Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah's Dr. Hathi aka Kavi Kumar Azaad's sudden demise was a big blow to his fans, family and the industry. His co-stars, from the show were also a part of his last journey and paid their last respect to him. But something from the final rites has left show’s Babita aka Munmun Dutta fuming.
Babita took to Insta stoires and shared a series of posts, where she has lashed out at people who acted to be sad and were more interested in clicking selfies than paying respect to the deceased.
Her post read, “I am really appalled with the way people were behaving when we went to pay our last respects to Hathi bhai at his house, before cremation. Clicking selfies, shoving phones on our faces, making videos. Be it aunties, uncles or the younger ones. It shows how little respect people have during such grim and depressing moments. All for a selfie? So that you can boast on your social media and circulate on your WhatsApp? During such situations, general public never comes to show respect but to spot celebrities, click pictures and have a gala time. I shouted at two people for shoving their cellphones on my face in the crowd. I saw people in the neighbouring building laughing while spotting us and clicking our pics. I saw zero respect on their faces, n left the place before it turns into a 'TAMASHA' for everyone."
On July 9, SpotboyE.com broke the sad news of Kavi Kumar Azaad, who essayed the role of Dr Hansraj Hathi in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. He passed away due to a massive cardiac arrest.
Like all of his fans and industry people, Munmun Dutta had also shared a few pictures remembering her co-star and had captioned it as , “THIS IS HOW WE REMEMBER YOU and WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER YOU. . . One of the cleanest soul, jovial, humble and a happy person. Too numb and shocked 2day. #RestInPeace Hathi bhai. Thank u 4 those beautiful memories and those special sindhi parathas."
