The popular Indian television sitcom show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is continuously making headlines for various reasons. While some fans are busy discussing the comeback of Disha Vakani aka Daya Ben in the popular show, and on the other hand the show is making hot news headlines for the allegations made by Jennifer Mistry Bansiwal (Mrs. Roshan Sodhi). And now, Monika Bhadoriya who is known for playing the character of Bawri in the show has revealed her torturous experience and being suicidal while working in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah.

Monika Bhadoriya opened up about  the time when she lost her mother to cancer. But as per her statement, the makers of TMKOC in place of being sympathetic to her, wanted her to be back on the show.

In an exclusive conversation with ETimes, Monika said her mother was admitted to the hospital after she was diagnosed with cancer. So, she had to stay back every night in the hospital to take care of her mother. And in that situation, the makers of TMKOC would call her early in the morning to the sets. 

And when the actress would request them to understand her situation, they would refuse by saying, “Aa jao kuch jyada kaam nahi hai.”

She also revealed that when she would reach sets they would make her just sit for hours. She even tried to complain to Asit Kumarr Modi also and he would say, ‘Arrey you concentrate on work, your mother will get better’. 

And revealing the most heartbreaking part of the story, Monika said, “Even when my mom passed away he did not make a single call. Sohil would say, ‘Bahut logon ke bahut log marr jate hain par kaam toh karna padta hai’. Sohil would say we are paying you so whatever we say you have to do.”

Monika also went on to talk about being suicidal while working in the much loved show. She claimed that the TMKOC makers tortured her so much that she used to feel it’s better to commit suicide than to work in the show. Talking about the same, she said, “They mentally tortured me. They would shout at me and misbehave. Sohil would say we are paying you so whatever we say you have to do. They humiliate actors as they are not humans. They will say stuff like ‘Arre tumhari maa marr gayi, bhai marr gaya paise humne diye’.”

This is not the first time Monika has slammed the makers of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. Earlier also she had extended her support to Jennifer Mistry Bansiwal as she made strong harassment allegations on Asit Kumar Modi. Also, Monika had claimed that Disha Vakani will not come back to the show as there are chances that she too was harassed by the show’s makers. 

Apart from Monika Bhadoriya and Jennifer Mistry Bansiwal, many other prominent actors like Disha Vakani, Shailesh Lodha, Raj Anandkat and more have bid adieu to the show.
