Did you notice anything different in Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah recently? Jethalal, played by Dilip Joshi, is not his usual self. He’s less chirpy and kinda lost, no? Well, we think that we have figured out the reason for his gloominess. He’s probably missing Babita Ji who has gone completely MIA on the show lately. Well, we miss her too. She was a central character in the show and we loved how she added new twists in Jethalal’s life. But sadly, her absence from the daily soap is not a temporary scenario.
Yep, it may come across as a major shock to all the TMKOC fans, but Babita aka Munmun Dutta is apparently quitting the show.
Recently, the cast and crew had temporarily shifted to Daman due to COVID-19 restrictions in Maharashtra. While the actress had decided to take a short break at the time, her fans expected her to return soon. But, even though the set has been shifted back to Mumbai, Munmun has not resumed work.
A little birdie tells us that, “Munmun has not reported to the sets ever since she got embroiled in a recent controversy. And there is a strong buzz that she may even decide to leave the show soon.”
Well, the recent controversy happened when the actress shared a video on her social media handle. She unknowingly used a racial slur that enraged the netizens. While she apologised for it later, it seems like the clip has affected her return on the show as well.
NGL, we’re pretty disappointed that Munmun will no longer be a part of TMKOC. But, we’re hoping to see a new and even more interesting character in the series soon!
