As they say, a person who portrays a specific character on silver screen, often connects with that character in real life. It might be true for most of the actors but not for some, who are totally different in their real lives, as compared to their reel life.

In this post, the team of Funniest Indian has compiled a list of 7 such actors who are very different from their reel life. They differ not only in terms of appearance but also character and other real life aspects.


Here Are Those 7 Actors:

1- Popat Lal(Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma)


Unlike in the serial where Popat Lal is still finding his lady love, Shyam Pathak aka Popatlal Pandey is married in real life and has 2 beautiful children. He is married to Reshami who was also his classmate at the National School of Drama.

2- Lord Krishna(Mahabharata)

Saurabh Raj Jain, who portrayed Lord Krishna in the new Mahabharata, is not Kanhaiya in real life and is settled with his wife Riddhima with whom he has two twins.

3- Bhagha(Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma)

Tanmay Vekaria, who plays the funny and extremely slow Bhagha on Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma is a dashing dude in real life and is totally different from his on screen character.

4- Rosesh Sarabhai

Actor Rajesh Kumar, who plays the dumb mama’s boy Rosesh Sarabhai on the iconic Sarabhai vs Sarabhai, is a totally different personality in real life. Unlike on the show, where he is shown to be dumb and highly immature, he is quite a man in real life.

5- Eijaz Khan

The village man in Moh Moh Ke Dhage, is a dashing hunk in real life and has no village trait. He was in fact dating Canadian singer Natalie Di Luccio some time back.

6- Mona Singh

How can we forget Mona Singh from ‘Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin’? Although the show is no longer on air, it was perhaps the best transformation of a character on reel life. We loved that show and the positive vibe Jassi bought. 

7- Dayabhen Gada(Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma)

Disha Vasani, who plays Daya Bhen Gada in Tarak Mehta Ka Oolatah Chashma, is quite different in real life. She is not the typical housewife as portrayed on the show and is in fact quite glamorous in real life.
