Actor Gurucharan Singh Sodhi who plays the famous Sodhi in popular show TAARAK MEHTA KA OOLTAH CHASHMAH feels all the actors of this cult show are social doctors. He says,"I was born and brought up in Mumbai but my roots are from Punjab. I came to Mumbai in 2007 with the dream of becoming an actor, I took a training in acting under Barry John for three months. My family was not aware of my passion for acting. I used to watch lot of movies and from there my passion for films developed.
When I came to Mumbai I had just told this to my mother. My sister and her husband are based in Mumbai and they become my greatest support system. The best part of my acting career is I have never struggled for my first break. Within a span of six months I have got Tarak Mehta show in my kitty. Yes initially people used to advice me I should cut my hair and all. But as a true Sikh I would have never ever thought of that. And the almighty has given me a role of Sardarji only. I have started my work in 2008 and its been a decade, ten years I have worked in this show. People ask me about monotony as I am only working in this show but not for a single day I have faced that in my life. These ten years passed in a fraction of second." Tarak Mehta is also a show which has generated a lot of positive vibes among the audience. Speaking on that Gurucharan says,"Yes certainly in today's world when everyone is so stressed and does not have time for anyone then there is a show like Tarak Mehta which is instrumental for the positivity which makes it special. At TARAK MEHTA KA OOLTAH CHASHMAH we are all social doctors. I am thankful and grateful to Asit Modi who has made this show. I never felt like doing anything else in last ten years. Roshan Singh Sodhi has become an integral part of my life now."
