Prominent cast member of Tarak Mehta ka Oolta Chashma passes away
MUMBAI: The shoot of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma has been canceled after the team learned of the cast actor’s sudden demise.
Kavi Kumar Azad who played Dr. Hansraj Hathi of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah passes away. The actor, reportedly, was admitted in Wockhardt Hospital at Mira Road of Mumbai. He was unwell for three days and slipped into a coma last night.
“We are very sad to inform loss of our senior actor Kavi Kumar Azaad. He was playing the character of Dr. Hathi in TMKOC. We lost him to a massive cardiac arrest today morning. He was an amazing actor and a very positive person. He truly Loved the show and always came for the shoot even if he was not feeling well. He called today morning that he is not well and will not be able to come for shoot. And later we got the news that he passed away. We are all too numb to say anything,”
“Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has been entertaining the viewers for the past eight years through its slice of life stories. Set against the backdrop of Gokuldham society in suburban Mumbai, the SAB TV show chronicles the lives of the members living in the society and has a hilarious take on the situations faced by its lead protagonist Jethalal Gada (Dilip Joshi) and the people around him.”
“Dr. Hathi’s presence will be truly missed in the show! Our condolences to the family.”
