Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah's Dilip Joshi enjoys jalebi fafda; Fans poke fun & ask him to beware of Bapuji
Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is known for several reasons. But, a foodie relates to the show because of the titular character, Jethalal's love for food. Jethalal is a true-blue foodie and his die-hard love for 'Jalebi-Fafda' is not hidden from anyone. Jethalal religiously follows his routine of eating piping hot jalebis lip-smacking fafdas every weekend (Sunday) on the show.
While we know Jethalal's inclination towards these Gujarati dishes, but this time, the actor who plays Jethalal is grabbing eyeballs for enjoying them. Yes, we're talking about the talented Dilip Joshi. The senior actor recently took to his Instagram handle to share a picture of himself gorging a plate of jalebi-fafda at home after the Navratri fast, and it has taken the internet by a storm. Dilip ji posted a 'happy picture' with the snacks and revealed, 'The joy of eating Jalebi-Fafda after nine days of fasting is unparalleled!'
Within moments, Dilip ji's comment section was flooded with comments. Fans poked fun at him and asked him to be careful of Bapuji (Amit Bhatt) as he does not approve of Jetha eating unhealthy food. A user wrote, 'Eat it before Bapuji sees you, while another went the Bapuji way and wrote, 'Pura din thus thus bebuchak. Nahane ja Nahane.'
Dilip ji's co-stars from TMKOC and friends also commented on his post. The show's director Malav Rajda wrote, 'You have urned Jethalal in real life too. Enjoy. Happy Dussehra.' Nirmal Soni aka Dr. Haathi wrote, 'Jaslo Jalso ho, while Mrs. Hathi aka Hasmukhi commented, 'Makasam celebrations.'
