Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’s Dr Hathi aka Kavi Kumar Azad has left an irreplaceable sorrow in the hearts of people. The much-loved character from Sab TV’s show has also left the entire team shocked and wailing. Not just the ‘Taarak team’ but even the fans of the hit TV show are sharing grief. The actor suffered a massive cardiac arrest on June 9 and was aged 45. He was rushed to Wockhardt Hospital but it was too late by then.
It’s shocking but Kavi Kumar Azad, who worked on the show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah for a good 8 years, predicted his death earlier, because of his obesity.
Even though he died unexpected, the reactions from his team only said good things about him. The show’s creator said: “We are very sad to inform the loss of our senior actor Kavi Kumar Azad. He was an amazing actor and a very positive person.”
Mandar Chandwadkar aka Bhide revealed his shock and stated, “I still can’t believe that he is not with us. We used to eat together. He was a foodie in real life and irreplaceable.”
Bhavya Gandhi, who played Tapu in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, fondly remembers Dr Haathi as a jovial man who gave him chocolates. He shared this image of his favourite uncle:
