Tarrak Mehta ka Ooltah chashma is one of the most popular shows on television. It is full of comedy and also teaches important life lessons in a comic way. The show recently completed 12 years.

12 years of fun and games. 12 years of togetherness. 12 years of laughter. Tarrak Mehta ka ooltah chashma has, and will always have a special place in my heart.

On this great occasion of 12 years anniversary, Mandar Chandwadkar who plays the role of Atmaram Tukaram Bhide talks about his co-star Dilip Joshi who plays the role of Jethalal Champaklal Gada.

On screen we’ve seen the sweet-and-sour relationship between Jethalal aka Dilip Joshi and Aatmaram Bhide aka Mandar Chandwadkar, but do y’all want to know their relationship off screen?

In an interview, Mandar Chandwadkar talks about his co star, Dilip Joshi and says, “We share a great rapport off-screen too because since the time I have started watching TV, I have been a huge fan of Dilip Joshi. Whether it was Yeh Duniya Hai Rangeen, Mujhe Biwi wonderful, or Kya Baat Hai and I have been his huge fan.”

“So, the first thing was I was getting an opportunity to work with him. I would say the greatest part of Dilip Joshi is a great human being. Every actor is selfish from within, but Dilip bhai is not. If we are performing a scene together and I have to deliver a punch, he will let me do it and would not try to over shadow me because he has so much experience or a great actor,” adds Mandar.
The actor further talks about their chemistry and says, “So, this chemistry that I have with him is because he is not a selfish actor. I have learnt so many things from him and he is such a great actor. Also, in real-life too he is very humorous and that’s the reason he makes his character of Jethalal so funny. I believe when you start taking yourself very seriously and become very serious in your life, your growth stops. I think in your day to day life if you are able to identify the humour, it will work for your character.”

The actor seemed really happy and cherished about completing 12 years. He says, “It is taking time to sink in that we have completed 12 years. There are so many memories that are flashing in front of me currently. It feels awesome and great. Frankly, we never thought we would come so long. When I got the serial I only thanked God that I have bagged a project and now I will get monthly payment and I will be able to do this and that, you make your list.”
He continues, “But the moment you start working in the serial, you start getting attached to the character you are playing and the show. Then after a year or so you start realising that this is something different and people have started recognising you and appreciating your work. Then you work harder and the show starts doing well for 2, 6, 10 and 12 years and you realise this is not normal and a miracle for a show to run for 12 years.”

Tarrak Mehta ka ooltah chashma is something you can watch at any time of the day to make yourself feel better. It will make you feel light and happy. Congratulations to Tarrak Mehta ka ooltah chashma on completing 12 whole years.
