Several of Dr. Hathi dialogues from Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah have been etched in our memories. Yesterday, the news of the death of Kavi Kumar Azad a.k.a Dr. Hathi from our beloved show took the nation by shock , disbelief and immense grief. Dr.Hathi’s dialogue “Sahi baat hai” was a favorite of the show’s fans. Though he has passed away, some of Dr.Hathi’s dialogues will stay in our minds keeping him and his memories alive forever.
As an integral part and one of the main characters of the show since many years, he has given numerous joyful moments to the audience. Here is a look at the 10 best Dr.Hathi dialogues from the show:
1. Sahi Baat Hai
This was one of Dr.Hathi’s most used and famous dialogues which he used in almost every other sentence.
2. When he put on weight instead of losing weight
He did try to lose weight but the poor guy got hungry because of the exercise he was made to do for losing weight. We can never forget this Dr.Hathi dialogue indeed because it was so funny!
3. When He Distributed Food Unselfishly
Remember that episode when both he and Komal got samosas for each other? There were so many samosas that Goli asked Dr.Hathi if he could take it for his friends and the following reply by his father was one of the best Dr.Hathi dialogues in the serial.
4. When He Taught Us All To Laugh
He played Laughing Buddha in the Gokuldham Fancy Dress Competition and taught us all to laugh away all our troubles because ‘Laughter is the best medicine’.
5. When He Counseled Bhide on Marriage
When Bhide and Madhvi were having a tiff, he gave one of the best marriage advices, being a true friend to Bhide. And, we sure agree with him on this. Hence this one was one of dialogues from Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah.
6. Meri Naak Nahi Network Hai
In the episode where he comes back despite having been on the way for some work, he says that he came back because he could smell some new kind of sweet. The dialogue he made on how powerful his nose is about smelling and sniffing food even from a far away distance is what made him a true foodie!
7. On Failing To Learn How to Dance
In one of the episodes when Komal is trying to teach Dr.Hathi to dance in order to make him lose some weight, despite trying hard he is unable to dance and then he goes on to say the following dialogue. He was such a funny and jolly character!
8. When he lost to Goli on purpose
Being a doting father he purposely lost to Goli in the Rasgulla eating competition episode and then when Goli proudly says that he won against his father, the ensuing dialogue that Dr. Hathi says is definitely one we all loved, related to and will remember forever. No wonder he was one of the most beloved characters of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah.
9. Because fresh food=healthy body
When a patient comes to him complaining about stomachache, he offers food made by Komal to the patient but the patient says no. On this Dr.Hathi gave the most apt advice.
10. Dieting doesn’t work
Probably the best advice given by Dr.Hathi was when a patient of his said that despite exercising and dieting he is not able to lose weight. So Dr.Hathi tells him to eat as his heart desires and be happy. What a genuine and honest advice.
He will definitely be missed by the actors, makers and fans of the show. May his soul R.I.P.
