Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is one of the most loved shows in the history of Indian television. It’s over almost 13 years and the show is still running with the same respect and love. Today, we’ll be presenting a lesser-known fact of TMKOC and it has to do with Tanmay Vekaria aka Bagha.
To those who aren’t aware, Tanmay is blessed with a family with a background in acting. It was his father who inspired him to be an actor. Many won’t be aware that Tanmay is a son of a renowned Gujarati actor Arvind Vekaria. Arvind has been part of several Gujarati films and even stage plays. It’s his love of acting that has been taken by his son.
Interestingly, not many Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah would be aware that Arvind Vekaria had appeared in the show. Yes, you read that right! Tanmay Vekaria’s father has been part of the show. He was a part of the storyline where Atmaram Bhide (Mandar Chandwadkar) gets trapped in online fraud. The fraudster tricks Bhide and asks him to transfer money to his (fraudster) account. Worried about the unavailability of money, Bhide decides to keep his wife Madhvi’s gold jewelry as a mortgage at a jewelry shop.
Bhide keeps Madhvi’s jewelry at RBC Securities and the owner of the shop is played by none other than Arvind Vekaria. Further, as most of us know, he dupes Bhide by making him sign a fraud contract. We bet many weren’t of this fact!
