How ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ has entertained audiences since 7 years

MUMBAI: As one of the most popular
comedy show on television ‘Taarak
Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ completes
seven years on 28 July, one takes a
look back on how the daily family show
has been entertaining audiences with
clean comedy.

Producer and creative director of the
show Asit Kumarr Modi said, “A very
important aspect of the show is that
it offers clean comedy that can be
watched by entire families together.
Besides this we also pick up social
issues and present them with comic
sense to make them interesting. In
seven years we never needed to take
generation leap because audience are
enjoying the various tracks.”
Another reason for the success of the
show is stated to be its think-tank.

Achieving this milestone for a daily
comedy is unheard of. It’s the result
of love from our viewers and hard
dedicated work from the team of
actors and technicians alike. There is
still a long journey ahead.”

were small kids when we all had
started shooting. Working for Asit ji,
I didn’t even realize when I grew up.

moved into college. Time has just
flown by. Now we have two families,
one at home and one on the set.”
