‘Shailesh Bhai can also come back.’
Dilip Joshi said in an exclusive conversation with Times of India, “As I said, change is inevitable. When he leaves the show, it is a bit difficult; of course, a rhythm is set with your co-stars, but sometimes Don’t say ever; Shailesh Bhai can come back too.”
I told social media ‘monster.’
Commenting on not being active on social media, Dilip Joshi said, “I am not that active on social media and to be honest, I don’t get that much time. Like we shoot for around 12 hours a day, and after going home, what happens. I love spending time with my family too. Social media is like a monster; once you get used to it, it won’t leave you. Better to stay away from it a bit.”
Said this on the journey of 14 years of Taarak Mehta
Let us tell you that Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has been running successfully for the last 14 years. When asked how would he describe the journey of the show? Dilip Joshi said, “The only thing I can say is that God has mercy on all of us, especially Asit Bhai. He thought of making a show based on the character of legendary comedian Taarak Bhai Mehta years ago. He wrote for 40 years, and Asit bhai took a decision, made a show on his writings and gave us all a chance to act in it.”
We have managed to set a world record.
He added, “God has a lot of mercy that people love us, and they still watch our shows. We all know that shows and movies come and go, but we have managed to create a world record. We have established that a sitcom has had so much success for 14 years. It is only because of God’s grace.
