It’s not been a very happy phase for team Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. It began with the coronavirus pandemic halting the shoot for months, like for most TV/ film shoots. When the production began again, Neha Mehta & Gurucharan Singh quit the show. Adding to it all, Ghanshyam Nayak aka Natu Kaka has undergone a big surgery.
Ghanshyam had been away from sets for a long time. If one remembers, owing to the coronavirus pandemic, actors above 65 were not allowed to get back to sets. When the rule was scrapped, Natu Kaka began shooting too. However, things turned upside down when he developed uneasiness in his neck.
The Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah actor was hospitalized last week. With recent developments, it has been revealed that Ghanshyam Nayak had as many as 8 knots in his neck. They were all removed via surgery. The actor has himself given an update on the same.
In a conversation with TOI, Ghanshyam Nayak said, “I am much better now. I have got admitted to Suchak Hospital in Malad. Today is the first day that I have eaten food after the surgery that was performed on me on Monday. The first three days were tough, but I am now only looking ahead in life.”
That’s not it. Talking about the surgery, Natu Kaka continued, “Eight knots were removed. And, I really don’t know how so many had formed. Those knots have been sent for further testing but I have faith in God, jo bhi karega achcha hi karega.”
The surgery is said to have lasted for about 4 hours. Ghanshyam also revealed how Taarak Mehta team is missing him and calling him back on sets.
“They say they are waiting for me to get back on the sets. But I have been advised a month’s rest after I am discharged from the hospital. So, I don’t think I will be able to resume shoot until Navratri at least,” Ghanshyam Nayak concluded.
We wish a speedy recovery for our Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’s Natu kaka!
