Bhavya Gandhi is an Indian actor. He was born on 20 June 1997 in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.
Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is one of the most loved and longest-running shows on Indian Television. The Sab TV sitcom is about to complete 12 successful years of running, and fans are eagerly waiting to see what new the show brings to them. All the characters are equally adored by the viewers, but discussions about TMKOC are incomplete without mentioning Tapu. The show introduced us to a mischievous bunch of kids, led by their leader Tapu. Tapu is Jethalal Gada (Dilip Joshi) and Dayaben's (Disha Vakani) son on the show. He is shown as a naughty kid, who likes to play cricket all day long, is naughty, likes to decorate the Gokuldham society on occasions, and likes to trouble Mr. Bhide with his mischiefs.
During this 12-year journey of TMKOC, the character of Tapu has been played by two actors, namely Bhavya Gandhi and Raj Andakat. When the show started back in 2008, we saw little Bhavya take on the role of Tipendra Jethalal Gada aka Tapu, and win hearts with his innocence and Masti. Bhavya as Tapu made a special place in the hearts of the viewers, and everyone started connecting with him. He became one of the most-loved actors of the TMKOC and his acting chops were applauded by many. However, after playing the character of Tapu for almost eight years, Bhavy quit the show, and bid adieu to his fans as Tapu. Yes, in 2017, Bhavya decided to move on and bid goodbye to the show, as he felt there was a stagnancy in his character. The young actor wanted to do something different and explore the world of acting.
While, there's no comparison, as each actor has its own magic onscreen, as loyal viewers of TMKOC, many have their own preferences. So we ask, Which actor suits better as Tapu, Bhavya Gandhi or Raj Anadkat? Who do you think fits in the role of Tapu better, Bhavya or Raj? Let us know in the comment section below.
The second wave of COVID 19 has hit the nation badly and a large number of people have been impacted by the virus. Among the numerous people, the Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah actor Bhavya Gandhi has been impacted by it too as he lost his father due to it. His father had tested COVID 19 positive some time ago but he could not survive as the ICU beds could not be arranged in time. Talking to Spotboye, Bhavya Gandhi’s mother Yashoda shared the trouble she had to go through for the treatment of her husband in the present crisis.
She said that about a month ago her husband had got a mild fever, followed by mild chest pain. On taking the test it was found that the infection was only 5%, hence the doctors suggested home isolation with medication after consulting a specialist. But he did not get any relief after two days also. So they got his CT scan and then they realized that the infection had doubled up and they had to admit him to the hospital.
But they were not able to get to any hospital and whenever she was calling, they asked her to register in the BMC and when their number will come, they would call her. After much struggle, she finally found a bed for him in Dadar. He stayed there for 2 days and then the doctors told him that he needed an ICU, which they did not have. They asked her to shift him to another hospital. She made around 500 calls for the ICU bed, finally, a friend of hers was able to arrange a bed for her in a small hospital in Goregaon.
She added that she had to pay extra for the medicines. She said that doctor asked her to arrange a Remdesvir injection and she paid the cost of 8 injections for 6 injections. Then she arranged a Toxin injection, which got imported from Dubai by using a source for which she paid 1 lakh rupees. Then she finally shifted him to Kokilaben, where her husband stayed for 15 days and finally passed away on Tuesday. She said that she had last seen him on April 23 from a far distance as he was unconscious.

Amid the many characters we love, Tapu has to be one of our favorites. Earlier, the character was being played by actor Bhavya Gandhi who left the show after he found his character is not going anywhere. However, looks like he has been in touch with TMKOC's cast, including his on-screen mother, Disha Vakani.
While Disha and Bhavya left the show a few years back, looks like the on-screen mother-son duo is still in touch, even during this hard time. The two formed a strong bond over their time in the shoot over the years and now share an unbreakable bond. Bhavya even said that Disha was very shocked to see him all grown up as he grew his beard.
Bhavya's debut film in Gujarati titled 'Pappa Tamne Nahi Samjaay' has finally been released. The premiere of the movie was held recently and the entire cast of Taarak Mehta ka Ooltah Chashmah attended the event.
Bhavya Gandhi, who played Tapu's character for the longest time in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah told PTI that said his father was under COVID-19 treatment at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital here.
"My father was being treated for COVID-19 for more than a month. Initially, he was in a different hospital but as the case got worse he was admitted to Kokilaben hospital. He passed away yesterday at around 4 pm," Bhavya Gandhi told PTI.
Bhavya's co-star Samay Shah, who plays Gogi on the show penned an emotional poem about his friend's personal loss. He shared the poem on his Instagram story. Take a look:
Bhavya Gandhi started off as a child artiste in the popular sitcom Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. He played Tapu from 2008 to 2017. He has worked on the 2010 release Striker and made his Gujarati film debut in Pappa Tamne Nahi Sanjay. It was released on August 25, 2017. It starred Manoj Joshi, Ketki Dave, and Johny Lever in lead roles.
Bhavya Gandhi, most known for his role as Tappu aka Tipendra Gada in Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has quit the popular daily show to make his debut in Gujarati films and venture into other possibilities.
The 20-year-old actor, who started his journey as a child artist, shared some awful news with his fans on the photo-sharing app, Instagram. He said that his Instagram account has been continuously hacked nearly seven times.
He approached the Mumbai police’s cybercrime department at BKC on Monday to report his hacked social media account. Police suspect that it could be the work of someone from his inner circle of friends.
In his complaint, Bhavya said his Instagram account has been hacked by a person with malicious intent on March 30. Bhavya, who is a commerce student at Mithibai College in Vile Parle, said the act was done by a suspect, identified only as Manav.
Confirming the complaint, Bhavya ‘s mother Yashoda told mid-day, “Bhavya has not been able to access his Instagram account for four days. He learned about it after a few of his friends found his posts on his Instagram account suspicious and informed Bhavya. The hacker is tech-savvy and has been doing this by using multiple email IDs.” She added, “The accused could be a known person. We’ll know about his motive only once he is caught. Bhavya is feeling harassed due to this incident.” The young actor tried to retrieve the account by resetting the password, but the hacker was always a step ahead. The account was hacked seven times!!
After his father's demise, Bhavya shared the complications he faced. Bhavya’s father Vinod Gandhi tested positive for Covid-19 on April 9 and was on proper medication and under doctors’ supervision. He also shared that his father used to take proper care of himself a lot before and after COVID, but he still contradicted the virus. The actor also urged everyone to take utmost care of themselves and take the Covid vaccine. Bhavya also called his father the reason for everything great and good in his life.
Bhavya Gandhi left his fans disappointed when he recently announced his exit from the popular show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, but it seems he had a good reason to take the decision. The popular child actor says his character Tappu was constantly ignored by the makers.
In an interview, Bhavya revealed that he conveyed his displeasure to the makers a lot many times about the way his character was being sidelined, but he failed to get any positive response. “It’s not that I left because the character didn’t have any scope. It has a lot of potentials but it wasn’t given much scope… It was ignored. I spoke to the makers a lot of times. But like you all saw, I was hardly seen in the episodes so that was pretty much the outcome of our meetings,” the actor said.
Bhavya, who was a part of the show since its inception in 2008, wants to, now, grow as an actor and he believes this was the right time to bid adieu to the popular sitcom. “I know right now I can explore myself as an actor. This is the age to grow, so, I thought I should move beyond this character. I will now be seen on the big screen and I am hopeful I will be received with love in films the way I was on the small screen.”
Bhavya has shot for his debut Gujarati film, which has been directed by Dharmesh Mehta, the man behind the first 500 episodes of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. The movie, which is about a father-son relationship, will see Bhavya play the son of veteran actor Manoj Joshi. “We have finished shooting for the film. Only a few songs are left to be shot. The film should release in May. Manoj Joshi plays my father, while Ketki Dave will be seen as my mother.”
When asked if he has quit the small screen and will only be seen in movies now, the actor said, “I will just do good work regardless of the medium. Whether it is cinema, television, or the web, I will go where I get good content. That’s my focus.”
