Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah Actress Priya Ahuja Talks About “Raw Treatment” On The Show; she remembers producer Asit Modi making sexist comments
For the inexperienced, initially, Shailesh Lodha, a former TMKOC star, accused the show’s creators of delaying his payment. Most recently, Jennifer Mistry Bansiwal came forward, accusing not only the production team but also Asit Kumar Modi, the show’s creator, of harassment. Following these revelations, Monika Bhadoriya, who played the character of Bawri, shed light on the behind-the-scenes struggles of being an actor on the show.
In an interview with Times Of India, Priya stated, “Artists have to go through mental harassment when they work at Taarak Mehta. Asit Kumarr Modi bhai, Sohil Ramani or Jatin Bajaj (he’s like my younger brother) never misbehaved with me. But at work I have been subjected to unfair treatment.
The actress further stated that she was completely unaware of her character’s trajectory, even after her husband, the director, left the show. Priya revealed that she had tried to seek clarification from the creators but she received no response. In addition, she recounted cases where the show’s producer, Asit Modi, had made sexist comments. She recalled, “Asit bhai has told me this many times ‘Malav is winning so why do you have to worry? You enjoy life like a queen.”
Ahuja also added that it is “unfortunate” that he has not received basic respect despite having worked with the team for 14 long years. Speaking of the professional front, Priya recently returned to television screens with StarPlus’ Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin.
