Shailesh Lodha BREAKS SILENCE on TMKOC exit
At a recent event hosted by Aaj Tak, Shailesh Lodha aka Taarak Mehta was asked about his exit from Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. Without taking any names, he seemingly hinted at not being happy with the producers thinking that they are bigger than the talent. He said that in this country, a publisher wears a diamond ring while the writer shells out money. He mentioned about people considering themselves over and above talented people and said that artists should raise their voices. He further quoted, “Those who earn popularity due to the work of an artist cannot be bigger than the artist. Any publisher in the world cannot be bigger than the writer. Any producer cannot be bigger than the actor. He is a businessman. If any businessman tries to overpower the actor or poet in me, I will strongly condemn it.”
Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is produced by Asit Modi. Before Shailesh Lodha’s exit from the show, Disha Vakani’s exit created quite a stir. Dayaben has still not returned to the show and fans are eagerly waiting for her. For more entertainment news, stay tuned.
