Shailesh Lodha’s action against the makers of ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’, one year’s fee is due

In TV’s popular sitcom ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ where on one hand there is no shortage in entertaining the audience. On the other hand, someone or the other exits from this show every year. Last year, ‘Taarak Mehta’ aka Shailesh Lodha did it, then he was replaced by Sachin Shroff. Shailesh left the show because he was not getting his fees. However, the producer of the show Asit Kumar Modi had said in an interview that nothing like this. Shailesh has got a good opportunity elsewhere, so he has said goodbye to the show. But from the reports that are coming out now, it seems that Shailesh had given the correct information.

Shailesh filed a complaint
Shailesh shot the last episode in the month of April last year. Then in the month of January this year, there were reports that Shailesh has been waiting for 6 months, he has not received one year’s salary in full. Now according to the latest update, Shailesh has decided to take legal support against the makers of the show. In the month of March, Shailesh lodged a complaint against Asit Modi. He said that Asit has not given his salary till now. Shailesh had filed this complaint with the ‘National Company Law Tribunal’. He said that he wants his full salary after sitting and talking with Asit. This complaint was registered under section 9. The hearing of this complaint is to be held in May.

According to Hindustan Times, when the actor was asked about this over the phone, he said that the matter is in the court and he does not want to say anything about it. At the same time, when Asit was called, he said that he is traveling, he will not be able to comment in this matter. After this, Sohil Ramani, the project head of the show was called, he said, “I have nothing new to say in this matter, because everything has already come in the media. Shailesh is like family to all of us.” When he quitted the show, we all respected his decision. And we have called him several times asking him to come to the office, complete all the paperwork and collect his remaining salary. Haven’t refused to pay salary.

He further said that be it any company, when a person leaves from there, he has to complete the full and final papers, after that the full payment is released. What is the issue in this? It would have been better if the correct procedure would have been followed instead of going outside and making complaints. On the case, Ramani said that we do not have any case, because we have never refused to pay his salary. We have informed Lodha sir about this. He can come anytime to sign the papers and take his remaining salary.
