Your ‘Taarak Mehta’ (Sailesh Lodha), is his neighbour. ‘Jethalaal’ finds a friend and philosopher in ‘Taarak Mehta’ and often goes to him for advice whenever he is in trouble. Jethalaal’s family includes his simpleton wife ‘Daya Ben’ (Disha Wakani) and a mischievous son ‘Tapu’ (Bhavya Gandhi). Tapu is a menace and a constant source of trouble to all the members of Gokuldham. They have often warned ‘Jethalaal’ to reform ‘Tapu’ or else be prepared to leave the premises. Lost hopes of being heard by his son pushes Jethalaal’ to call his father ‘Champaklal’ (Amit Bhatt) from the village. This was his great idea of leashing some control over the mischievous Tapu.
