Champaklal Gada who plays Babuji aka Amit Bhatt expressed, ” I was shocked to hear this news. I still can’t believe that he is no more with us. Before taking up this role, I took his blessing. I was very nervous at that time, but Taarak sir helped me in overcoming my fear. I still remember that when our show completed 100 episodes, Taarak sir called me up and said that I have done full justice to my character.  At the age of 90, he used to still make people laugh. he had great sense of humour. Our industry has lost a great person.”

He wasn’t keeping well for the past few months. He was a great gentleman and I used to always follow his advise for the show. Sad to hear about his demise. In fact, last week I had planned to meet him but for some other commitments, I couldn’t visit him.”
