Television's famous comedy serial 'Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah' has been entertaining the audience for a long time. People know each and every character of this show very well. Then whether it is Jethalal or Atmaram-Tukaram clash. Today we will tell you about Mandar Chandwadkar who plays the character of Atmaram and about his on-screen wife means Sonalika.
Mandar and Sonalika have been a part of the longest-running sitcom for over 13 years. Some people even say that this couple is a couple in real life too, but it is not so. More than their original names, the duo is better known as Atmaram Bhide and Madhavi Bhide. One can hardly imagine any other actress to replace Sonalika to play the character of Madhavi and the reason for this is their chemistry. But did you know that there is a bigger secret that brings this kind of on-screen tuning in between Mandar Chandwadkar and Sonalika Joshi? And that secret is that both of them played on-screen husband-wife even before they got involved in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. Yes, both Mandar and Sonalika played a Marathi couple in the TV show 'Parivartan'.
You will be surprised to know that Sonalika was the first to call for Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah and Mandar was given the role of Mr Bhide only after Sonalika spoke. Mandar also did complete justice to his character and his style of speaking is still very much liked by the audience. The audience also likes the pairing of Madhavi and Atmaram.
