Produced by Asit Kumarr Modi, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has been making the headlines for all the wrong reasons. From Shailesh Lodha making allegations about impending payments against the makers to actresses like Jennifer Mistry Bansiwal, Monika Bhadoriya and Priya Ahuja Rajda accusing the makers of mental and physical harassment, the netizens were shocked as many requested the producer to shut the show. The bad publicity around the show reached new heights when after teasing Dayaben’s return on the show, the makers did not fulfill their promise like usual. This led to the fans trending Boycott TMKOC on social media. Now amid it all they have introduced a new Mrs Roshan Sodhi.
As the makers introduced Monaz Mevawalla as Mrs Roshan Singh Sodhi, Bansiwal who previously played the character penned a heartfelt goodbye to the show. Expressing her gratitude for getting a chance of being a part of the serial for more than a decade she shared a compilation of photos with the cast. Taking to Instagram, she wrote that her journey with TMKOC has three parts, when she first joined in 2008, when she rejoined after her delivery in 2016, and when she left the show in 2023. She went on to add, “Spent 1/3rd of my life - 1& 1/2 decades in this serial… pata hee nahi chala waqt kaise beet gaya… Some memories are painful, some are not... but after all they are memories...” ALSO READ: Jennifer Mistry's SHOCKING Revelations About TMKOC’s Production Team; Says, ‘Wore Same Costume For 20 Days Straight, Vanity Vans Had Cockroaches’
