Our 2000s were raging for two reasons- the cool bell bottoms and our obsession with Mr Gangadhar Tipare. More on the latter, over a decade ago, Zee Marathi unleashed this cult figure in the world through the show, Shriyut Gangadhar Tipare. This iconic role was subtlely reprised yet again by the same actor, Dilip Prabhavalkar in Zala Bobhata.

Through the setting of a middle-class family, the popular show made every situation relatable to the audience. The protagonist, Gangadhar Tipare’s role was essayed by the legendary actor who wore the signature wig and soda glasses. So, when we watched Zala Bobhata on ZEE5, it made us break into a happy dance when we saw him in Appa’s character. With those huge spectacles, he reminded of the wise Aba from Shriyut Gangadhar Tipare.
