The show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is the longest-running sitcom on national television. It revolves around Jethalal, a Gujarati businessman, played by Dilip Joshi. The show also sees Shailesh Lodha, playing the character of Taarak Mehta in a key role. On the show, Jethalal and Taarak are best of friends. And, it is Jethalal who often turns to Taarak for friendly advice or when in trouble. But, according to a report, the popular onscreen friendly pair is reportedly not on such good terms off-screen.
According to a report in Koimoi.com, a source revealed that Dilip Joshi and Shailesh Lodha have reportedly restricted themselves from speaking to each other. The source in the report said, “Dilip Joshi and Shailesh Lodha restrict themselves from speaking to each other. They come, shoot their scenes together and head straight back to their vanity van. There remain some unknown rifts of the past that both aren’t willing to work upon.”
While the insider dished out some shocking details about the relationship that lead actors of TMKOC share, the source also mentioned that both Shailesh and Joshi are highly professional. The source close to the development said, “Both Shailesh Lodha as well as Dilip Joshi are highly professional. Their way of working will never let you believe that they don’t converse in real life. But the situation is quite opposite in real life. They don’t even smile at each other anymore. It’s just purely work.”
Meanwhile, it was only recently reported that actress Disha Vakani, who played the iconic role of Dayaben on the show, has permanently bid goodbye to TMKOC. She reportedly won’t be making a comeback.
