It appears that the long running show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah will be bidding adieu to another one of its long standing cast members. Raj Anadkat, who has been playing Tapu since 2017, shared on social media that his association with the show has now ended.

Raj shared a note on Instagram saying that this was to put an end to all speculation regarding his departure from the show. He wrote,

Fans took the comments section and expressed that they would miss the actor on the show. “Thanks for the entertainment Tapu,” one fan wrote. Another wrote, “Always support you brother”

Raj took on the role of Tapu, Jethalal’s son, after Bhavya Gandhi quit the show. A few months ago, there were speculations that Raj might be quitting the show as he had been absent from the set.

When Raj was questioned about the same in August, he told Pinkvilla, “My fans, my audience, my well-wishers, they all know that I am very good in creating suspense. I am an expert in creating suspense.”

Earlier this year, Shailesh Lodha quit the show amid much controversy. Actor Sachin Shroff stepped into his shoes.
