One of the most famous comedy shows at the television is no doubt Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain. The show has a huge fan following among the audiences. Every character in this serial has his own flavor. Be it Saxena, Happu Singh or Angoori Bhabi everyone has their unique style of making the audience laugh. One such character who has his own charm and is also awarded as The Magnetic Voice is Tillu played by Salim Zaidi. The team of Cinetales visited the set of Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain at Naigaon and had exclusive talks with various artists.
Start Of Acting Career
Salim Zaidi started his career from a role of Jahangir in a theatre. He told
The appreciation I got after playing that character made me think that I have an actor inside me.
While doing theatre, I didn’t have to wait long for a big break. I got Bhaag Milkha Bhaag while doing theatre only. After Bhaag Milkha Bhaag I have decided to relocate to Mumbai. Yes, there was an initial struggle at Mumbai. Then, I have got an ad of Kaun Banega Crorepati with Amitabh Bachchan which was directed by Nitesh Tiwari. After that, I got many ad commercials.
How Salim Zaidi Become Tillu
I have got a break on a serial Jeanie aur Juju directed by Rajan Waghdhare. Then he recommended me for the character Tillu for Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain. In the initial episodes, I was having a different voice for this character. But then director Shashank Bali told to do something different and I came with this different accent. This also gave me the award for Magnetic Voice.
Zero Made Salim Zaidi Hero
While discussion with Praneet Samaiya, Salim told, I was playing cricket in Delhi. I played with Piyush Chawla for North Zone. When selectors were sitting, I got out on duck. I again worked hard for an entire year and then again when selectors came, I got out on Zero. Then someone wrote about me, Zero made me Hero.
If I was not, got out on Zero, I would have not made it to theatres and also would not made it to Bhabiji.
Salim Zaidi Is Engaged
Salim himself told that he lost his mother in his childhood and father almost a year back. He told,
My sister found a gorgeous princess for me who hails from Delhi. Most probably in April, I will be married.
