Over the last few months, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah producer Asit Kumarr Modi has been making the headlines for his mistreatments of actors who have worked on the show for over a decade. Recently, Jennifer Mistry Bansiwal, who essayed the role of Mrs. Roshan Singh Sodhi’s, sexual harassment allegations against the producers opened up a can of worms. Following her example, actresses Priya Ahuja Rajda and Monika Bhadoriya had opened up about the injustice they and other female actors had to face at the hands of Modi and his team.
Now, during a recent interaction, Priya, who is married to TMKOC ex-director Malav Rajda, expressed her shock that not many of their co-stars spoke up in support of Jennifer. Not only did she confirm that the actress was never abusive or indisciplined on the sets, like the makers had accused in their official statement, she revealed Jennifer was very loved by all their co-stars.

Quoted by Hindustan Times, the actress told ETimes, “I’m very shocked nobody supported Jennifer as she had many close friends on the set of the show. She was the one who was there with me during my depression days. I can confirm that she was never abusive or indisciplined on the sets of the show.” ALSO READ: Ghanshyam Nayak Was Also HARASSED On Sets Of 'Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah' Reveals Jennifer Mistry; Says ‘Nattu Kaka Ko Bhi Bohot Pareshan Kiya Gaya Hai’
While Priya and Monika have extended their support to Jennifer, most of the actors from the show have refrained from commenting on the matter altogether.
For the unversed, the incident that urged Jennifer to take action against the makers of the show happened on March 7. She had informed the makers earlier that she wanted a half day as it was her wedding anniversary and Holi and her daughter was really excited to celebrate the day with her. However, instead of letting her leave, project head Sohail Ramani and executive producer Jatin Bajaj threatened her. According to recent reports, Mumbai police is investigating the complaint of sexual harassment filed by Jennifer against producer Asit Kumarr Modi.
