Over the period of 12 years, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has became a household name in India.

While talking with Pinkvilla, Asit Kumarr Modi said, “We miss him but nothing in our hand and in replacement of him Mr. Nirmal Soni playing the role is doing his job very sincerely.”
Also, actor Ambika Ranjankar who essayed his on-screen wife shared a picture on Instagram with a caption, ” You’ll always be in our hearts… I’m sure you are watching over us”.
Tanmay Vekaria (Bagha) too, shared Azad’s picture on Instagram with a caption, “On his first death anniversary, his is still living in our hearts”.
Last year on 9th July, Kavi Kumar Azad died after a massive cardiac arrest, at the age of 46. Actor Nirmal Soni replaced the actor for the role of Dr.Hathi.
