Recently, Shailesh Lodha aka Taarak Mehta’s friend Jethalal, played by Dilip Joshi clarified rumours about their rift. During a conversation with The Times Of India, Joshi said, “We have been working together for 13 years now. When people talk about a rift, I just laugh it off. Just because someone wants to write something to grab eyeballs on social media, they cook up a story. I don’t even feel like clarifying things now or stating that all is well. We are a great team, which is why the show is doing so well.”
Shailesh Lodha also said, “I am comfortable working with my co-actors and the entire team. That is probably why I have not thought about doing anything else. My character and my team keep me going.”
