Weeks after Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah actor Shailesh Lodha sued the show maker for alleged nonpayment, cast actor Jennifer Bansiwal has reportedly quit the show. Jennifer, who played the character of Roshan Sodhi for over 15 years, accused the show maker Asit Modi of alleged sexual harassment.

Jennifer Mistry has stepped away from the show, filing a complaint against the show’s producer Asit Kumar Modi, project head Sohail Ramani, and executive producer Jatin Bajaj, accusing them of sexual misconduct in the workplace.

Recounting the harrowing experience to the publication, Bansiwal revealed that she was repeatedly asked to leave the set by Sohail Ramani. To her disbelief, the executive producer, Jatin Bajaj, went as far as blocking her car, preventing her from leaving.

Characterizing the show’s work environment as “male chauvinistic,” the 44-year-old actress unveiled a startling revelation: the entire incident was captured on CCTV footage.

In a surprising turn of events, Bansiwal expected a call from the producers to address the situation but instead received a notice on March 24. The notice accused her of abandoning the shoot and causing financial loss, a claim she vehemently denies.

Meanwhile, Asit Modi refused the allegations, and said, “We will take legal action as she is trying to defame me and the show both.”
