His team couldn’t come to terms easily with Dr Haathi’s death. Actor Dilip Joshi aka Jetha Lal, couldn’t be present at his funeral, as he’s way in London.

 

 

At Kavi Kumar Azad’s funeral in Mumbai on June 10, almost all from ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah‘ team gathered to pay him their last respects.

 

 

Even his family and friends couldn’t control their emotions when they paid their last tribute to the funny man:

 

 

Dr Haathi’s death has left young children from the show sad and shocked. Bhavya Gandhi aka Tapu, posted this message of his ‘chocolate’ uncle:

 

 

But one can’t ever forget this short clip, when Azad appeared alongside ‘Dabangg’ actor Salman Khan:



 

 

What is strange and sad, is that Kavi had already predicted his death due to his obesity! He once collapsed on the sets in 2009 and was wheel-chaired into hospital.

 

 

Not many know, but he was advised for surgery in 2008 for his whopping 265 kgs! He only got saved due to doctor Muffi Lakdawala, India’s leading bariatric surgeon.

 

 

As reported by Spotboye.com, Dr. Lakdawala narrated that Kavi refused the surgery first. The doctor said, “He was extremely obese, almost dead. I had advised him bariatric surgery, but he never returned to get it done.

 

 

The doctor further stated, “I couldn’t take him off the ventilator because he was so big, he couldn’t breathe properly. After few days, he reduced to 140 kg and went back on the sets to resume his normal life.”
