Actress Saumya Tandon best known for her role in show Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain, has now quits the show. The actress has confirmed about the same during an interview with Bombay Times. In her interview with BT, she revealed that she has quit the show and will shoot her last episode for the show on Friday.
Saumya Tandon has been a part of the show ‘Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain‘ ever since it started five years back. She has been playing the lead role of Anita Mishra in the TV series that also stars Aasif Sheikh, Rohitash Gaud and Shubhangi Atre in lead.
Now, Confirming the news about her leaving the show, Saumya quoted to BT, “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.”
She explained her decision, “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.”
She added, “I want to do projects where there is scope for growth as an artiste. Having said that, it does not mean that BhabiJi 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.”
Saumya also addressed the rumours that she is quitting the show because of coronavirus scare and ‘monetary reasons’. She quoted saying, “Not continuing with Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain was not an impulsive decision. Yes, it is true that I was anxious after my hairdresser tested positive for coronavirus and I did not want to put my elderly mother and one-and-a-half-year-old son at risk. But I have completed my notice period.”
“My producers were very co-operative and I have a great rapport with them. They have been great producers and respect them a lot. As far as pay cut is concerned, in these times, people have to accept that the economy has been hit. I am not leaving the show because of monetary reasons,” she added.
As for future plans, she revealed she wants to be part of well-written stories.
