Who is the new ‘Nattu Kaka’ Kiran Bhatt on the Tarak Mehta show? Will Ghanshyam Nayak be able to replace him?

There is hardly any other show in the history of Indian television that remains at the peak of popularity like Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah (TMKOC). TMKOC is no match for clean entertainment and long-term popularity. The show has set the record for being broadcast on television for the longest time. It was first broadcast in 2008. More than three and a half thousand episodes have arrived so far. It is natural that many characters have changed in the long show. Some parted ways with the TMKOC crew, and some severed ties with the show due to illness or death.

Ghanshyam Nayak, who played Nattu Kaka, one of the most powerful characters on the TMKOC show, has also parted ways. He died of cancer last year. However, after Disha Vakani’s split, if Dayaben’s character is removed, sooner or later the show will have a replacement for other actors. Like many major characters like Anjali Mehta, Sonu, Dr. Hathi, Roshan Singh Sodhi, Mrs. Sodhi, the character of Nattu Kaka has now been added after a cycle of almost nine months.

After much research, the creators of the show have chosen an artist in the form of Kiran Bhatt, who the audience knows very little about. Asit Modi himself introduced Kiran Bhatt in a promo. He said that Kiran Bhatt is an artist like Ghanshyam. Although the hero can never be replenished, Kiran has the potential to bring to life the unique character of Nattu Kaka. According to Asit Modi, Kiran Bhatt has also been his producer.

Who is Kiran Bhatt seen as the new Nattu Kaka?

Not much is known about Kiran Bhatt. But different reports and interviews suggest that he, like many other prominent actors on the show, actually comes from a Gujarati theatrical background. He has done all kinds of jobs in show business so far. He has done remarkable work in television movie theaters almost everywhere. Though he still has great love for Gujarati theatre. What is surprising is that it is thanks to the Gujarati theater that he has worked a lot with the great actors of the show like Asit Modi, Dilip Joshi and Ghanshyam Nayak.

Kiran Bhatt has an old tune with the show’s crew. His relationship with Ghanshyam Nayak is over 20 years old. For a stage play, Ghanshyam Nayak lent her voice to Kiran Bhatt. Although Ghanshyam Nayak was older than Kiran Bhatt in terms of age. This theater-age relationship was not just limited to the world of acting. Rather, the two stayed on the same page off-screen as a friend. It goes without saying that Kiran Bhatt’s first love is theater. At the moment he is also doing less in two moves. He is associated with these two works as producer and director.

It’s not that Kiran hasn’t worked for other outlets. Just like drama, she has also done a lot of work for movies and TV series. If attention has been paid, then Kiran Bhatt’s characters must have been noticed in movies like Ram Gopal Varma’s blockbusters Rangeela and Satya. Rangeela, starring Aamir Khan, was a musical box office hit, while Satya Cult, showcasing the history of Mumbai’s underworld, is on today’s date. Kiran Bhatt has also played minor roles in many other movies. However, thanks to ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’, he certainly gained more recognition.

The actor played Ketki Dave’s brother in ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’. This show also revolutionized the world of Indian television by breaking all the popularity records of its time. By the way, there are many shows on the actor’s account. But for ten years he was missing from the small screen. The Tarak Mehta show is also a kind of comeback for Kiran Bhatt after ten years. The big challenge for him is to be close to the benchmark that Ghanshyam Nayak has set as the character of Nattu Kaka and to live up to the expectations of the audience and the creators.

In an interview, Kiran Bhatt also said that despite her old friendship with Asit, she had auditioned for the role of Nattu Kaka. He felt that by being close to Ghanshyam, he could have done the character more justice. The creators state that after much research, Kiran Bhatt was selected for the character.

How close is Kiran Bhatt to Ghanshyam Nayak?

Kiran Bhatt’s episodes as Nattu Kaka have been broadcast on television. There is no doubt that the audience misses Ghanshyam Nayak and finds Kiran Bhatt weak. This is why viewers are seen saying on social media and showing related discussions that the new Nattu Kaka will never be able to make up for the old Nattu Kaka. Actually, Kiran Bhatt’s character as Nattu Kaka cannot be called weak. He is also seen as an actor for me. But for viewers who have been used to seeing the same artist in one character for nearly 13 years, the sudden arrival of another is enough to make them uncomfortable.

Ghanshyam Nayak and Nattu Kaka had settled into each other. Ghanshyam was rich in versatility. For example, the actor, who has sung in more than 12 Gujarati movies as a playback singer, also spread the magic of his voice in the show. Whereas he had extensive experience as an actor. In his career, he played minor and many attention-grabbing roles in some 100 Gujarati and Hindi films. He also did about 350 TV shows. The character of Nattu Kaka was the biggest peak of his career in terms of popularity. He acted in such a simple way that people know him as Nattu Kaka instead of Ghanshyam Nayak. It is difficult for someone to take his place.

There is no doubt that the new Nattu Kaka will be under tremendous pressure from the old. But the decision of the makers can be considered much better in one respect. A new face has been chosen for the character of Ghanshyam Nayak, whose face or acting has not received much attention from people. This one thing will help Kiran Bhatt easily get into Ghanshyam’s character and into the minds of the audience. It is possible that he will soon establish himself as Nattu Kaka. Kiran Bhatt has the ability to play a better role. Perhaps, over time, they too will settle into character like the other actors who are replaced on the show.
