Recently reports emerged on the internet that said that Shefali Jariwala
will be replacing Saumya Tandon
in the hit show Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hain. Now the show’s producer Binaifer Kohli has spoken to Times of India and debunked all such rumors. Kohli said that Saumya Tandon will soon be back on the show and she is not getting replaced.
Speaking about the rumors Binaifer said, “I don’t know where these rumors are coming from. I have not spoken to Shefali Jariwala or anyone. Saumya Tandon is currently shooting for the show. As of now she is very much a part of Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain and will be shooting with us. Saumya is a good artist, I love her, she is very professional. If I had my way I would have never let her go.”
Saumya is currently self-isolating at her home after her hairdresser tested positive for coronavirus. Earlier Saumya revealed that she has taken a pay cut just like all her other costars. She said, “It's not just me, it has happened with everybody. It's not in just our industry, it is happening everywhere. It is for the work that is to be done for the future, it is not for the work which we have already done for which the payments are pending.
But whatever we shoot in the future because the entire TV industry has to go through some cuts seeing the economy has been shaken up not just in our country, but across the globe. Unfortunately, this disease has been unkind to everyone in many ways. So, it is not just me, but all my friends in the television industry, I am not talking about only the people who are working with me in this show, but everybody around me has been asked to take a pay cut. All the production houses have informed their artists that going forward in the future they will have to cooperate."
