The character of Jethalal belongs to a Gujarati family and therefore depicts the happenings of a Gujarati family. You too hail from a Gujarati origin. Is it because of this reason that you have an easy grasp of the character? Yes! That is obvious. I am a typical Gujarati and therefore I am accustomed to speaking the language and acting like a Gujarati. I think the character connects to the people based on the acknowledgements that I have received from our viewers.
