Babita ji aka Munmun Dutta was in a sensation for two months as the controversy that was going on where she was spotted using the casteist slur controversy on YouTube while shooting for her vlog. Later, the video was deleted by her from youtube channel and she also apologised on Twitter regarding the use of the word ‘Bhangi’ which was offensive and it’s prohibited from using the slur video. She stated that it wasn’t intentional or to hurt anyone’s feelings, sentiments, religion or caste. She too adds that she respects everyone’s religion and race, she wasn’t well aware about the meaning of the word. When she was informed immediately she took her video down from the social media platforms. Despite this, FIR was filed against her for using the Slur word publicly on the social media platforms for which people were offended.
Due to this incident she also left the set of Tarak Mehta ka ooltah chashma but the production house didn’t confirm that she had left the show and the rumours were all over the industry. As of now everything is sorted so Munmun Dutta will join back the sets of tmkoc soon, maybe this week as per the reports.
Iyer bhai aka Tanuj Mahashabde Babita’s ji husband in the show has acknowledged that Babita will return soon on the sets of TMKOC.
Munmun Dutta posted on her social media platform instagram that “Over the past 2-3 days, few things were falsely reported, which had negative implications on my life. People are saying that I did not report on the sets of the show and it is totally untrue. Reality was, whatever story was written, does not require my presence. Thus I was not called to shoot from the production’s side.”
Also, If and when I plan to quit the show, I will declare it myself because I believe the fans of the show who are emotionally attached to my character and they deserve to know the truth rather than just speculations. Thankyou”
