He recalled, “I had shot for the show last on 16th March and now I started shooting for it from December 16th exact post 9 months. Yes, my track has been brought back and the episode will be aired in a day or two. When the shooting began after the lockdown there was a law that restricted older actors beyond the age of 60 to shoot. Then I had to undergo a major surgery. The operation was successful and now health is good.”

He also went on to praise the makers of the show for going out of the way and taking care of their actors. “On the sets of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah actors are looked after quite well. All the protocols are followed and safety measures are taken properly. The Production house of Asit Modiji looks after all of us very well. We have been given a pick up and drop facility from the production house. This is the 13th year of our show and the stow is still doing well. I feel one of the reasons behind the success of our producer Asit Modiji is because he is a good person. There has been nobody on the sets whose payment has been delayed or not been on time. He has made sure that all the artists are paid on time,” concluded the actor.
