Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has been going on and strong for over 12 long years now and even then, it manages to enjoy immense popularity and viewership r en today. However, there have been two burning questions ever since a long time and they are – when will Days (Disha Vakani) return? And just when will Popatlal get married? On one hand, Vakani left the show over three years ago post being pregnant and giving birth where he has not returned ever since; on the other hand, Popatlal’s marriage track has been exploited way more times than one can think of and it has seemingly caught up to many now. However, these are questions that nobody is worrying about right now. Talking about these two things apart from Natukaka (Ghanshyam Nayak) too in an interview with ETimes TV, Modi said, “Natukaka is a senior citizen and has recovered from his illness but due to the pandemic, I feel, he should stay at home and follow safety protocols. We will surely get him back on the show when the situation gets better. Similarly, Popatlal’s marriage is important but it will also have to wait in the current circumstances.” About Data’s return, Modi said, “I feel I should become Dayaben now! The question of her return has been going on for many years now. We are still waiting for her to come back and if she expresses her desire to quit, the show will go on with a new Daya. But, right now I don’t feel Daya’s return or Popatlal’s wedding is important. In the pandemic there are more serious issues and I feel all those matters can wait. We have to think of safety protocols and continue shooting so that livelihoods are not affected. Also, the bio-bubble format is quite effective and if we get permission for it, I would like to work in that format.” We wonder what does the viewers have to say about that.

Anupamaa, produced by Rajan Shahi and his mother Deepa Shahi, is currently one of the top shows on Indian television. The characters of the show are all extremely popular and well written. In fact, the male lead Vanraj Shah, played by Sudhanshu Pandey is one of the most powerful characters in the TV industry.

Currently, Vanraj is going through a difficult phase of his life as he is torn between his wife Anupamaa and girlfriend Kavya. Speaking of which Sudhanshu says, ”In the current scenario, a strong character like Vanraj is also emotionally affected. Obviously, he is someone who would give his life for his family. Whether it is Anupamaa, their kids his parents, or his sister he is a family man. He is emotionally affected and the first thing on his mind is to fix everything, right now fix Anupamaa’s health. He wants everything back to normal with his family.”

Sudhanshu’s performance in the show is something the audience is glued to. Commenting on that he says, ”My performance is an outcome of the brilliant writing that our writers have been doing and it’s my responsibility to be able to execute with equal perfection as it is written. I am trying to do my best as an actor, I am happy my performance coming out really well and people are loving it.”

Speaking about his new co-star in the show Apurva Agnihotri, Sudhanshu says, ”I fondly call him Apu, he is one the most humble, kind-hearted and spiritual person just like me. He is a very dear friend and a beautiful soul and it’s always fantastic to work with somebody like him.”

Last but not least Sudhanshu also speaks about the captain of the ship. He adds, ”Rajan Shahi knows the pulse of the audience and I think that is why he is such a successful producer and constantly coming up with his innovative ideas. I think what he has done with Anupamaa is something that cannot be compared it’s absolutely unparalleled. I have seen very few people like Rajan, he hardly sleeps and he is always full of energy all day. For him, we all are always charged up and energized on the set. Rajan is a friend, a brother for my life.”

Sudhanshu also shares an important message for his fans. He adds, ”All should take care of themselves, please follow the hygiene and protocols that the government has given. people are suffering already let’s not add and contribute to that. Let’s all be together and face this pandemic and get out from this.”

Anupamaa also features Rupali Ganguly along with Sudhanshu in the lead role.
