In conversation with Dilip Joshi
Buzz up!
Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is popular amongst people of all age groups. Everyone loves the serial and its most popular character Jethalal played by Dilip Joshi. Dilip Joshi is not a new face and has been doing Gujarati theatre and ads since a long time. We caught  Dilip Joshi in a candid mood.

Share a little known fact about you
I was born and brought up in Mumbai and spent my childhood in Bhuleshwar. I was very studious in school. I was very shy and found it difficult speaking to women. I was always interested in acting so I started doing theatre from the age of 12 and many people appreciated my acting talent and suggested I should take acting as a career. And my mom also saw the talent in me and helped me making my career in acting and today here I am.
Dilip Joshi

What are your passions?
I love travelling and meeting different and new people. Different people teach you different things. You get to know various perceptive about life and that's why I love making friends. I also love watching films.
How much Jethalal is in you as a person?
Not at all. I am totally different from Jethalal. He is always fun and laughing whereas I am actually serious.
Dilip Joshi

How much life has changed after you signed the show Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltha Chashma?
It has changed a lot as now people recognize me wherever I go. Everyone comes to me and ask for an autograph. I am happy that I make people laugh because it's very difficult to do that.
Dilip Joshi

What's the best thing about being an actor?
Being an actor you love the attention and recognition you get  from audience, fans and industry. Your work gets recognized by a large audience whereas if you are working in a bank or something only your boss knows how capable you are at your work.
 Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah
 The bad thing about being an actor?
You don't have any personal life left. Wherever you go people keep a watch on you.

Who is your idol?
My mother. She has been with me whenever I needed her to show me the correct path. She is very practical woman and I love her.

 Has any fan hit on you? Or any memorable fan incident?
(laughs) No no one has hit on me. But I remember I was in Muscat when an Arabic man in his full attire suddenly came upto me and said, " Hi Jhethalal! I saw here and there to check with whom he is talking then he continued by saying- I watch your show regularly and love it specially your wife, Daya in the show."

Apart from TMKOC which other TV shows you watch?
I am so busy working and shooting that I don't get time to watch even my own serial. But sometimes I watch Friends and right now there is a show on
STAR Plus called Sasural Genda Phool which is very nice.
Dilip Joshi

If not working?
Then I am spending time with my family because I hardly get time to spent with them. so even If I get three hours I am with them talking and spending quality time. For every relationship communication is the best key.
