The actress had previously claimed that for a year, the producers had failed to pay her required fees of three to four months, or about 4-5 lakhs.

Talking about her painful experience from the sets of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma, Moniska said to Hindustan Times, “My days on the show were no less than hell and makers didn’t even support me when my mother was getting her cancer treated. I had to spend my night in hospital and was called for a shoot in the morning. They always forced me to come even if I explained them my condition. The worst part is that I had to wait & had nothing to do when I reached on the sets.”

In her chat with Pinkvilla, Monika Bhadoriya stated that she faced a lot of problems in her family. “I lost my mom and grandma within a short time. They were my support systems and they raised me very well. It was really difficult to deal with the loss. I thought my life is over, but at the same time, I was also working for TMKOC which was no less than a torture. So all these thoughts and their tortue used to make me think that I should end my life. When the makers said they agve me money during my father’s death and mother illnes, I was deeply hurted by their words.”

She further added explaining how she wanted to quit the show after receiving such ill treatment on the show, “I always dreamt on bringing my parents on the sets of the show, but never did that seeing the toxic environment there. Seei ng this, I though I would never call them on the sets. But when my mother fell sick and was living her last days, I thought of bringing her to show where I work, but this could’t happen.”

Many of the actresses on the show, according to Monika, labour for pay, but she felt that her self-respect was more essential. She has also charged producers with defrauding the musicians and failing to include everything in the contract.

Since one of the actors, Jennifer Mistry, launched a lawsuit against him, the show’s producer is in the news for the uninitiated. Even though the programme has been a success for more than ten years, numerous actors, including Shailesh Lodha, Disha Vakani, and others, have left it for a variety of reasons.
