Dileep has been working in the show for 13 years
Dilip Joshi said, “We have been working together for 13 years. When people talk about estrangement, I laugh at it. Just because someone wants to write something to get attention on social media. I don’t even feel like clarifying things or saying that all is well. We are a great team and that is why the show is doing so well. I am comfortable working with my co-stars and the entire team Maybe that’s why I didn’t think of doing anything else. My character and my team propel me forward.”
Fans keep asking Dilip to keep the show going
On getting offers for web series, Dileep said, “I get offers from web shows and there are many opportunities too, but at the moment I am happy to play Jethalal. I can consider these things in the future if I want to. Jethalal is a beautiful character even today, people shower so much love on me whenever I go out. They keep asking us to keep the show going. It is a well-defined character, that is the reason for its success.”
What is the claim of the reports?
According to reports, Dilip Joshi and Shailesh Lodha shoot their respective scenes for the show and go back to their respective vanity vans. It is being said that both are not even smiling seeing each other. Both live in a very professional manner on the sets. Looking at the way they work on the sets, no one can even guess that there is any kind of estrangement between them in real life. Whereas in real life, they do not even smile at each other. Their friendship is visible only during work.
The show is based on the lives of the residents of the housing society of Mumbai.
