Television’s one of the longest running show ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ is all set to witness a major change in its star cast.
According to latest reports, actor Bhavya Gandhi, who plays the role of Tappu on the show, has decided to quit the show after eight long years.
A source told Daily Bhaskar that, “Bhavya has been a part of TMKOC from its first episode. It’s been almost eight years now and so he decided to explore his acting in other fields. He has already signed a Gujarati movie and has been shooting day and night in Gujarat. Another reason for quitting the show is that the makers were not giving him enough screen space. Bhavya used to hardly shoot for 3-4 days in a month. Obviously, as an actor, he wasn’t much satisfied with this work mode. And so, finally he has put down the papers.”
Reportedly, the reason behind Bhavya’s exit is his willingness to explore himself as an actor and spread his wings to grab new opportunities.
While talking to Tellychakkar.com, Bhavya confirms the news and said “Yes, I have quit the show in month of January. The journey of eight years and eight months has been fruitful. I have enjoyed working with my Taarak cast and Asit (Modi) sir (producer). In the same way in which my fans have showered me with love, I would want them to support me for my future endeavours.”
Well we surely miss Tappu on the show!
