Recently, Kavi Kumar Azad aka Dr. Hansraj Haathi of SAB TV’s comedy show ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah‘ passed away, leaving the entire team and thousands of fans shocked and wailing. The 45-year old actor suffered a massive cardiac arrest on June 9 and could not survive the same. By the time he was rushed to the hospital, it was already too late. He had worked on the show for a good 8 years and left an irreplaceable sorrow in the hearts of the show’s team. At his funeral in Mumbai on June 10, the entire team of the show was present to pay their last respects to the jovial actor.

While the show’s cast and crew were astounded with his sudden demise, Dr. Hansraj Haathi had predicted his death much earlier because of his obesity. Eventually, it was revealed that his death was not a coincidence.



Actually, Kavi Kumar was advised to undergo a surgery in 2008 because of his whopping 265 kg weight. After his first bariatric surgery, his weight came down to 140 kgs. However, he never showed up for his second surgery and carried on with his life.



However, all of this did not make it easy for his friends and family to come to terms with his demise. And the behavior of the public present at the cremation ceremony of Dr. Haathi only made it worse for them.




Public’s insensitive attitude at the time of Kavi Kumar’s funeral came to light after Munmun Dutta aka Babita of ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ expressed her fury in a series of social media posts. The actress revealed how people shoved their cellphones on her face in the crowd to click her pictures.



Even more shocking was how people in Kavi Kumar’s neighboring building were laughing when they spotted the actors and even clicked their pictures. Munmun Dutta mentioned that she saw no respect on the faces of these people and thus, immediately left the place so as not to create a scene publicly. You can take a look at her social media posts below:




Taking selfies over dead celebs or with the near and dear ones who are grieving is nothing but a disgrace to the departed soul. And this is the last thing we, as a human being should do or want to happen. Don’t you think the public behaved in an utter insensitive manner?
