Dilip Joshi, who plays the major character in the show, has also appeared in several Bollywood blockbusters in supporting parts. Jethalal, the character played by the actor, rose him to the higher stairs of popularity overnight.

Jethalal - Dilip Joshi

He is widely regarded as the show’s biggest fan-pulling or TRP-pulling character because of his funny way of speaking and unique comedic style. You always saw him as a funny middle-aged man but do you know he looks so handsome at his young age.

2. Ambika Ranjankar as Komal Hathi

I am absolutely sure that once you saw our funny chubby Komal’s young age’s picture, you will definitely not recognize her.

Dr. Haathi’s wife and his co-star, Ambika, have left us speechless with her youthful beauty. With a white outfit and excessive jewellery, the actress is no longer identifiable in this picture.

3. Mandar Chandwadkar as Aatmaram Tukaram Bhide

Although he is most known as the Gokuldham Society’s secretary and teacher, his remarkable personality still manages to win people over. It’s impossible not to be shocked by the photographs of this actor. The actor, who is now bald, used to have a lot of hair when he was younger, and his appearance has changed dramatically over time.

4. Shyam Pathak as Popatlal Pandey

I think this character is quite different from other characters. The actor’s humorous attempts to find a bride for himself are one of the most beloved segments from the series, even though he constantly depressing himself because he couldn’t find his love of life despite making many attempts.

But if you look at his young age’s picture, you will definitely be confused about how anyone can reject him. Having the exact physical shape without a moustache and spectacles, with dense hairs on his head, the actor’s youthful image is nostalgic and mesmerizing.

5. Mistry Bansiwal as Roshan Bhabhi

In TMKOC, she played the role of Roshini Bhabhi, which made her a celebrity. As the mother of Gogi, this actress’s style hasn’t changed much since she was a youngster.

Over the years, this actress hasn’t changed much. She still wears her hair short and maintains the same style. Definitely, she is one of the characters of TMKOC who is quite natural not only in her acting but also in her appearance.

6. Disha Vakani as Daya

Disha Vakani, the star of this show, is one of the series’ most popular actresses. A leading actress in the television industry, Disha is known for her humorous performances and unique speaking manner, especially her Gujarati speaking.  I love the way how she dresses and decorated her with the two usual pleats with Gajra. She looks so gorgeous even without having lots of makeup.

In her childhood, the actress looked like this.

7. Munmun Dutta as Babita

This attractive actress has become a significant attraction for the residents of the Gokuldham society and Jethalal in the show. The actress’s enchanting beauty has not only captured the performers but also the public. Her childhood photographs, in which she plays the harmonium, are a clear indication of her adorableness.

8. Sonalika Joshi as Madhavi Bhide

With her role as Mandar Chandwadkar’s wife in the show, Sonalika rose to prominence. As of the commencement of this serial, she has not been in any other programme or film. Gokuldham society members consider her pickles and papads to be among the most delectable dishes in the world.

The way she smiles today is the same as she smiled when she was young. You don’t believe me? Look at her picture; you will definitely recognize that she is Madhavi, only by looking at her smile.

9. Nirmal Soni as Dr. Haathi

Nirmal Soni is well-known for his role as Dr. Haathi in the show TMKOC, which has entertained viewers to a large extent. We’ve also come across a picture of this actor as a youngster.

I can assure you that by looking at his young age’s picture, you are also saying that he looks so adorable and hasn’t altered much in terms of appearance.

10. Shailesh Lodha as Taarak Mehta

Last but not least, actor Shailesh Lodha plays the role of real-life columnist Taarak Mehta in the serial. Shailesh’s remarkable speech delivery and acting have captured the hearts of millions, and this is how the actor used to appear when he was younger.

But I think his young features resemble Kapil Dev’s young age features? Am I the only one who thinks this, or are there other people who think that also?
