Comedy show, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has completed 1,000 episodes and now its producer Asit Kumar Modi plans to make a movie on the light-hearted series. “Yes, I am planning to make a movie on Taarak Mehta... The film is in its scripting stage. I took this call because of the viewers’ request,” Modi says. “The film will involve film celebrities. I have already approached many of them. I’ll soon make an official announcement. These days, comedy films are working very well. So, I believe this is the right time,” he adds.
Modi plans to shoot the film on a different canvas. “I don’t want the audience to feel they are watching yet another episode of the serial. It should have a fresh take,” he says.
The show revolves around families living in a housing society. The film will go on the floors next year.
