Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hain is one of the most loved shows on Indian television. Many people love the show for its comedy but there are people who
love the show for its characters.

One of the most loved characters, Anita played by Saumya Tandon is going to quit the show. Recently, Saumya’s hair dresser tested positive for corona
virus while they were shooting during the lockdown.

However, the actress revealed that today will be her last day on set. She said, “Yes, I have decided to not renew my contract further. Tomorrow (21st of August) is my last day of shoot. Finally, people can stop speculating whether I will continue on the show or not.”

Talking about her decision of quitting, she says, “Well, you can say that it’s an impractical decision to quit a stable job, that too, in an established
show. But, I realised that being employed and earning a regular income was not exciting enough any more. I want to do projects where there is
scope for growth as an artiste. Having said that, it does not mean that ‘Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hain’ did not contribute to my growth, I had a beautiful journey
on the show. However, I have played this character for five years now, and I don’t see myself doing it for another five years.”

“Not continuing with ‘Bhabhi Ji…’ was not an impulsive decision. Yes, it is true that I was anxious after my hairdresser tested positive for coronavirus,
and I did not want to put my elderly mother and one-and-a-half-year-old son at risk. But, I have completed my notice period. My producers (Sanjay
and Binaifer Kohli) were very co-operative and I have a great rapport with them. They have been great producers and respect them a lot. As far as
pay cut is concerned, in these times, people have to accept that the economy has been hit. I am not leaving the show because of monetary reasons,”she
added.

Saumya Tandon further talks about her future plans after quitting the show ‘Bhabhi Ji Ghar par hain’. She said, “I want to be part of well-written stories.
People are writing good scripts on other platforms; even Bollywood is experimenting with good content. I will miss the entire team of ‘Bhabi Ji Ghar Par hain’, but I have to push myself out of my comfort zone and take new risks in life.”
