Thanking fans and audience for the love and support, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah creator Asit Kumarr Modi shared that the milestone is a matter of pride for the entire nation.
“We will be completing 3000 happysodes on September 24, and this brings with it a feeling that I cannot effectively express in words. For the first time in twelve years, the airing of the show was interrupted for a couple of months due to the unfortunate lockdown. Through this time too, our viewers and well-wishers stood by us and supported us. Now that we are back on, our commitment to keep creating great content ingrained in social values, and spreading happiness and positivity through the show remains right at the top,” shared Modi in a statement.

Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is the world’s longest-running daily family comedy show because of the entire team’s efforts and commitment. I also thank each and everyone associated with the show who has contributed to its huge success,” concluded Asit Kumarr Modi.
