Taarak Mehta team cancels celebrations to pay respects to Late Kavi aka Dr Hathi

MUMBAI: The team of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is still in shock with the sudden demise of actor Kavi Kumar Azad, who played the lovable character of Dr Hathi in the show.

Late Kavi passed away on 9 July after suffering a massive heart attack. The cast of the show is known to share a strong bond off-screen and are missing Kavi’s presence on the sets.

Neela Telefilms’ Taarak is completing 10 glorious years on 28 July. The entire cast and crew had big plans to celebrate this. However, due to Kavi’s demise, the team has decided to cancel the festivity.

According to our sources, there might be a puja on the sets on 28 July, but all the celebrations have been called off.

A show completing 10 years on TV is a big achievement. The credit goes to the hardworking team of Taarak for keeping viewers hooked to the show over the years. The sitcom is still ruling TRP charts and giving a tough fight to other popular shows.

We send our good wishes to everyone at Taarak, and pray that Kavi’s soul rests in peace.
