Yes, you heard it right!
A close source informs Telly Buzz, "Few of the children from Bhavya Gandhi's school who love Tappu a lot insist on going bald. About five of them actually went bald recently in a quest to look like their idol".
To know more we contacted Bhavya Gandhi who said, "Yes, you are right, five of my friends have gone bald because I did it for the show. When I told them that I did so for one of the requirements on the show, they said they want to look as cute as I look now (smiles)".
Producer Asit Modi is simply taken aback seeing certain reactions in the normal public about Tappu going bald. "It's really funny. I have been getting calls from parents asking how to dissuade their kids from getting their heads shaved off. They are taking it as a fashion statement and some of them want to do so to give support to Tappu. Serials today can really influence viewers and that is why we are so careful with our storyline. We keep sending social messages out to them in a comical manner and never create negative influence".
Wow!! This really speaks volumes about the fan following that Tappu and the show generate!!
