In what seems to be somewhat of a tiff, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah actress Neha Mehta, who plays the role of Anjali on the popular family drama series, claimed that the producers are yet to clear pending dues for six months as she already quit the show in 2020.
Neha had recently released a statement through a leading news daily, where she cleared that she never preferred to complain publicly but as the question of her hard earned money raised, she had to take the step. “I live a very dignified life and don’t believe in complaining about anything. I acted in Taarak Mehta as Anjali for 12 years before quitting in 2020. The last six months’ money is pending. After I quit the show, I called them a few times regarding my pending dues. I don’t like complaining… hopefully, there will be a solution soon and I will get my hard-earned money,” she stated.
Neela Film Productions Private Limited also decided to answer back, as they released a statement that read, “We consider our artist as our family. We have contacted Neha Mehta mulitple times to complete the formalities with us. Unfortunately, she has been reluctant to sign the exit documents without which we cannot do a full and final settlement as per company policy. She also stopped responding to all our communication from past 2 years and she left the show without meeting us. We wish she would have replied to our emails instead of making false accusations about the makers that have given her 12 years of fame and career. We reserve our rights for appropriate action.”
