With lockdown being imposed in Maharashtra, many shows have relocated to continue their shoots while others did not initially. Long-running sitcom Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai had a bank of episodes to telecast but then has returned to re-running old episodes till they were planning for shoot in a different city.
Now that it will be happening in Surat, the fans were seemingly perplexed lately when they saw recent entrant Neha Pendse not being a part of the show. This gave birth to rumors that Pendse has quit the show already.
But Pendse opened up on these rumors in an interview with ETimes TV as she said, “I am not surprised that such rumours are doing the rounds because I was not visible in the last few episodes. Those were episodes which were old and I wasn’t a part of those shoots. When the episodes were aired, many people messaged me saying they were missing me on screen. I had to explain to them that I would be back soon. I am very much on board and happy doing my role,” she shares. She further adds, “Initially people used to compare me with the actress who was playing the role before me and it was something I knew would happen. But now people have accepted me well in this role and I have settled in nicely too.”
When asked what does her family have to say about shooting in such high risk, she said, "My family understands that it is work that I am going for and I will be safe because of the number of precautions I take.”
