The shooting for popular show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma has resumed and the first ones to be back on sets are the members of the famous Tapu Sena, the child actors on the family comedy show. Lead actors on the show - Dilip Joshi (Jethalal), Mumnmun Dutta (Babita) were not present on sets on Friday. Producer Asit Modi made sure to mark his presence and ensured all safety measures were in place.
Bhavya Gandhi, who essays the role of Tapu aka Tipendra, was present with his entire gang. Asit told Mirror, “Yes, we started shooting yesterday. As the producer, I decided to also participate in the episode so I would know all the precautions that need to be taken and be able to guide my artistes on how to behave on the sets in the weeks to come. We followed all the SOPs laid down by the state government and the industry associations. Resuming work after three months was an emotional experience.”
He also revealed two landmarks that the show is all set to cross soon - 3000 episodes and a 12year-long straight run. “We complete a straight 12-year run on July 28, making Taraak Mehta… the longest-running serial in the daily soap category. Hopefully we can celebrate that,” Asit told the tabloid.
Pictures and videos from sets have surfaced online. One of them shows the crew members getting clicked, with their face masks on.
