Taarak Mehta's Bhide aka Mandar Chandwadkar clarifies he is alive after false news of death spreads on social media
Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah actor Mandar Chandwadkar, who plays the role of Atmaram Tukaram Bhide, had to come Live on Instagram after false news of his death spread on social media. The actor shared that he is hale and hearty unlike what's being reported.
Mandar in his Live video said, "Namaste, How are you all? I hope work is good. I am also at work. But there's news that someone has forwarded, so I thought to come LIVE before people get worried. On social media, rumours spread faster than fire. I just wanted to confirm that I am shooting and enjoying myself."
He added, "Whoever has spread the false news, I request him to stop it. May God bless him with 'sadbudhi'. Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah's artists are completely healthy and happy. They plan to do a lot of work in the future for many years and entertain people."
It's not just Mandar but earlier other artists such as Divyanka Tripathi, Mukesh Khanna, Shweta Tiwari, Shivaji Satam among others have also been victims of death hoax. They had to give interviews and make posts on social media to clarify the false reporting.
Talking about Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, ETimes TV broke the news of Shailesh Lodha quitting the sitcom. He has not been seen in the show of late. He is apparently unhappy with the exclusivity contract and wants to explore other mediums.
The makers are trying their best to retain him on the show.
