happy to know this. ‘
New characters and a lot of outdoor!
Nine years ago when producer Asit Modi had made ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ on the small screen, he did not even think that this serial would be so long. Asit says, ‘It does not seem that nine years have passed. It seems as if it has just happened nine days. Wherever I go, I get to like this show. This is a huge achievement for me as a producer. Now it is my responsibility to make it more pleasant and interesting in the forthcoming episodes, hence the audience will now be able to see new characters and more outdoors in the show. There will be more new children joining the Pappu Army If Pappu is now young, then he will create new stories on it.
