Dilip Joshi Talks About OTT Platforms: Great Performances, But Lot Of Expletives Used When Not Necessary

Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah (TMKOC) is one of the most family-friendly shows on Indian television. The show recently completed 3,000 episodes, and its following only seems to grow by the day. People relate to a lot of the characters on the show like Taarak Mehta, Jethalal Gada, Daya Ben, and many others.

Recently, veteran actor Dilip Joshi, who plays Jethalal on TMKOC, opened up about OTT platforms in a chat with comedian Sorabh Pant. Joshi shared, "On OTT platforms, we can see some mind-blowing work. There are some great performances. But I feel that there are a lot of expletives used when they are not necessary."

He added, "If you want to show reality, then also show people going to the toilet and taking a bath. What you cater to the audience matters. What you see, remains with you. Do you want to create a society in which people talk only using abusive language? There is a limit for everything. If it is within limit, it is enjoyable. If it goes beyond limit, it starts troubling you."

Emphasising on the fact that using abusive language doesn't indicate a progressive society, Joshi said, "I can understand that you need to change with time and evolve. Lekin kya gaali dena aage badhna hai (Does using bad language mean progress)? Whatever is happening in the West, you want to do that here. The west is looking at the culture of the east. Our culture and traditions are the oldest. We have so many amazing things in our culture and without knowing that, you have to blindly follow the West. In their culture, they use the F-word a lot and so it doesn't seem unnatural in their shows and content. It's not that here. Do you talk to your parents like that?"

What do you think? Do you agree with Dilip Joshi's thoughts on OTT platforms?

Speaking of TMKOC, the cast of the popular TV show recently visited the sets of dance reality show India's Best Dancer, and shook a leg with judge Malaika Arora and the contestants. The dance show's contestants also dedicated performances to the popular characters in the show.
