Popular sit-com Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is one of the most-loved TV shows of the country. TMKOC recently completed 12 years and we must say apart from entertaining us for so long, every character from the show has made a place in out hearts. Though actor Tanuj Mahashabde, who plays the character of Iyer in the show, revealed people often ask about Babita's well being (on screen wife of Iyer played by Munmun Dutta) and not about him.
In an emotional interview with TellyTalk India, the actor said, "In real life, whenever I go somewhere, people ask how is Babitaji, no one asks how is Iyer?" He further mentioned that his character is famous, but he isn't. "Iyer is famous but Tanuj is not. I would like if Tanuj is also famous. I get identified as a comedian playing a comedy role. I understand that Iyer is a big character and hence famous but I believe that people should also know the person who is playing Iyer." He also went on to say that he has become Iyer in real life and added, "My habits, thinking, everything is influenced by the character I am playing in the show. It has become like when I come home I feel like I am at work and when I am at work I feel like I am at home."
Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah recently completed 3000 episodes and became the second show to achieve this feat after Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. The show features Dilip Joshi, Amit Bhatt, Mandar Chandwadkar, Sonalika Joshi, Palak Sindhwani, Tanmay Vekaria and others in pivotal roles.
