SAB TV’s popular sitcom Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma has been one of the most talked about and longest running shows on Indian Television. Starring Dilip Joshi in the lead, the family drama witnessed a major twist in the cast after Neha Mehta had announced her exit from the show. To note, Neha was seen playing the role of Anjali Mehta in the show and was associated with TMKOC for over a decade. She was later replaced by Sunayana Fozdar.

While her exit came as a massive shock for her fans, there have been reports about her comeback in the show. However, the actress has finally cleared the air about the same and revealed that she will return to Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah only if the audience demands it. “There is no truth to these rumours. I will only consider a comeback to Taarak Mehta... if the audiences, production house and channel wants me. And after quitting the show, I have never called the producer or expressed my wish to return. My first priority will always be the audience and viewers who have given me love and respect all these years. I don’t know how these talks have surfaced,” Neha was quoted saying to Times of India.

She further mentioned that she has given her best to the show and doesn’t have anything against the production house or producer Asit Modi. “I want to stand for what I truly believe in and therefore I quit the show. I don’t want to create a negative situation, so I have maintained a dignified silence. I don’t believe in proving to anyone or explaining the reason for my quitting. I want to continue doing good karma with God’s blessings,” she added.

Earlier, speaking about Neha’s exit, Asit had stated, “Neha Mehta will always remain part of the Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah family. 12 years of working together bind you in a relationship that cannot be easily expressed in words. The decision to part ways was mutually agreed on. Everyone in the team appreciates and values her contribution to Anjali Mehtta’s character and the show. And, if ever in the future we have an opportunity to include her in any of our projects, we will definitely seek her out.”
