Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah actor Jennifer Mistry Bansiwal, who plays the role of Roshan Kaur Sodhi, on Thursday accused the show’s producer Asit Kumar Modi and two others of sexual harassment.
Jennifer said that she has written to the concerned authorities, including the National Commission for Women (NCW) and Mumbai Police on April 8, accusing Modi, project head Sohail Ramani and executive producer Jatin Bajaj of sexual harassment and outraging the modesty of a woman.
In an interview, Jennifer revealed that Asit Modi made sexual advances towards her on multiple occasions over the last few years. She said the producer used to pass uncharitable comments but she ignored them initially because of fear of losing out on work.
Referring to one of the incidents from March 2019, Jennifer alleged that Asit Modi asked her to come to his room to have whisky when they were on a Singapore trip. She said she kept quiet but shared these things with two of her colleagues who often shield her. She said they are still working on the show so they can’t do much.
Later, she said she narrated the whole incident to Ramani and told him that she doesn’t want to work with the team. To which Ramani said her payment will be stopped for four months, she alleged, continuing that they were mentally pressuring her.
Reportedly, Jennifer said she wanted half day leave on March 7 because of her marriage anniversary and Holi but the makers made adjustments for everyone except her. Jennifer stated that they adjusted for all the male actors and called it an extremely male-chauvinistic place.
She further alleged that they (Sohil Ramani and the other executive producer Jatin Bajaj) tried to forcefully stop her on the sets and were shutting the gates and not allowing her to go out. She said she sent the complaint mail to authorities a month back but hasn’t got any revert. She has hired a lawyer and is confident that she will get justice soon.
Jennifer further said that she was quiet for two months and did not tell anyone about this and today also she was not ready to talk because the show has given her everything: name, fame, and money, for which she is very grateful for it. Every person on Taarak Mehta is a bonded labourer, she added.
Finally, Jennifer admitted that she left the show and shot her last episode on March 6, 2023, as she was subjected to humiliation and insult at the hands of Sohil Ramani and the other executive producer Jatin Bajaj.
Modi denied Jennifer’s allegations and said he will take legal action against her for trying to defame him and the show. He said Jennifer is making baseless allegations against him and the show because they have terminated her services. He said the actor was removed from the show on account of misbehaviour. The show’s directors, Harshad Joshi, Rushi Dave and Armaan Dhanesha, also alleged Jennifer lacked discipline and was not focused on her work.
In the past few months, various actors such as Shailesh Lodha, Raj Anadkat, and Neha Mehta among others have quit the longest-running sitcom. Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is in its 15th year and has completed over 3700 episodes.
