It has been more than a week the shooting of various TV shows resumed but the makers of the popular TV show Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmash have not started filming yet. Notably, majority of the daily TV soaps are likely to begin airing fresh episodes from July 13 on almost all major TV channels including Star Plus and ZEE TV.
While everyone thought producer of TMKOC, Asit Modi would start shooting of the show as soon as the Maharashtra government granted permission to resume the shoot. Unexpectedly, TMKOC is perhaps the only popular TV show which has not resume shoot as of yet.
There seems to various reasons behind the same but looks like the safety and regulations have been the biggest concern given that the show features an ensemble cast.
A source was quoted as saying to Pinkvilla, “The makers are deliberating on how to go forward in the best possible way. They are worried for the safety of the cast and crew and with the restrictions in place, how to accommodate a huge cast like theirs and bank episodes. Plus, not all the cast members on the same page and have raised their respective concerns which is why the delay in resuming shoots. They are also weighing other options to shoot which is not risky and safe for all.”
On the other hand, shoots for Aladdin- Naam Toh Suna Hi Hoga, Bhakharwadi have already begun. However, when will the fresh episodes for the SAB TV show will air is yet to be announced.
Meanwhile, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah creator Asit Modi had earlier told the Entertainment portal, “The biggest challenge for me is how to ensure the safety of all my cast and crew members. Secondly, it is such a difficult time and comedy is such a difficult genre, how to give that happiness quotient in every episode. Thirdly, the rainy season has commenced and there are so many regulations, we will have to work very hard, it is not easy.”
