The actor and producer have parted on a sour note..
The millions of fans of ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chasmah’ were not only disheartened but also shocked when Bhavya Gandhi aka Tapu decided to quit the show.
It was being said that Bhavya decided to quit the show as he is looking for greener pastures which includes him signing a Gujarati film.
However, this exit was not an amicable one and producer, Asit Modi is absolutely ridiculed and miffed about the whole issue.
In an interview with Daily Bhaskar, Asit Modi mentioned that he is disheartened to see Bhavya quit the show when they needed him the most. While he did not have a problem with Bhavya signing a film as it did not affect his show, things changed when the makers were to shoot the Republic Day episode.
When the cast had to shoot for the Republic Day episode, Tapu was a requirement and that’s when Bhavya apparently refused to shoot. Asit mentioned that he was surprised by his behaviour towards him and the team. He said that he has been a support system to Bhavya for all these years and this was unprofessional behaviour. Thus, the final call to replace him was taken.
Asit also mentioned that seemingly fame and success must have gone into Bhavya’s head, but he shouldn’t forget that it is the character of Tapu that has made him popular.
Parting on a mellow note, Asit mentioned that he doesn’t hold any grudges towards him and that his focus will be on Raj (the new Tapu) and Tapu Sena.
