Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah will be completing 11 years of telecast soon this month. The show headlined by Disha Vakani as Dayaben and Dilip Joshi as Jethalal has been one of the top-rated shows for the longest time. Last year on this day, Kavi Kumar Azad who played the role of Dr. Hathi on the show lost his life leaving everybody shocked. Speaking to Pinkvilla, producer Asit Modi remembered the late actor and said that they miss him. 

He told Pinkvilla, "We miss him but nothing in our hand and in replacement of him Mr. Nirmal Soni playing the role is doing his job very sincerely." Well, we are quite certain about it but the loss of Kavi Kumar Azad left the team a bit emotional. Recently, on National Doctor's Day, Dilip Joshi shared a picture of Kavi Azad wishing his fans. Kavi Kumar Azad passed away on July 9 in 2018. Reports suggest that the actor passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest. 

He was referred to as the 'laughing Buddha' of their show by Dilip Joshi who was very shocked with the unfortunate news. Reminiscing about his good times with the late actor, Dilip had in an interview earlier said, "He was amazing to work with and a happy-go-lucky person. He was always very positive and kept everyone happy on the sets."

Right now, the makers are contemplating on the replacement for Disha Vakani to play the character of Dayaben.
