Finding Dr Hathi's replacement a big trouble for Tarak Mehta team
New Delhi : 45 days have passed to the sudden demise of Kavi Kumar Azad, who was famous for his on-screen character Dr Hathi; the makers of Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma are still looking for his replacement but they are unable to select on any one person.
Kavi Kumar Azad has his own style that used to add drama amid comedy in the show. It is definitely not an easy to find a man of calibre equal to him.
A source close to the show told SpotboyE.com recently that, "Kavi was extremely funny. You saw him and you started laughing- not because of his weight but because of his facial expressions. He was all the time so good at his job, the character had almost got into him even in his daily life. It has just not been possible to get someone even remotely close as him till now. We definitely want someone as Dr Haathi in the episodes ahead, but we surely cannot cast anybody for just the heck of it. Kavi raised the standards so high that the next Dr Hathi will have to be at least extraordinary if not as good as him."
Kavi Kumar Azad had died on July 9 after he suffered a sudden cardiac arrest. Whole TV fraternity was left in shock knowing the news.
The 46-year-old Azad hailed from Sasaram, Bihar and had always dreamt of becoming an actor. Bagging the role of Dr Haathi in the SAB TV sitcom was a big break for the actor who replaced actor Nimal Soni on the show.
