Ever since its launch in 2008, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has been working wonders on the small screen, putting a smile on the audience’s face with its quirky characters and comic timing. With the TV show close to reaching 10 years on air, it is the longest running sitcom in India. Aamir Khan as Jethalal and Akshay Kumar as Taarak Mehta, we have entire list below.
So it wouldn’t be a big surprise if filmmakers decided to bring the characters to the silver screen, led by some of the biggest names in the industry. So here’s what we think a Bollywood remake of the hit TV series look like.
1. Vidya Balan as Daya
The Tumhari Sulu actress would be perfect to play the innocent but overenthusiastic ‘Garba Queen’ aka Daya.
2. Aamir Khan as Jethalal
Few actors could pull off the character’s comic timing and quips like Dilip Joshi, the actor plays the role on TV. However, if anyone can do it, it’s Aamir Khan.
3. Darsheel Safary as Tapu
After a hiatus of almost 6 years, the role of the mature, grown up Tapu might be the perfect film for Darsheel to make his comeback.
4. Anupam Kher as Bapuji
The respected fatherly figure of the series and the perfect role for the veteran actor.
5. Akshay Kumar as Taarak Mehta
Jethalal’s best friend and confidant, Akshay Kumar would look perfect opposite Aamir Khan.
6. Rani Mukerji as Anjali Mehta
A strict and mature wife to Taarak, Rani Mukerji would fit the role to a T.
7. Anil Kapoor as Bhide
The aged and disciplined teacher always scolding the kids. Who would be more apt for this role than Anil Kapoor.
8. Kajol as Madhvi
Wife of teacher Aatmaram Tukaram Bhide, has to be played by someone who is high on energy and entertainment. Who else apart from our quirky Kajol could be better for this part.

9. Ranbir Kapoor as Sodhi
After seeing the actor play a quirky Punjabi in Rocket Singh,it would be fun to see him playing the short tempered Punjabi with a heart of gold.
10. Satish Kaushik as Dr. Hathi
Known for his roles in many comedy movies, the actor would be the ideal choice to play the overweight Dr. Hathi
11. Irrfan Khan as Iyer
A scientist who’s a little too protective about his wife. Only someone like Irrfan could bring the character to life on the big screen.
12. Kareena Kapoor Khan as Babita
An independent woman that everyone has a crush on. Who else could suit this role better?
13. Rajkummar Rao as Popatlal
It’ll take someone as talented as Rajkummar to play the hilarious bachelor i.e. Popatlal.
14. Rajpal Yadav as Abdul
The soda guy who has shared many hilarious moments on this show, we couldn’t get a better actor than Rajpal Yadav to perform this role.
15. Govinda as Nattu Kaka
The legendary actor would look great as the peculiar but honest manager of Gada Electronics.
16. Aparshakti Khurrana as Baagha
A promising young actor with a lot of potential, Aparshakti would be a great choice for this role.
