According to the new report, it claims Jennifer stopped shooting for the show two months ago and had her last shoot on March 7.

Mistry had said to a media outlet that she left the sets as she was “subjected to humiliation and insult at the hands of Mr Sohil Ramani and the other executive producer Jatin Bajaj.”

She also shared that the producers did not make arrangement for her but they do for all the male actors. She said that the place is ‘male chauvanistic’.

Jennifer also said that every person working on ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ is “bonded labour”, according to a media report.

Apart from Jennifer and Shailesh, actors who have left the show include names such as Disha Vakani and Gurucharan.
