Saumya Tandon who is best known for her show ‘Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain‘ confirmed that she has quit the show. Speaking to Bombay Times, she revealed that she will be shooting the last episode on Friday. Saumya who has been a part if the show since its inception plays the lead role of Anita Mishra. It also features Asif Sheikh, Rohitash Gaud and Shubhangi Atre.
Yes, I have decided to not renew my contract further. Tomorrow (August 21) is my last day of shoot. Finally, people can stop speculating whether I will continue on the show or not.
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 anymore.
I want to do projects where there is scope for growth as an artiste. Having said that, it does not mean that Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai 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.
She also told the publication that her decision was not an impulsive one. Though she was initially anxious because her hairdresser had contracted the virus and she did not want to put her elder mother and her son who is one and a half years old at danger. The actress clarified that she had completed her notice period and that her producers were co-operative. She also added that she shares a good rapport with them. Saumya also said that she is not leaving the show for monetary reasons.
