While talking to a leading daily, Dilip Joshi who is playing the role of Jethalal said that he is missing Disha Vakani as the show completed 11 successful years.
“I am missing Disha Vakani a lot today. I have worked with her for almost 9 and a half years and it is not a short period. I feel she is still with us, it just that her priorities have changed now. She is a mother now and her priorities have obviously changed and today on this occasion we all are missing her,” Dilip told Times Of India.
He further said, “The AV brought back a lot of old memories. I had forgotten a lot of scenes and today when I saw them I was surprised. We became viewers while watching the AV. I can’t thank viewers enough for the love they have showered on us. I would thank God also as he kept us all healthy throughout the show. I would also like to thank Taarak Mehta, the humourist. In television industry if the characters are impressive, the show is automatically loved by people and he had written these characters in 1972. All the characters are lovely and till today people love them.”
“Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has changed my life. All the love and blessings that I have got in my career has been only after doing this show. I got recognition because of this show. I have worked a lot in this industry and have done multiple projects, but after doing Taarak Mehta… people’s perception towards me changed. I would like to thank God for the opportunity that he gave me through this show,” shared the actor.
