There’s no doubt that Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’s popularity is unparalleled and it’s a subject of research. Despite a considerable section of viewers trolling it for lame humour, the show speaks it all through its television ratings. Even social media and streaming platforms will give you enough proof about the sitcom’s following.
Recently, while scrolling through YouTube, we got enlightened by an amazing fact and we’re damn sure that hardly anyone would be aware of it. We were looking for the most-watched episode of Taarak Mehta and then, we came across the episode 387. Its views of 113 million and plus, literally speaks volumes of show’s fan following. It’s the episode which has a storyline of water shortage in Gokuldham Society. And who can forget that hilarious scene of Champaklal being put away by the water force?
But the most amazing fact about the episode was that it had views more than the trailers of some blockbuster Hollywood films. In terms of views, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’s episode was way ahead than Joaquin Phoenix starrer Joker‘s trailer. Uploaded 11 months ago, the film’s trailer has recorded 90 million views until now. Not just Joker, but it’s even way ahead of Suicide Squad’s 91 million views. Interesting, isn’t it?
Many of you might argue that Taarak Mehta’s episode was uploaded several years ago but isn’t it’s impressive that a 20-minute long video has been viewed for so many times. We are still surprised, what about you?
Featuring Dilip Joshi, Disha Vakani, Amit Bhatt, Munmun Dutta and others, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is enjoying a glorious run since 2008.
