Actor Bhavya Gandhi quit the show after working for more than 8 years and was replaced by 19-year-old Mumbai based teenager Raj Anadkat.
Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has been our most favourite Indian sitcoms from the day it started. Over the last few years, the show witnessed several casting changes but after a certain period of time, it the new characters became used to us. But the old actors have still there in our heart and favorite list. One such actor is Bhavya Gandhi aka Tapu.
we have seen Bhavya’s growth from childhood to teenage in the show. It was so great to see those five members of Tapu sena together. we saw great bond between their chemistry was very natural and amusing. Thankfully, despite parting away with the TMKOC, Bhavya is still a member of Tapu Sena in real life.
Recently, Bhavya Gandhi got interviewed on ETimes where he revealed he still shares that bond with the other members of Tapu Sena, He said, “I am in touch with everyone. I am doing films right now and the schedule is different than that of TV. So, I don’t like disturbing them but they always know that Bhavya is around. If they need me for something, I am always here. I am doing a film, it will be like out of 12 months, 4 months I must be busy and rest of the months, I am just with the family, my friends, working on myself, learning new things.”
On being asked if he still is in touch with Disha Vakani (Daya Ben). Bhavya said, “We definitely have these video calls sometimes, and everytime, she sees me, she goes, ‘Aahhh, whatt, beard?’ (laughs) I say, yes, I’ve got a beard now. She has never seen me in a beard, so she gets shocked. I say, ‘Haan, aave gaiyo’ (Yes, they’ve grown) and I am growing them more.”
