Popular ‘Gori Mem’ from ‘Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hain’ Saumya Tandon has finally revealed that she’ll be saying good-bye to the show. Saumya has been playing the role of Anita Bhabhi aka modern bhabhi in the show from last 5 years. Audience has always loved her performance and enjoyed her character in the show always.
Now, in conversation with BT, she confirmed and said that she has decided not to continue her contract further. Friday will be her last day of shoot. She also said, “Finally, people can stop speculating whether I will continue on the show or not.”
At the time, when work opportunities are less, when asked what made her take this decision, she said, “Well, you can say that it’s an impractical decision to quit a stable job, that too, in an established show. But, I realised that being employed and earning a regular income was not exciting enough any more.” She further added that she wants to do project where she can grow as an artiste.
“Having said that, it does not mean that ‘Bhabi Ji…’ did not contribute to my growth, I had a beautiful journey on the show. However, I have played this character for five years now, and I don’t see myself doing it for another five years,” said Saumya.
Saumya refuted the rumors of her leaving the show because of coronavirus pandemis and subsequent pay cut and said that leaving Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hain wasn’t an impulsive decision. Tho she got worried after her hairdresser was tested positive and she didn’t want to put her elderly mother and one-and-a-half-year-old son at risk. The actress says, “But, I have completed my notice period. My producers (Sanjay and Binaifer Kohli) were very co-operative and I have a great rapport with them. They have been great producers and respect them a lot. As far as pay cut is concerned, in these times, people have to accept that the economy has been hit. I am not leaving the show because of monetary reasons”
The audience is in love with Saumya’s performance, so now let’s see how the audience will respond to her new replacement!
