Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah Update January 10: Popat refuses to let Bhide repair his almirah in the society complex

In the last episode of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah , Madhavi calls Bhide and asks him to open the almirah since she is unable to. He tries hard but ends up breaking the door. Madhavi tells him they need to replace the old one. Even Sonu joins them and suggests they should buy a new almirah. Bhide refuses to listen to them and tells them he’d get it repaired.

Suddenly, 00everyone in the society hears drumbeats. They come to the balcony and find Sodhi , Roshan and Gogi in a jovial mood. Sodihi calls all of them in the compound. When they arrive, he announces that he’s leaving for his hometown to celebrate Lohri. The society residents are thrilled for him and ask him to get them gifts from Punjab. Finally, Sodhi and his family go to the airport.

Later, the carpenters arrive to fix the cupboard at Bhide’s place. They praise the quality of wood used in it and assure Bhide it would be as good as new. They decide to repair it in the house. But Madhavi objects to it. She feels it will make the house messy and the smell of the glue will spread everywhere. The carpenters offer to take it in the society’s compound to repair it. Madhavi agrees to it.

Since the almirah is too heavy to carry, Bhide calls Popat for help. They drag the almirah downstairs. When they reach the compound, Popat meets them and learns of the situation. Iyer and Dr Hathi join them too. Popat tells Bhide that he won’t let him repair the cupboard in society’s compound since it’s personal work. He asks him to get permission from the society residents for it. Popat also reminds Bhide of the time he didn’t let him dry his mattresses in the compound, citing personal work wasn’t allowed without permission. Bhide decides to write an application letter for the same. He suggests Dr Hathi and Iyer to sign it. But Popat tells him he should get the permission from everyone. This irks Bhide and he doesn’t know how to convince Popat to let him get done with the work.
