The hit show of television, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah continues to entertain us for more than 11 years now. The top-rated sit-com made each and every character of the show a household name. Right from Jethalal Gada to Abdul and Baga, every character has got its own identity and popularity. Though many actors left the show citing different reasons and later were replaced by the new ones. Palak Sidhwani is the latest actor to join the list as she replaced Nidhi Bhanushali as Sonu. In such a short period of time, the gorgeous girl has impressed us with her acting skills.

In a conversation with TellyChakkar, Palak Sidhwani revealed her family’s reaction on bagging this role and said, “After almost a wait of around three to four months, I got a call from TMKOC’s casting director. He asked me to visit his office urgently. I remember my parents had come to Mumbai to visit and hence I told him that I might take a while to reach as parents are at home. He told me to get my parents along with me so that they would also meet and talk. I adhered to the same and reached the office. Myself, my mother, father and brother were seated at the conference when he broke the news that I’m finalised.” Also Read – Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah SPOILER ALERT: Jethalal gives approval for Tapu and Sonu’s relationship?

She added, “The casting director said, I will go and get the contract ready and as he left the conference room, my father turned towards me and asked me if I have bagged a job at their office as he was unaware about my passion for acting. All three of us smiled at his question and explained to him that I’ll be seen in the show as Sonu Bhide. My father was a bit shocked and deep within though that probably it is some sort of a prank or it wont materialise. It is only when he saw me on Television sets that he came to terms that his daughter is now a part of the most popular show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chahshmah”.
Palak gave the credit of this to her brother and quoted, “I would like to credit my brother Harshit for his support in my journey, if it was not him, I wouldn’t be at this stage of my life. Me studying in Mumbai and coming here along with him and his conviction in me that I should follow my dreams has landed me where I am today.”
