In the last few months, multiple artists of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah have decided to quit the show. According to the reports, the reason is producer, Asit Kumarr Modi’s exclusive contract where the stars of the show cannot work with any other show or channel till they are a part TMKOC. The latest name to quit the show is Shailesh Lodha aka Taarak Mehta himself.
Both Asit and Shailesh have kept tight-lipped on the matter but Asit Kumarr Modi shared a video where he finally broke his silence on Shailesh’s exit from the show and stated how he wants to keep everyone in the team together but if someone wants to leave the show to explore more opporunites he would urge them to give it another thought. He said, “Dekhiye jaise maine pehle bhi kaha hai, mai sabko sath me jod ke rakhna chahta hu. Lekin agar koi log ana hi nahi chahte, unka pet bhar gaya ho, unko lagta ho humne bohot kuch kar lia, aur kuch karna chahiye, humko sirf TMKOC tak seemit nahi rehna, wo nahi samajhna chahte, mai fir bhi unko kehta hu ki bhai sochiye samajhiye. Lekin agar nahi aayenge toh, jarur, show rukega nahi.”
In the past few years, pivotal characters of the show including Disha Vakani, Gurcharan Singh, and Neha Mehta among others have quit the show.
