While netizens celebrate Social Media Day every day, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’s Gokuldham-vaasis also celebrated social media day in their own unique way on Twitter.
In an interesting twitter banter, Aatmaram Bhide tweeted his suvichar - thought for the day, “Aaj ka suvichaar: Social media ke madhyam se baat karo, sahi jaankari do aur ek dusre ko protsahit karo!” (The thought for the day: Interact, Enlighten and Motivate through Social Media) while everyone from Gokuldham society interacted with the same.
Jethalal replied to the tweet with, “Arey Bhide! Kya baat hai bhai… aagaya aapko bhi repeater use karne,” to which Gogi prompts, “Aare Jetha uncle! Repeater nahi, TWITTER!!”
Popatlal said, Waah Bhide! Yeh toh bahut acha suvichaar hai, social media ka sahi upyog hi karna chahiye sabko,” ending the tweet with his iconic lines, “Cancel. Cancel. Cancel,” while Dr. Hathi wittily replied with a GIF, “Sahi Baat Hai.”
This was followed by a frenzy of replies to Bhide’s official Twitter account including Babita tweeting, “Very nice, Bhide bhai! Aur humein social media par afvayen bhi nahi phailani chahiye.”
The creative visionary behind the character universe, Asit Kumarr Modi, was also seen interacting with all of Gokuldham. The tweets have been trending on social media.
