Asit Kumarr Modi, the producer of ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah,’ has recently been in the news for all the wrong reasons. Several actors have come forward and opened up about their experiences, which have included everything from sexual harassment to unpaid bills.
Following Jennifer Mistry Baniswal and Monika Bhadoriya, Rita Reporter from the programme Priya Ahuja has now come out against Asit. In a recent interview, Priya disclosed that Asit Modi and his team’s demeanour altered as soon as she got married to the director, Malav Rajda.
Priya Ahuja, who as served for 14 years in the show, said that mental harassment has affected the show’s performers and that she too has experienced it in an interview with Etimes TV. However, it had little of an impact on her because her husband Malav, the show’s director, was making money.
After Jennifer Mistry Baniswal reported Asit to the police for allegedly harassing her in a sexual manner, former TMKOC star Priya opened up about her unpleasant working relationship with the producer. Monika Bhadoriya also reacted angrily to Asit and said that he had harassed and tormented her while she was working on the programme. The producer, however, issued a statement disputing Jennifer’s claims and threatening legal action against the star for disparaging him and his programme.
