It has been almost two weeks now that the television shows resumed shoots. In fact, all the fresh episodes will start airing from July 13 on almost all the major channels, Star Plus, Zee TV among others. While everyone thought producer Asit Modi would perhaps begin shooting for Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah as soon as permissions are granted, surprisingly, TMKOC is perhaps the only show which has not resumed shoot as yet. There seem to be multiple factors for the same, but looks like the safety and regulations have been the biggest concern given that the show features a huge cast. 

A source told us, "The makers are deliberating on how to go forward in the best possible way. They are worried for the safety of the cast and crew and with the restrictions in place, how to accommodate a huge cast like theirs and bank episodes. Plus, not all the cast members on the same page and have raised their respective concerns which is why the delay in resuming shoots. They are also weighing other options to shoot which is not risky and safe for all." Well, the show is undoubtedly one of the most-watched shows.

On the other hand, shoots for Aladdin- Naam Toh Suna Hi Hoga, Bhakharwadi has already begun. However, when will the fresh episodes for the SAB TV show will air is not known as yet. Meanwhile, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah creator Asit Modi had told us in an interview, "The biggest challenge for me is how to ensure the safety of all my cast and crew members. Secondly, it is such a difficult time and comedy is such a difficult genre, how to give that happiness quotient in every episode. Thirdly, the rainy season has commenced and there are so many regulations, we will have to work very hard, it is not easy."

This is the same with every show.They also have 80 workers. But they have started. The problem is your show has many senior citizens like jetha ,tarak. other shows have youngsters are hero heroines like kartik, naira.Abi,pragya. preeta ,karan etc. Make youngsters hero,heroine eg.Tapu. Sonu.Make aphoto frame for champak with garland. We cant tolerate his over acting.

U may b right abt loudyness of character of champaklal, yet imagine he is younger by age of many other actors.

Champak shouts most of the time so his saliva droplets spread in the air and lands on his coactors face and inside their mouth. Champak is a coranaviroos spreader so old coactors are avoiding shooting.

No, there are not only the people who come to entertain us. There are almost 80 to 90 people in the team that is why they are not ready to shoot.
