Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is one of the most popular TV shows of the country. The show has been ruling the small screen from over last decade and the fans are joyous that the shoot will soon resume and we will get our laughter dose. The camaraderie between Palak Sidhwani aka Sonu and Raj Anadkat aka Tappu is one of the key highlights of the show but it will amaze you to know that both the actors share a very cordial relationship off-screen and are not friends in real life.
Talking to TellyChakkar, Palak spoke about her bond with Raj and said, “ See there are 80 people on the set, and it’s not necessary to be friends with each one of them, in fact in your office I’m sure you’re not friends with everyone who works there right? Raj and I, we share a professional relationship and there’s no fight as such, it’s just that I get along with Samay (Gogi), Kush (Goli) and Azhar (Pinku) more, but that doesn’t change the fact that Raj and I share a cordial relationship and he’s my working partner”.
The actress earlier revealed to TOI that she picked Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah over another show. “I had forgotten about it and suddenly I got a message on my whats app in the month of May saying that the auditions were still on. He had also sent a script with the message and I really liked the role. I was asked to prepare for the audition and come the next day. That time all my friends were looking out for a job as the exams were over, out of pressure I was also doing the same. Though, I wanted to make a career in acting but I always wanted to have a backup plan. I was giving regular interviews. I gave my auditions and I had this instinct that I had done good. After a week I got a call that I was shortlisted. At the same time I was shortlisted for another show on another channel, but I wanted to do Taarak,” said Sidhwani.
