Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has paid a special tribute to comedian Raju Srivastava. The makers remembered the time when he had come on their long-running show. Raju had entered TMKOC with Satish Kaushik years ago.
The makers shared three videos, remembering his most memorable time on the show. Raju had entered Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah as Taarak Mehta’s friend. Back then, Shailesh Lodha was still playing the lead role of Taarak. He welcomed Raju and then, Satish Kaushik, Ruslaan Mumtaz and Sheena Shahabadi of Teree Sang fame.
The trio had come to promote their movie and left after a brief introduction. However, Raju stayed back and actually entertained the Gokuldham society members. This is the time when Rita Reporter and Mohan were still members of the society.
Watch the videos here:
Raju Srivastava had repeated his famous dog and owner act for Asit Kumarr Modi’s TMKOC. He also compared the Gokuldham society members to mishti (sweets) and reasoned why he thinks they are like that.
Recreating Gajodhar bhaiya for the show, he briefly spoke about Slumdog Billionaire rather than his famous Sholay or Devdas. This was way before the show became iconic and one of the most-loved shows on TV.
Raju breathed his last at AIIMS, Delhi on September 21, 2022. The comedian was admitted after he had a heart attack on August 10.
His cremation would be held in Delhi’s Nigambodh Ghat on Thursday morning.
