As the saying goes, the show must go on. Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is all set to introduce Kiran Bhatt, a theater veteran with over 40 years of theater experience, as the new Nattu Kaka. Interestingly, the reel life Nattu Kakas had been real life friends! Kiran Bhatt and Ghanshyam Nayak went way back during their initial years in the theater industry.
The audiences’ were sad to know of the demise of Ghanshyam Nayak. Nattu Kaka, played by the late actor, has always been Jethalal’s trustworthy and reliable employee ever since the show started in July 2008. Their equation in the show is what has always entertained the audiences. Fondly remembered by the cast and crew for playing Natwarlal Prabhashankar Undhaiwala aka Nattu Kaka, Ghanshyam Nayak lost his battle with cancer last year.
Commenting on the same, Kiran Bhatt says, “It’s almost like the old Nattu Kaka is bringing in the new Nattu Kaka and I am glad to be doing the role of my dear friend Ghanshyam. It is a very emotional role for me and I hope to do justice to the role Ghanshyam excelled in ever since the beginning.”
