The surgery lasted for four hours and Nayak has now been advised at least a month of bed rest. This means that the audience will not be able to see Nattu Kaka in the Gokuldhaam society for a long time. The actor expressed his disappointment over the news and said that he was all excited to get back on the sets when this problem was diagnosed.

He told the daily, “I am much better now. I have got admitted to Suchak Hospital in Malad. Today is the first day that I have eaten food after the surgery that was performed on me on Monday. The first three days were tough, but I am now only looking ahead in life.”

Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah resumed the shoot when the Maharashtra government lifted the restrictions after the lockdown. However, artistes above the age of 65 were still not allowed to appear on the sets. This held back Nayak who plays one of the most loved characters on the show. As soon as the Bombay High Court quashed the state guidelines, the actor was hopeful to begin work again.

We wish a speedy recovery to everyone’s dear Nattu Kaka!
