Television actor Dilip Joshi, who is popularly known for his character of Jethalal Champaklal Gada in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, a comedy show on SAB TV is all set to campaign for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the Rajasthan Assembly elections 2018.

Dilip Joshi, who is currently working for Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, a comedy show on SAB TV has previously done several movies in Bollywood industry such as Maine Pyar Kiya, Hum Aapke Hain Koun, among others. Joshi is all set to campaign for BJP candidate Lalit Ostwal, who is contesting the upcoming Rajasthan Assembly elections from Bari Sadri Assembly seat in Chittorgarh district of the state.

To campaign for the BJP candidate, Joshi is scheduled to attend a public event where he will ask support from the people for Mr Ostwal regarding the Assembly polls on December 7.

The fierce campaign for the Rajasthan Assembly elections has had its share of entertainment value.

To oppose the efforts that Bhartiya Janta Party is making to come in power in the state, the Congress party released a parody of a popular folk song, ‘Holiya mein ude de gulal’. The parody of the song was released to mock Chief Minister of the state Vasundhara Raje. The Congress titled the song as ‘Maharani thari ahankari se’, and the video of the song consists of several photographs and clips of Vasundhara Raje.

Overlooking the popularity of the character in the most popular TV show Taarak Mehta Ka Oolta Chashma, Bhartiya Janta Party has a lot of hope from the TV actor as Joshi is expected to come up as a crowd puller for the BJP candidate.

Until now, Taarak Mehta Ka Oolta Chashma is at the top in the list of the shows that are running on Indian television for a long time. The program is based on playwright Taarak Mehta’s column ‘Duniya Ne Undha Chashma’ from Gujarati weekly magazine Chitralekha.

The Assembly elections in Rajasthan for the 200-seat Assembly will be held on December 7 while the result for the same will be declared on December 11.
