Not known to many, Mandar Chandwadkar and Sonalika Joshi have worked together in a Marathi TV show titled ‘Parivartan’. It was revealed by none other than Mandar himself when he was indulged in a chat with Lokmat.
Mandar Chandwadkar was accompanied by co-stars Sonalika Joshi and Tanuj Mahashabde, who shared some interesting stories related to Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. During the same interview, Tanuj (who plays Iyer in the show) said he was in disbelief when asked to play the husband of a beautiful lady like Munmun Dutta.
Tanuj said, “Not just others, but even I found it hard to digest that I am playing a partner of a beautiful lady in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah.” He further said that initially, no one in the team knew he is Marathi and believed he is South Indian instead. Tanuj earlier was a writer and an assistant director of the show. He was then approached to play scientist Krishnan Iyer.
