Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is a show that can bring a smile on anyone's face instantly. The sitcom's story and its characters, have been making people laugh since 2008. Well, it's been almost 12 years that the show has been running successfully, and the craze is still intact. Since the show has been going on for so many years now, it's natural that some actors have bid adieu for their reasons. And one of them was Nidhi Bhanushali, who played the role of Sonu Bhide. 

After Nidhi's exit, Palak Sidhwani was introduced as the new Sonu on the show. But, just like any other new actor walking into the shoes of another actor, Palak too was compared to Nidhi. Not merely comparisons, the young actress had to face criticism also. Recently in a conversation with Times of India, the Palak opened up about the criticism that she has received, how she managed to handle it, and how has it affected her personal and professional life.

She said that she is a very positive and optimistic person. If someone even says ten bad things about her, she does not feel bad and take it to her heart. She knows that he is not a perfect person, and she has to work in improving herself and making her better. Palak feels that when the audience watch a show for years together, they get attached to the characters, and they have all the right to speak what they feel about it. She thinks that she is no one to comment on their remarks. However, she feels extremely lucky and fortunate to have supportive people in her life including her friends, family and fans. 

Palak stated that she was lucky that when a handful of people criticized her, many others supported and loved her as the new Sonu. So, ultimately she decided to look at the brighter and positive side to keep things going. 

Meanwhile, with Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray's permission, shoots are soon going to resume and viewers will now be able to enjoy new episodes of TMKOC. What are your thoughts on the same? Are you excited to see Gokuldham society members spread their magic again? Let us know in the comment section below.

It's not the matter of being positive or negative... It's matter of what's true... Palak is surely not even even close to nidhi for Sonu's Role. Palak do a lot of overreacting and her expressions seems totally fake... Nidhi is too natural

It's not about new or old Sonu. I am watching it from 2008 onwards so my affinity towards Jheel Mehta was much more than that with Nidhi. But the problem with the show is it's content. The contents are gradually dipping. I still watch TMKOC old episodes everyday. It's like a stress buster for me but only the old episodes. I had told it time and again please bring back Raju-Rajen duo in writing things will definitely improve

TMKOC is awesome show. It's not just show but it fills Life with full of love happiness and shows path how to actually lead life,. All are awaiting for show, but we can't put TMKOC team under risk hence I request team to take care of their health and safety.

I think their should be no comparison between any two people they are obviously different from each other. All have different acting skills and have different characters. I think due to some characters have changed our love for TMKOC should not gonna effect. I love TMKOC forever. But take care of yourself also during shooting it could be dangerous. Praying for your good health and life.

What a stupid mind set you have! This is not a reality show, it's a fictional show. You have to done what your director want. You should talk about their performance. In term of performance Nidhi was way better.

I can't believe people can be criticizing an actress who is trying her best and also if you think that Palak is not good enough why don't you go and try to replace Nidhi.

It's ok mam u both do good both have different capabilities and acting skill I love tmkoc

Her criticism is genuine...She is of no match to the girl who played sonu for years...It is not the case for being positive or negative madam but to c the reality that the previous sonu needed to have been replaced by a better girl which is in no way u..

Anonymous 4 weeks ago

Well you don't have the right to say that too. Here the thing is about your ego now! You are not attached to the old Sonu you just don't like the new one and she is a better girl and if you don't like her than well you can just go and have a audition for sonu
