The popular TV show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is making headlines for a long time. Now in a recent update, Dilip Joshi reacted to the reports that say there is a rift between Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah team.
Dilip Joshi, who essays the role of Jethalal in the show says that he hardly pays attention to such rumours as they are spread only to grab attention on social media.
The actor rubbished the news of fighting with co-actors Shailesh Lodha aka Taarak Mehta and Raj Anadkat aka Tapu. Joshi said he is the part of the sitcom for 13 years and the entire team is what keeps him going.
“We have been working together for 13 years now. When people talk about a rift, I just laugh it off. Just because someone wants to write something to grab eyeballs on social media, they cook up a story. I don’t even feel like clarifying things now or stating that all is well. We are a great team, which is why the show is doing so well. I am comfortable working with my co-actors and the entire team. That is probably why I have not thought about doing anything else. My character and my team keep me going,” talking to The Times of India he said.
The popular sitcom recently completed 3200 episodes. The show started in 2008.
Talking about the success of the show the actor credits the writing team. “Jethalal is a beautiful character, and even today, whenever I go out, people shower me with so much love. They keep telling us to keep the show going. It is a well-defined character, which is one of the reasons why it is so successful,” the actor shared.
Meanwhile, the team of the show returned to Mumbai they were shooting in Silvassa amid lockdown restrictions in Maharashtra.
