During an exclusive interview with us, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah actor Dilip Joshi aka Jethalal opened up about his co-actors Shailesh Lodha and Disha Vakani who played Tarak Mehta and Dayaben respectively and have now quit the show.
On being asked about how much he misses his co-actress Disha Vakani as the two have shared the screen for so many years, Dilip Joshi said, “Definitely, for the last 10 years, you can say Disha Ji and I have worked together, and as you mentioned, since day 1, our chemistry and tuning went well and it was fun. Of course, Disha Ji has been the number one artist and especially in comedy, and she had that uninhibited approach that every actor should have, and it is very rare in female artists but Disha Ji, of course, was wonderful. Seeing the madness of her character, her execution was enjoyable. Not only as an actor did I enjoy her acting but also as an audience. I often watch the clips from the previous episodes and I think when did we shoot that scene since we have done so many scenes together in the past 14 years that we forget whether we have done it. So yes, definitely, I personally miss her very much. I definitely miss the fun of doing such scenes with her.”
While later being mentioned about Shailesh Lodha’s exit he said, “As I said, changes will be there and there would be difficulties throughout, but never say never, you never know Shailesh bhai may come back in the show”.
