17 May, 2022 | Riya Girdhar

Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah (TMKOC) continues to entertain audiences like no other, which is why it is one of Indian television's longest-running sitcoms.

According to recent reports, the show is about to take another hiatus. Following Disha Vakani, Neha Mehta, and Gurucharan Singh, it has been reported that Shailesh Lodha aka Taarak from Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah will be leaving the show. According to sources, Shailesh, who portrays Taarak and Jethalal’s friend, has decided to leave the show.

Previously, Raj Anadkat was in the news for leaving the show a few months ago. Fortunately, the actor stayed because the production house was able to persuade him. Despite the producers’ best efforts to persuade Shailesh to stay, it appears that the well-known poet has made up his mind.

Shailesh is said to have been out of the show for a month. According to sources, the actor is dissatisfied with his contract and believes that his dates are not being used properly while filming for the show. Another reason for his departure has emerged: Shailesh is unable to pursue other opportunities due to the exclusivity factor.

According to reports, the actor has recently turned down several offers, and he doesn’t want to waste any more opportunities that come his way.

However, neither the production company nor the actor have confirmed or denied the news. Neither side has issued an official statement on the matter.
