Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah needs no introduction! The sitcom is one of the landmark shows in Indian television history. Enjoying the golden run since 2008, the show has gifted some genuine laughter and lovable characters over the years.
Amongst all the characters, Jethalal (played by Dilip Joshi) remains to be the most loved as he is also the central part of the show. And whenever we talk about the Sethji of Gada Electronics, his innocent flirting with Babita Ji (played by Munmun Dutta) comes in our mind. Although Jethalal is married, he crushes badly on Babita and his attempts to impress her, makes us laugh out loud.
