After actress Saumya Tandon’s exit from Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain, we have seen many names from the television world surfacing on social media as the new replacement in the show. While earlier there rumours that Nehha Pendse, will portray the character of Anita Bhabhi and now it is said that former Bigg Boss contestant Shefali Jariwala has approached for the role. The Kaanta Laga girl has reacted to the rumours and said she has not been approached by the makers and she doesn’t where these rumours have come from.
In a chat with SpotBoye, Shefali Jariwala said, “I also don’t know from where the rumours started. I wish I would have known and I have stopped there only. It was very important for me to clarify so maine apne end se clarify karne ki poori koshish ki. And said I am not replacing Saumya Tandon. But even after Saumya left the show, it again revived that Shefali is playing Anita Bhabi and I would like to clarify that the makers have not even approached me for this. Though it’s a great character to play but makers ne mujhse koi bhi baat nahi ki hai. Baat to tab hogi jab makers se kuch baat hogi, koi negotiation hoga. Kuch hua hi nahi hai. So, I really don’t know from where all these rumours started. Isme koi sachai nahi hai.”
She further added, “I should totally take that as a compliment agar log mujhe use character ke liye apt samajhte hain. Because unko show mein ‘Gori Mem’ bhi bualaya jata hai may be is liye bhi logo ko lagta hain. I would really like to tell you one thing that Saumya Tandon was fantastic in what she did. This show is been running for many years. And the way she has played this Bhabiji ka character is very difficult for anybody to justify this character. For someone to step into her shoes, it will be very difficult. Par logo ne ye socha ki main vo character kar sakti hoon ya logo ne mujhe us character mein dekhne ki chaah rakhi, uske liye I am very happy and thankful. At least they thought that I am fit for the role.
