  • The death of Ghanashaym Nayak has left TMKOC's hilarious trio of Jethalal, Bagha, and Nattu Kaka incomplete.
  • Will the makers introduce new actor as Nattu Kaka or a new character in his place?

Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is one of the longest-running television serials in India. With its massive fan following the comedy, the serial is sure to continue for many years to come. Until now, the scenes of Jethalal, Bagha and Nattu Kaka have been some of the most iconic ones with their hilarious banters and quarrels, adding a lot of fun to the episodes.

Recently, Ghanashyam Nayak who portrayed the character of Nattu Kaka on Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah succumbed to cancer. He has been away from the show for the last few months because of his bad health. But fans were expecting him to start appearing on the show sooner or later. Now that he is no more, the producers will have to come up with either another actor who can take his place or introduce a new character who can join Gada Electronics.

Jethalal’s shop will now need an accountant and a trustworthy and respected person who will take place of Gada Electronics in Nattu Kaka's absence. Earlier when the actors left the show, the makers replaced most of them with other actors. For example, after the death of Kavi Kumar Azad who portrayed Hathi Bhai, he was replaced by Nirmal Soni.

Tappu aka Bhavesh Gandhi was replaced by Raj Anadkat, Neha Mehta aka Anjali Mehta by Sunanya Fouzdar and Roshan Singh Sodhi aka Gurucharan Singh by Balvinder Singh Suri. So, there is a strong possibility that the TMKOC makers might introduce a new actor as Nattu Kaka. Even earlier when an actor left the show, the producer Asit Kumarr Modi had said that the show must go on. Ghanashyam Nayak has made the portrayal of Nattu Kaka immortal and it would be difficult for the fans to accept someone else in his place.

Also, there is a possibility that they may introduce a new character or make Bawri a regular feature now on the show. She is educated and can join Gada Electronics. With Bawri and Bagha together in the shop, hilarious situations can be created that will annoy Jethalal to no limits.

There is also a chance that they may not replace Nattu Kaka with a new actor or character just as they are yet to replace Disha Vakani aka Dayaben.
