Popular TV actor, Dilip Joshi, who is known for portraying the character of Jethalal Gada in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, has always said that he is inclined towards content, who are family and kids friendly. Though in the past few years, we saw OTT shows taking the charge and garnering a great boost especially during the lockdown phase. While audience are enjoying the OTT content, a section also bashes it for using of cuss words in these shows and Dilip Joshi is among them.
The actor, who is not fond this kind of content told Sourabh Pant, “If you want to show reality, then also show people going to the toilet and taking a bath. What you cater to the audience, matters. What you see, remains with you. Do you want to create a society in which people talk only using abusive language? There is a limit for everything. If it is within limit, it is enjoyable. If it goes beyond limit, it starts troubling you.”

He added, “I can understand that you need to change with time and evolve. Lekin kya gaali dena aage badhna hai? Whatever is happening in the west, you want to do that here. The west is looking at the culture of the east. Our culture and traditions are the oldest. We have so many amazing things in our culture and without knowing that, you have to blindly follow the west. In their culture, they use the F word a lot and so it doesn’t seem unnatural in their shows and content. It’s not that here. Do you talk to your parents like that?”
Dilip Joshi has also featured in films like Maine Pyar Kiya, Hum Aapke Hain Koun and Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani. So, what are your thoughts on Dilip Joshi's views? Tweet and let us know @bollywood_life.
