Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah recently got into a controversy. In an episode, Champaklal Gada (Amit Bhatt) said that Hindi is the most common language of Mumbai.
The official Twitter handle of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah issued an apology for hurting the sentiments.
They wrote, “The only thing we believe in spreading is love and happiness! We apologize if we have hurted any sentiments through our show. We believe in unity in diversity & respect for each and every religion and its mother tongue. Keep smiling & keep watching #TMKOC! @AsitKumarrModi @sabtv.”
Soon after show and its actors received an open threat by MNS, Amit Bhatt who plays the character of Champak Chacha in the show, wrote an apology letter to the party’s chief Raj Thackeray.
In the letter, Bhatt wrote that “while portraying a character I perform whatever is demanded by the scriptwriters. I personally respect Marathi language and I am proud of it. I wholeheartedly apologize for the mistake”.
