Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has been in the news for a long time. The show completed 12 years recently and also became the second Hindi GEC to have completed 3000 episodes. However, just before that two actors from the show left. Yes, we are talking about Neha Mehta and Gurucharan Singh. Neha Mehta played Anjali Mehta in the show and has now been replaced by Sunayana Fozdar. Neha Mehta has been with the show since the first episode and did well. However, now, as per reports in ETimes, Neha Mehta wanted to return to the show after quitting the show. Neha spoke about the same and said, "Yes, that happened. I wanted to consider my return. But I want certain decorum and conduct to change on the set. Majority and pressure work in today's times but then, I shouldn't be looking into that and spoil my mind."

She was asked whether she feels there was Groupism against her on sets. She said, "Sometimes, and on some matters, silence is the best answer. I am not here to say that I was a victim of competition, jealousy, power games, and a pinch of ego that makes people blind. If I do, I would be playing into their hands. I have received immense adulation from people, millions must be getting inspired by me. My responsibility says I can't say things to inspire wrongly. Plus, if you dig into the details, nobody will admit that he/she is wrong." She also spoke about the rumors of her leaving the show earlier as well. She said, "That's not true. With great respect to my producer (Asit Modi), it is not that baar baar humko waapas laya gaya. In fact, it was the other way round. It was a case of 'sher aaya, sher aaya'. You know the rule here - 'Aapko Karna hai to Karo Warna Chhod doh'. it came to a point where I felt that I should stop here. All said and done with all the ifs and buts, a show is a teamwork and everyone contributes to it. But apart from this fact, I hold a lot of respect and status in the field of acting as I have done a lot of work in the entertainment world even before Taarak Mehta ka Ooltah Chashmah happened to me. It's not only Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah that makes me a celebrity, I am a celebrity who's doing Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. Being an educated and sensible person, I had to think. The show was something that was giving me regular work and earnings. Few things happen everywhere and you have to make peace with yourself. Did I not think that way? Of course, I did. But still, I felt that this was the time that I needed to stop and I was taking the correct step."

She also said that it was her father who asked her to reconsider the show. She said, "That's right. Even I respect Asit Modi a lot… I have the same regard for all the producers whose shows I have done to date. I said 'Sir, this is it. If this is the thing that we want to negotiate and talk about, it is fine'. And what then if you are told that you have to handle certain ego issues but if you want to go, you should still go because I have someone else whom I can hire, who is a better prospect for me as I have to pay him lesser? It could happen to anybody. So I am gracefully moving on."

After playing the role of Anjali Mehta for a period of 12 years, television actress Neha Mehta quit the popular sitcom Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. While Gurucharan Singh Sodhi left the show due to his father's ailing health, the reason for Neha's ouster was not known to anyone. While it was speculated that she opted out due to creative issues, the reality seems to be different. 

According to an entertainment portal, the actress was apparently facing some hurdles from the production side and she was reportedly unhappy with the way an actress of her caliber was being treated on the sets of the show.

"Neha had communicated and raised some issues with the production around February this year, however, her grievances were turned deaf ears. Hence, post lockdown, with no solution in place, she decided to opt-out of the show to uphold her integrity," a source close to the development informed Pinkvilla.

Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah recently underwent a cast change when actor  Sunanya Fozdar had to step in for Neha Mehta, who played Anjali on the show. Now, producer Asit Kumar Modi has revealed that Neha had expressed her desire to return to the show but “the replacement has been made”.

Asit has said Anjali wanted to try different things and had tried to address her concerns. However, he added, “If someone does not wish to be a part, there’s nothing I can do.”

Turning down her request to be rehired, Asit told DNA in an interview, “But everything is done now, the replacement has been made. The artist who has been brought in does a good job. It is not possible to remove someone once cast.”

Explaining how it was Neha who had expressed her desire to quit, he said, “We started the shoot on 10th July. Anjali Mehta sent us a letter in April or May where she mentioned that doing the show is difficult for her. After that, we tried to contact her a lot. But she didn’t revert back till 10th August.”

Neha had confirmed her exit in a farewell note on Instagram, which she later deleted. She’d written, “Hello everyone, and thank you for everything. I’ve worked 12 amazing years at this amazing show (Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah), and I am forever thankful for the beautiful career I’ve had. To my amazing respected Asit Kumar Modi Ji, co-stars, and Tmkoc's whole team, I appreciate the hard work you’ve done completing some of our beautiful journeys. I’ve never had so much fun before. I am so glad to be part of this show, but I will miss the spontaneity of the work and the generosity of such brilliant colleagues. Thank you again and all the best for the future. The show must go on.”

TV actress  Sunayana Fozdar will soon be entering the popular sitcom  Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah Taarak's wife aka the new  Anjali. She has replaced  Neha Mehta, who played the character for 12 years. The actress is super excited and at the same time a bit nervous. In an exclusive chat with ETimes TV, Sunayana shared that the feeling of being part of Taarak Mehta... has still not sunk in and also talked about the pressure of replacing Neha Mehta.
"Honestly, the feeling has still not sunk in. Everyone is so excited that it is a big show, I mean many of us have grown up watching it. But I am going through some other feelings right now. Sailesh Lodha Ji and everyone else have been on the show for 12 years, honestly, there is a bit of happiness, excitement, and mixed emotions. The feeling has not yet sunk that I am part of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. I am stressed more than I hope people like me. Even the previous Anjali aka Neha Mehta, was on the show for 12 years so it's not like I am replacing a new character. I want her fans also to accept me and I know it is going to be challenging. I feel it is a responsibility. I am unable to digest the fact that I am part of this show. When the news came out in the media about me doing the show overnight people started messaging, and mailing me if I am doing the show. I was a bit nervous and there is this pressure that I hope they like me. Even though I have done so many shows, I'm not one of those types that Oh listen, this is very easy for me. I don't have that overconfidence. I have always been a learner. A first day on the sets for me is still like the first show for me. Right now the priority for me is to get a grip on the show. So, that's the only feeling I am getting," she said.

Talking about the pressure of replacing Neha Mehta in the show, who has been part of the popular sitcom for 12 years, the actress said, "For me, it is completely new ground, so it's natural to feel pressurized. But from Asit sir and the production house, there has been no pressure, in fact, they have been more than welcoming. They always say don't take stress, be relaxed. Sailesh Ji has been really sweet and supportive because my first scene was with him. Our director was also supportive and asked me to chill and have fun. But, yes I am feeling the pressure because Neha was so good and people love her, now I have to make sure that people love me also. She has been part of the show and I barely have been part of the show for 12 hours. So, there's a certain pressure but with it, I feel I will get certain energy to prove my talent. I feel the pressure is sometimes good because it pushes you to perform better and not become laid back about your work. I will not get lazy and will give my 100 percent to the role. I look at it in a positive way, I know people love the show and I want them to love me also."

Sunayana also spoke about shooting during a pandemic and feels blessed to be getting to work during such a challenging situation. She calls the role a blessing from Ganpati Bappa, "The production house is doing their best. I can see them sanitizing our clothes, and makeup rooms 10 times a day. We see it ourselves. There is a steam machine kept for each actor so that whenever you are free you can use it. Since it is an airborne virus there is a little bit of nervousness. Secondly, I am going on the new set also as I am stepping out of my house, so yes there's a slight nervousness. I want to still be grateful that even during a time like this I am getting work. This is a critical and challenging time for the entire world so during this pandemic if we are getting it is good. I have Ganpati Bappa at home every year and I feel that Bappa has blessed me. I started shooting on the second day of Ganesh Chaturthi and the day I booked the Ganpati Bappa I was offered the show. I take this as a blessing from him. I would like to believe in the universal blessing," she said.

The actress, who has been a part of some of the popular shows on the small screen like Qubool Hai, Laagi Tujhse Lagan, Left Right Left, Ek Rishta Saajhedaari Ka, and Santana shared about her family's reaction to her bagging the show, "I had not informed my family that I was doing the show. They got to know from the news articles. I was nervous about whether the shooting would start or not. They were very happy and excited to see me in the show. They love all the characters, be it Jethalal, Dayaben, Anjali, Taarak, everyone and they know all of them better than me. They knew the show better than I did. Each and every character, they knew and they were telling me about each one of them. But seeing me controlling my excitement they were also kind of confused about whether to celebrate or not. I am a person who likes to first see the result and then celebrate so the celebrations are put on hold in my family. So, they are waiting for the telecast," said Sunayana.

When asked if she was excited to shoot with Dilip Joshi and Mahila Mandal, she said, "Till now I haven't shot with Dilip Joshi sir. Since there is this pandemic they are not calling all actors together. They are not shooting all combination scenes like how earlier they used to. So, all my scenes so far have been only with Taarak aka Jethalal. They are taking all the precautions. Of course, I am waiting to learn from everyone be it, Sailesh Ji. He has been doing the show for 12 years. He is a one-take actor, it's a learning experience to see him performing those scenes. I am looking forward and excited to doing scenes with everyone, in the Mahila Mandal, I want to meet all of them. I hope things get better gradually and we all get to meet. With time I think God willing everything will get better. More than anything I feel I am going to watch Jetha Ji more as a fan and less as a co-actor."

I will only consider a comeback to Taarak Mehta… if the audiences, production house, and channel want me. And after quitting the show, I have never called the producer or expressed my wish to return. My first priority will always be the audience and viewers who have given me love and respect all these years. I don’t know how these talks have surfaced.”

I want to stand for what I truly believe in and therefore I quit the show. I don’t want to create a negative situation, so I have maintained a dignified silence. I don’t believe in proving to anyone or explaining the reason for my quitting. I want to continue doing good karma with God’s blessings.
