Shailesh Lodha, who plays author Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah in the series, was a man of “enlightening” words. It holds the record for the longest broadcast on television and is loved by family audiences.
In an old video, Shailesh Lodha is seen doing an indirect search on the Kapil Sharma Show (at the time it was Comedy Nights With Kapil). He draws parallels with his show and says there has been too much vulgarity on television.
In the video uploaded by ‘Do Bol’ to YouTube, he said: ‘People ask me what are you doing for your country? You yourself work for money. I tell them, ‘I promised myself I wouldn’t do such a show on TV that I have to ask my daughter not to watch.’ “
He also said, “I am proud to be a part of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. There is so much vulgarity (फूहड़ता) in terms of content on TV these days. “
Taking an indirect search at the Kapil Sharma show, he also spoke about Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. Shailesh Lodha added, “I’m ashamed to watch TV shows these days. A grandmother who wants to kiss everyone on the show, “bua” who is desperate to get married? A husband continues to abuse (प्रताड़ित) his wife? I work for a show where a son always touches his father’s foot, and a grandson respects his grandfather, I come from a show where we have people of various faiths from Sikh, Hindu, Gujarati, Rajasthan. We greet each other with “Jai Jinendra”. “
“It is because of the love of you all; it is the world’s oldest daily television show. We can support people without becoming vulgar, ”concluded Taarak Mehta of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah.
