SAB TV show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is an iconic show for more than one reason. The show and it's characters are insanely popular and even after so many years with so much competition around, the show is still garnering top ratings at the TRP charts every week.
Well, the makers plan something special for every festival season and this time, as we reported earlier the team is heading towards Gujarat to shoot a special Patang baazi episode for Makar Sankranti.
Jethalal has a surprise for all the Gokuldhaamites! It's an invitation to be part of Kite Flying activities at The Statue of Unity in Vadodra, where there are various participants from foreign countries, displaying a large array of bright and colourful kites. Everybody at Gokuldham delighted and prepares for the visit.
On reaching there they all spend their time enjoying themselves and taking pictures at the Statue. Later, the Gokuldhaam members all stood at The Statue of Unity and pay their respects.
Says Mandar Chandwadkar (Bhide), "Narendra Modi's vision of creating such a huge monument which makes India proud is the perfect place for people to come, visit, fly kites, meet people and spend time with their family. I am grateful to receive such love and support."
To this adds Shyam Pathak (Popatlal), "It was like Gokuldham away from Gokuldham. It was an amazing experience. We are the first TV show that has shot at The Statue of Unity and this is a matter of great pride for us. Thanks to the entire family of TMKOC and especially Asit Modi for successfully executing this in such a short span."
In the story it is Jethalal's friend who has invited the entire Gokuldham to witness and enjoy this special Kite flying festival. "We all were happy to go there but shooting was a big issue. With so many people and all fans surrounding us, it became a very big crowd but in the end everything went smoothly and all of us had fun," comments Asit Kumarr Modi.
According to Ambika Ranjankar ,she had visited the Statue of Liberty in New York as well and she found Statue of Unity definitely at the same level as that. The feeling of unity and brotherhood was very evident in Vadodra filling her heart with pride and joy. For Tanmay Vekaria (Bagha), it was like a big picnic. He believes that this monument is not just a matter of pride for Gujarat, but for the entire country.
The cast also went for helicopter ride from which they got to see Narmada Dam and the Statue of Unity. Catch the telecast of this Makar Sankranti special on TMKOC.
