Show Must Go On: After Dr Hathi’s Death, Taarak Mehta’s Next Track To Be Shot At Vaishno Devi

Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has successfully completed 10 years of entertaining fans. On the occasion, the team cut a cake on-set. Disha Vakani shared two pictures from the celebration and wrote, “Tarak mehta ka ooltah chashmah completed 2500 happy sodes Missing all the cast peoples very much. Thanks all the fans for loving us. #neelatelefilms”

Now, has it that the next track of the show will be shot at Vaishno Devi.

Says a source, “The team will head to Vaishno Devi to celebrate the success of the show. In the coming episodes, you will see the stars, who play Gokuldham Society residents, planning the trip. If all goes well, the team will fly out on July 27.”

Unfortunately, Dr. Hathi (Kavi Kumar Azaad) and Daya Ben will not be a part of the track. The latter has taken a sabbatical.

To talk of Dr Hathi, a couple of days ago, Taarak producer, Asit Modi, told that the popular character will be replaced in the show.

When we contacted Modi, he was initially cagey and simply said that he hasn’t decided--- but when prodded further, he opened up and said, “We will have to replace 
Dr Hathi, if you want to know. It’s the actor who has passed away, not the character.”

It is clear that Modi has started thinking of possible replacements. However, he was not ready to talk beyond a certain point.

Kavi Kumar Azaad sadly left us on July 9 after a massive cardiac arrest. 
The cremation took place the following day and was attended by the Taarak family including Shailesh Lodha, Neha Mehta, Mandar Chandwadkar and Jennifer Mistry among others.

Dr Bhide (Mandar Chandwadkar) and Jethalal (Dilip Joshi) had extended their heartfelt condolences. Ditto for Tappu Sena. also ran a big interview with Dr Muffi, where he opened up about the actor refusing to undergo the second bariatric surgery simply because he felt that if he sheds weight, he won't get any acting offer in the TV industry!

Coming back to Taarak’s Vaishno Devi track, the fans will surely miss Dr Hathi and Daya Ben.
