Didn’t Have A Job, Used To Get Rs 50 Per Role: Dilip Joshi

Mumbai: Dilip Joshi, popularly known for his role as Jethalal from the famous comic show ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma,‘ has recently spoken about his old days when he had no work and was forced to become a backstage artist in commercial theatre.

Dilip has been active in Bollywood and theatres for almost three decades. He began his career by doing small roles in films such as Hum Aapke Hain Koun, One 2 Ka 4 and Maine Pyar Kiya.

In a recent podcast with stand-up comedian Sohrabh Pany, he recalled his old days when no one gave him work.

He said, “I started at a backstage artist in the commercial stage. No one used to give me roles. I used to get Rs 50 per role. But the passion to keep doing theatre was there. I didn’t care if it was a backstage role. The big role would come in the future but I just wanted to stick to the theatre,” was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.

Dilip still remembers how it feels performing in front of the live audience as he has been away from the stage about more than a decade.

“For more than 25 years, I was continuously doing Gujarati theatre. My last play was Daya bhai do dhaya which got over in 2007. In 2008, Taarak Mehta started and we shoot for 12 hours daily including Sundays. For theatre, you need a different kind of discipline. You have shows on weekends as well as weekdays. So it becomes difficult to manage both theatre and TV. I miss the theatre very much,” he said.
