Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is one of the most loved shows on Indian television. Show has been in the news ever since Neha Mehta, who played the role of Anjali (Bhabhi) Mehta, was replaced by Sunayana Fozdar right after the show completed its 3000 episodes. Neha had been a part of the show since the very first episode and played Anjali Bhabhi for 12 years. So it was pretty reasonable for her fans to express their anger over the decision of the makers to let her go.
As we all know that Neha Mehta had quit the show hinting that all was not well between her and the makers. She had also said that she wanted to consider her return only if there’s some considerable change in decorum and conduct on the set. Producer Asit Kumar Modi turned down her request and she was eventually replaced by Sunayana. There’s no doubt that her fans are going to compare her performance with that of Neha’s who has a special place in audience’s hearts. However, Sunayana is well aware of the praise and brickbats that will come her way as she steps into the shoes of the new Anjali Bhabhi in Taarak Mehta show.
When Sunayana was asked about the same, she said in an interview, “I believe it is audience’s right to give us good and bad feedback. Whatever fame we get is because of them. That is why I say that if we are happy to hear their praise, we should also be prepared for their negative feedback. I know I will be compared because this is a very popular show and people have really appreciated the character.”
