Bhavya Gandhi left her fans disappointed when he recently announced his exit from popular show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. “It’s not that I left because the character didn’t have any scope. It has a lot of potential but it wasn’t given much scope… It was ignored. I spoke to the makers a lot of times. But like you all saw, I was hardly seen in the episodes so that was pretty much the outcome of our meetings,” the actor said.
Bhavya has shot for his debut Gujarati film, which has been directed by Dharmesh Mehta, the man behind the first 500 episodes of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. The movie, which is about a father-son relationship, will see Bhavya play the son of veteran actor Manoj Joshi. “We have finished shooting for the film. Only a few songs are left to be shot. The film should release in May. Manoj Joshi plays my father, while Ketki Dave will be seen as my mother.”
When asked if he has quit the small screen and will only be seen in movies now, the actor said, “I will just do good work regardless of the medium. Whether it is cinema, television or web, I will go where I get good content. That’s my focus.”
