Play-writer of the popular comedy TV show “Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma” has demised on Thursday, 1stMarch 2017 which has come as a shock to the show crew. Since 2008, the writer’s Gujarati column “Duniya neundhachashma” is the inspiration behind the successful sitcom and has become the flagship show of the channel SAB TV.

Actor Dilip Joshi featuring the role of Jethalal in the show informed that they are planning for a special show in the memory of the late beloved writer soon. The entire team of producers will now see how to achieve as a tribute.

Late Shri Tarak Mehta was honoured by the Padma Shree award in 2015. The producer Asit Modi who is close to the demised writer will visit the family at Ahmedabad. “He was quite old. So, there were many age-related problems. This doesn’t come as a shock but of course is very saddening as I was close to him. I met him just last month. I will probably fly to Ahmedabad today,” the producer said.
