Sitcom Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has been at the top of the charts for years in a row and many of its characters, both original and superseded, hold a special place in the hearts of audiences. Even though the show took a long hiatus during the coronavirus-induced lockdown, many of the show’s characters have remained favorites with viewers and it wouldn’t be wrong to say that over the years the popularity of the series and actors have multiplied.
One of those characters is Tapu of Tapu Sena fame, a role fantastically played by Bhavya Gandhi for several years before leaving the series.
Recently, in an interview, Bhavya cleared the air about reports that he was fired from the show due to unprofessional behavior. He bluntly refuted accusations that his unprofessional behavior led to his being ousted from the show.
Dismissing reports that his “unprofessional behavior” led to leaving, in an interaction with The The Bharat Express News, Bhavya said, “I don’t care if I let them say what they want to say. I know the truth I know I am who I am. Let people think, I don’t care. “
Mentioning that the real reason he left the show was his desire to explore and learn new things, Bhayva told the portal, “Because at one point in Taarak, I was just doing something, which was just monotonous. i just do something constantly, i just come over there everyday, do that, do that and then pack my bags, chalo ghar, and that’s been going on for a long time. i said it was monotony and I didn’t know how to handle it, I had no idea. I didn’t know what to do about it. So my parents and I had a conversation, even Asit (Modi) sir (producer of the show), the directors, everyone … everyone that’s connected to me – it’s almost the set, everyone knew I was leaving and I was talking to them about what I should do and what that I shouldn’t do. “
He added, “I weighed all the ifs and buts, what to do, and then eventually I came to this conclusion that maybe I want to go out to explore, learn new things, and yet I don’t. did not succeed. “
Conversely, Bhavya left the show after working for over 8 years on it. He was replaced by Raj Anadkat, a 19-year-old boy based in Bombay.
