So, she finally decided to continue her run.
Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah – Neha Mehta
Neha had played the role of Anjali in Taarak Mehta for as long as 12 years. It is said that in February, the actress had some issues with Asit Kumarr Modi. However, she wasn’t paid any attention. So in order to hold her ‘integrity’, Mehta decided to bid goodbye to the show.
