Ghanashyam Nayak who is more famous as Nattu Kaka of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah breathed his last on Sunday. He was diagnosed with cancer at the start of this year. That was why he stopped appearing on the show when the shooting resumed after the lockdown was lifted. He did appear for a few minutes but it was evident that his health was not good and Ghanashyam was facing some problems when he was delivering the dialogues.
Fans will always remember him as Nattu Kaka even though he worked in many other serials, movies, and dramas. He was a veteran actor who started his journey from the Gujarati stage and later on went on to entertain the audience with his unique style of acting on TMKOC.

BREAKING 💔 #natukaka #TMKOC
Tmkoc Character Natukaka passes away at the age of 77
As he is suffering from cancer from last 1 Year...... !
We'll Missed him and his Funny ,comedy episodes badly ...
Despite being in the entertainment industry for 50 plus years, Ghanashyam had to face a lot of financial issues for a larger part of his life. Even after working in some big movies like Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Ghanashyam had to borrow money to pay his rent.
It was only after he got the role of Nattu Kaka in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah that Ghanashyam started earning good money. And that is one reason why he never wanted his children to become actors.
Nevertheless, TMKOC gave him a lot of fame as well as a stable life. The Jodi of Nattu Kaka, Bagha, and Jethalal has triggered riots of laughter on the show and it is impossible to visualize Gada Electronics without Nattu Kaka sitting in the chair of an accountant. Be it coming up with tricks to save Bagha and Bawri from the wrath of Sethji or replying to Jethalal in his typical English, Nattu Kaka had created a special place for himself on Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah.
Nattu Kaka’s constant complaint, “Pagar Kab Badha Rahe Ho Sethji” to Jethalal will now be missed.
