(1 & 2 /6) It all began with Taarak Bhai’s iconic characters from his ‘Duniya Ne Undha Chashma’ stories in Chitralekha. This cartoon is of the Jethalal I grew up with. Thank you, Taarak Bhai. You are dearly missed. Your smile has kept us going. (3/6) Lucky for me, I had Asit Bhai, a longtime friend, and a seasoned producer who I trusted immensely and had worked with before, offer me the choice of playing Jethalal, adapted by him for television! Thank you, Asit Bhai. (4/6) Fast forward to look tests, a pilot episode, and finally, the first episode that aired on Sab TV on 28th July 2008. We were all given a glimpse into the world of Gokuldham Society for the very first time. We had absolutely no idea that more than a journey, this show would turn into a discovery! (5/6) It’s rightly said that it’s not work, if you love what you do, and the brilliant team that I work with day in day out, have made me fall in love with my work more than ever. To teammates who have had to leave us during the run, we miss you everyday and for me, you will always be an equal part, infact every department of this blessed production is responsible for this achievement today. So, thank you, Team TMKOC. (6/6) Playing this character is a gift that keeps giving. And a huge chunk of the credit goes to the fans and well-wishers of the show who have welcomed us and allowed us to be a part of their lives in so many unimaginable ways! So, thank you to everyone who’s reading this right now. And last but never the least, thanking the Ultimate Maker of this show called Life, for giving us all the constant strength to carry on this mission of spreading smiles.

Great acting

Anonymous 2 months ago

Dilip Joshi-ji is such a great actor because he himself is so sensitive and so emotional as a person. That's why he can enact a character with such efficiency. Acting is all about portraying emotions and it's only a person who himself is emotional can do justice to a role played by him. And as a regular audience of the show Tarak Mehta ka oolta chasma the only thing I can say;in addition to what I have said already-is that I thank everyone associated with the show, including dilip Joshi-ji for giving us pure and unadulterated entertainment and laughter for such a long time. Your show reminds the audience of classic and sweet entertaining films made by hrishikesh Mukherjee, Basu Chatterjee and other maestros who didn't have to commercialize sex unnecessarily in the name of entertainment. Just like those all time classic movies made by those maestros, Tarak Mehta ka oolta chasma can also be viewed and enjoyed with the entire family. I am sure that the popularity of Tarak Mehta ka oolta chasma will continue to defy time and it will be watched and telecast for ever at least as long as the concept of time remains intact.
