Taarak Mehta Ka OoltahChashmah has been in news for all wrong reasons for the last one week. Bhavya Gandhi who played the young Tapu on the show quit and then, the noted playwright Taarak Mehta who was the inspiration behind the show, passed away.

The makers have found a replacement for Bhavya on the show. Raj Anadkat will be playing the new Tapu and he has started shooting as well.

But recently, when an online portal got in touch with Bhavya’s mother asking her the reason behind his exit, she revealed that Bhavya has landed up a plump role in a film and has been getting a lot of movie offers, which is why he decided to step down. Producer Asit Modi is not too happy with this.

Asit told Daily Bhaskar, “Honestly, it was sad to see Bhavya quitting our show when we needed him the most. I was like a father figure to him and I supported him throughout these years. He signed a Gujarati movie without informing us. I did not interfere in it as long as my show did not suffer. We were shooting a special Republic Day episode and Tappu was required for it. Surprisingly, Bhavya refused to shoot. I was disheartened to see his behavior towards me and my team. Throughout these years, I always cooperated with him, but one cannot bear this kind of unprofessional behaviour. We had no other option rather than replacing him with a new face.”

Raj has entered the show and now, the focus will be on him. “It seems like fame and success has gone into his head. But he should not forget that it was Tappu’s character which made him so popular. Anyway, I have no grudges against him and now my whole concentration will be on Raj and Tappu Sena,” Asit told the website.
