The actor will make his entry in the ‘Tappu birthday special’ episode of Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. His friends, also called Tappu Sena, have planned a party for him. After initial confusion, Tappu’s father Jethalal promises to pay the bill for the party. In the party, a brand new Tappu returns, all grown up and suave and is smart, witty and sensible. The character is very helpful and sensitive but he is also in college, so, he can no longer be the child that he was.
