Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is one of the most watched shows on Indian television. With the permission to resume shooting with proper approval by the Maharashtra government, the producers are figuring out ways to ensure the safety of all. Recently, there were reports that Disha Vakani aka Dayaben is planning to celebrate 12-year-old Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. We reached out to producer and producer of the show Asit Modi to investigate this.
Asked if the reports are true, he laughed saying, “Let the shoot resume first, there is no point commenting or discussing this right now. This is not the proper time to speak about what will happen and just speaking for the heck of it because we are all still figuring out a systematic way to first begin the shoot. First, the shoot should begin, and then we will have a little more clarity on how things will be taken forward.”
When the Maharashtra government granted permission, Modi said he was very happy with the decision and hoped to resume shooting very soon. “This is a welcome decision. Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’s fans have been waiting to watch the new episodes and we thank the government for allowing us to shoot now by following the guidelines. Hopefully, we’ll soon be able to resume the shootings after receiving the final permissions from authorities and deliver quality entertainment to our audiences which they’ve been so eagerly waiting for.”
