Samay Shah alias Gogi of Tarak Mehta… is not a Punjabi munda… but a Gujarati chokra
The little kid Samay Shah portrays the role of the exuberant and lively Punjabi munda Gogi to the 'T' in Neela Telefilms' Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah on SAB TV. But not many know that Samay is actually a Gujarati boy.
Talking about it, Samay's mother tells us, "Samay looks very different with a pagdi when compared to his real life look. The minute he removes his Pagdi he is my son Samay again (smiles). Otherwise, he is very much a Gujarati boy who talks in Gujarati at home and plays with friends and his sisters".
The boy was only seven months old when he started his career in the entertainment industry with ads. Apart from Taarak Mehta, Samay has been seen in shows like Balika Vadhu and SAB TV's Gilli Gilli Gappa. On the big screen, Samay has been part of movies like Action Replayy and Karzzzz.
On balancing between work and studies, Samay's mother avers, "He started to act very early and the only reason he is able to continue with TV and films is his school. His school St. Joseph's High School and his principal Alvira D'Souza have been very co-operative when it comes to his studies".
Samay, you are indeed superb as Gogi..
