Child actor Bhavya Gandhi surprised his fans when his announced his sudden exit from the popular daily soap 'Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma'.
He was seen playing the pivotal role of child star Tappu in the show and was associated with the show for over eight years.
While the audience was still trying to overcome his exit, the makers have opened up on Bhavya leaving the show and called his decision unprofessional.
According to the media reports, the makers of 'Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma' have stated that the young actor had left the show when the show had needed him the most.
Besides, there were reports that Bhavya left the show following a big role in a movie.
Looks like the reports are true enough and the producers of 'Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma' are quite miffed with it.
While talking to a leading daily, producer Asit Modi stated, "Honestly, it was sad to see Bhavya quitting our show when we needed him the most. I was like a father figure to him and I supported him throughout these years. He signed a Gujarati movie without informing us. I did not interfere in it as long as my show did not suffer. We were shooting a special Republic Day episode and Tappu was required for it. Surprisingly, Bhavya refused to shoot. I was disheartened to see his behaviour towards me and my team. Throughout these years, I always cooperated with him, but one cannot bear this kind of unprofessional behaviour. We had no other option rather than replacing him with a new face."
Modi even added, that while vanity has taken over Gandhi's mind, he must not forget that he got his share of fame with 'Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma'.
"It seems like fame and success has gone into his head. But he should not forget that it was Tappu’s character which made him so popular. Anyway, I have no grudges against him and now my whole concentration will be on Raj and Tappu Sena," Asit added.
Post Bhavya Gandhi's exit from the show, television actor Raj Anadkat roped in to play Tappu role in 'Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma'
