Dilip Joshi, who plays the popular Jethalal
in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah
, is glad that his co-actor Disha Vakani
has become a mother again. Extending his warm wishes, Dilip said, "I am happy to know that Disha has become a mother to a baby boy. She is my co-actor and viewers have always enjoyed watching us on the show. I am happy for her and her family."

Ask Dilip if he misses Daya and he says, "It has been five years since Disha has been on a break from the show. Now, whether she will come back or not, only the production house knows and I would not like to get into it. Also, I am happy that the viewers continue to shower the same love and attention that they used to when Daya was shooting."
The actor is enjoying shooting for the show since the past 10 years and feels that comedy is a serious business. He says, "The show is running for the past 10 years and if it was not entertaining viewers or if the gags were not working, the makers would not have continued. But, as an actor, I am enjoying shooting for the show and as a viewer, I feel Taarak Mehta.... continues to be entertaining. It is not easy when you have to come up with humour in every episode throughout the year. It is one of the longest running comedy shows and therefore I feel that it is a big challenge for writers and actors to keep it going."
A few months back there were rumours of him quitting, which he rubbishes. "Social media is not my favourite place at all. People like to spread rumours. No one bothers to clarify things. I have no plans to quit the show and I am happy with my role in it."
