The Indian television sitcom Taarak Mehta Ka Oolta Chashma has been hit with allegations of unfair treatment towards its actors. Priya Ahuja, who played the character of Rita the reporter, is the latest former actor to speak out against the show’s makers. Ahuja claims that while she was never mistreated by the show’s producer Asid Modi or fellow actors Sohil Ramani and Jatin Bajaj, she was treated unfairly when it came to work. Ahuja says that after her director husband left the show, she was clueless about her character’s path and received no response when she tried to seek an explanation from the makers.
In addition to Ahuja, other former actors have come forward with similar allegations. Shailesh Lodha accused the show’s makers of delaying his fees, while Jennifer Mistry Pansiwal alleged that both the production team and creator Asid Kumar Modi were being harassed. Monica Patoria, who plays the character of Bavry, also shed light on the struggles of being an actor on the show. Patoria went on to suggest that Modi may have mistreated Disha Vakani, who played the character of Dayaben and has been absent from the show since 2017.
Ahuja also recounted instances where Modi made sexist comments towards her. She claims that Modi told her “Malav is earning, then why should you bother? You enjoy life like a queen.” Ahuja says that despite serving the team for 14 years, she was not given basic respect by the makers. Ahuja recently made a comeback to TV screens with Starplus’ Come Hai Kisike Pyaar Mein.
The allegations against Taarak Mehta Ka Oolta Chashma have sparked controversy and shed light on the behind-the-scenes struggles of actors in the Indian television industry. While some former actors have spoken out against the show’s makers, others have chosen to remain silent. The situation is ongoing, and it remains to be seen what actions, if any, will be taken in response to the allegations.
