Dilip Joshi has done many roles in his car­eer so far, but the character of Jethalal, that he plays in the show Taarak Mehta Kaa Ooltah Chashmah, has overshadowed them all. The Gujarat-born actor tells Giridhar Jha that this serial, a rib-tickler that has already surpassed 2,544 episodes, will continue to run until the audiences get tired of it, which does not appear to be happening anytime soon. Excerpts:

Taarak Mehta Kaa Ooltah Chashmah has completed ten years. An uninterrupted run of a decade on television, how does it feel?

It’s a surreal experience, to be honest. Never in my wildest dream did I think that it would last so long. It is getting good TRPs more than a decade since its first episode was telecast. It would not have been possible without the love and blessings of the audiences, not only from across the country but also abroad.
