The show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is one of the most popular and long-running TV shows in India. It has completed 13 years of going on air, and it continues to entertain a vast audience. The show is a family comedy-drama that revolves around the life of the members of the Gokuldhaam Society. The main character of the show is Jethalal, an electronics businessman who often gets into trouble for known or unknown reasons. The role of Jethalal is played by the remarkable actor Dilip Joshi.

In an interview with India Today, the actor revealed that initially he was offered the role of the father of Jethalal, who is Champak Lal Gada. But he felt he could not do justice to the role of an elderly man, so he refused the offer. Later he was offered the role of Jethalal Gada, by the makers of the show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. He accepted the role and it seems like the role was made for him. He is immensely appreciated for his role in the show. Also, he is one of the most loved characters of the show and it would be difficult to imagine him as Champaklal Gada now.

The role of his father Champaklal Gada is played by the actor Amit Bhatt, and his acting skills are also immensely appreciated by the audience. The plot of the show revolves around the Gada family, which includes bapuji, Jethalal, his wife Dayaben (Disha Vakani), son Tipendra aka Tapu.  

Dilip Joshi has been associated with the show since its inception, for more than 13 years. Reportedly, he is the highest-paid actor in the show.

Anonymous : Kuch bhi!! He was given a choice to select among those two. And he selected Jhetalal. Similarly, later Amit Bhat was given a choice among champaklal and popatlal, as he is close to Dilip he selected champaklal so that more fun can be put into the scenes.
