It was the dawn of July 28, 2008, that India got the first glimpse of its longest-running sitcom.
The sitcom is hugely popular among masses and the characters of the show enjoy a huge fan following particularly the character of Jetha Laal played by the supremely talented Dilip Joshi.
It will be safe to say that the show enjoys the same popularity in India F.R.I.E.N.D.S enjoyed in its time in the whole wide world, though F.R.I.E.N.D.S can never be compared with the ongoing show as F.R.I.E.N.D.S is one of the most talked about thing in pop culture but we can definitely try doing something imaginative, right?
So, here we have thought of how F.R.I.E.N.D.S would look like if it had the cast of Taarak Mehta ka Ooltah Chasmah :-
1). Jetha Lal as Chandler Bing
Chandler Bing is the god of sarcasm, this character can totally slice you up with words without you knowing it and same is the case with Jetha Lal, remember how he brings in quirky punchlines to insult his brother in law or his neighbour Iyyer. So, Jetha would be near perfect to play our desi, Chandler Bing.
2). Babita as Rachel
Rachel is the fashionista of the show, she is someone guys swoon over and boy she is pretty badass when it comes to trolling people, remember the Unagi thing, yea you sure do if you are a die-hard fan of the show just like me. Babita would be perfect to play Rachel, well, for obvious reason, *sigh*.
3). Dr. Haathi as Joey
What did Joey love the most? No, it is not sex, I said the most! Yea, now you got it right, it was food. And, Dr.Haathi looks like the buffed up version of Joey but we can manage that as long as his obsession with food doesn’t get over, he will be our Joey.
4). Iyyer as Ross
What is the common thing between Iyyer and Ross? Yes, Science! They both are associated with science in some or the other way and love to do things in a systematic manner, so, voila! We’ve got our Ross.
5). Maadhvi as Monica
Monica loved cooking and household chores, she also had an OCD about cleanliness, so, need I say more why Maadhvi is perfect to play Monica.
6). Dayaben as Phoebe
Phoebe was crazy, her antics made all of us rolling on the floor laughing. Now, who do you think has such crazy antics in TMKOC, it is no one but Dayaben, plus Daya loves to sing and dance as well (mostly in garba nights, though).
7). Abdul as Gunther
Well, it is very obvious, in F.R.I.E.N.D.S , there was a coffee shop but in TMKOC there is a soda shop, In F.R.I.E.N.D.S there was Gunther and in TMKOC there is Abdul.
8). Baaga as Janice
Recalled that annoying laughter that gave us nightmares? Well, Baaga’s laughter is not that annoying but it surely tests our anger management skills so the honour to play Janice goes to Bagga.
