‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ is one of the most popular and longest-running shows on Indian television. Of late, the comedy sitcom has been making headlines owing to actors quitting the show after years of playing the character. Recently, Shailesh Lodha, who played Taarak Mehta in the show, bid goodbye to TMKOC. His exit indeed came as a big shock to everyone. After his exit, producer Asit Kumarr Modi took a jibe at Shailesh saying that no matter what the show will go on.
Now it seems like Shailesh Lodha has hit back at Asit’s dig at him. On Tuesday, he posted a photo of a chameleon aka Girgit alongside a poem where he talked about how people change very fast like chameleons. Lodha also said that these days’ people who change color are not called chameleons, they are called human beings. Soon after he shared the post, many netizens felt that Shailesh’s post was directed toward Asit Kumarr. One fan commented, “Indirectly Asid Modi.” Another said, “Yeh poem Asit modi ke liye tha vaise.” ALSO READ: Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah Fame Shailesh Lodha Enjoys Fans Company; Here’s What ‘Taaral Mehta’ Is Upto After Exiting The Show!

A few days ago, a video of Asit Modi talking about Shailesh's exit from the show went viral on social media. In the clip, the producer mentioned that some people wanted to leave the show simply because they didn't want to confine themselves to TMKOC and explore more options. Modi added that he and the whole team of the show will welcome if old Taarak Mehta wants to return or else they will look out for a new actor to play Taarak Mehta in the show.
