She has also been a part of Aamir Khan's Mangal Pandey: The Rising and Priyanka Chopra's Love Story 2050.

But Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah (which began on July 28, 2008) made her a popular celebrity. The show based on Duniya Ne Undha Chashma written by late columnist and journalist Taarak Mehta. She is paired with actor Dilip Joshi in the show which has been on the air for a decade now.

oh well ! I don't blame her for asking a hike.Anyone would want to earn more than what he or she was earning earlier. it's upto Asit Modi to accept her terms or not. 
I only hope she tones down her overacting. thumbnail

From 1.25 Lakhs to 1.50 lakhs is not a whopping amount. Pay hikes usually happen during renewal of contract. Its quite obvious.
