Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah actor Kavi Kumar Azad who recently passed away shockingly is soon to be replaced on the show. Kavi Kumar Azad played the role of Dr. Haathi & was very loved by the fans of the show.
Asit Kumar Modi producer of the show said “The character of Dr Hansraj Hathi is one of the most popular ones from the show and while the cast misses the presence of Mr Azad on sets, eliminating the character from the show will not be a smart move.
I am personally looking into the casting & will soon get the perfect replacement. While it’s really hard to find someone as talented as Kavi, we are doing our best. We should have a confirmation about the replacement soon.”
Actor Nirmal Soni, who previously played the role of Dr Hathi for a year till Mr Azad took over in 2009 is leading the race to return as the new Dr Hathi.
