Tarak Mehta actress Jennifer aka Roshan accuses Producer Modi of sexual harassment

In an interview, Jennifer revealed that Asit Modi made 'sexual advances' towards her many times in the past. Initially, she ignored all his statements because of fear of losing out on work.

Jennifer said that on her last day on Taarak Mehta sets, March 7 (her marriage anniversary and Holi), she wanted half day leave but the makers made adjustments for everyone except her. Jennifer stated that they adjusted for all the male actors and called it an extremely 'male-chauvinistic place'.

'They said I'm trying to extort money'

“They [Sohir Ramani and also executive producer Jatin Bajaj] tried to force me into the filming set, locked the gates and did not allow me to go out.” I sent a complaint email to the authorities a month ago, but have not received a response. I'm sure they should start investigating. I have hired a lawyer, so I know justice will be served soon. 

On March 24, Jennifer received a notice that the shoot had been cancelled and that the creators had lost money before she did. On April 4, she responded via WhatsApp that she had been sexually harassed. The actress sent her bills of exchange, she said, to which she replied that they were "trying to extort money from them."

On April 8, Jennifer sent notices to Mr Asit Modi, Mr Sohir Ramani and Mr Jatin Bajaj, and also mailed her registry to all government agencies.

Jennifer: Every person on Taarak Mehta is bonded labourer

"I've been silent for two months and haven't spoken to anyone about it, but I wasn't ready to speak today because the show gave me everything Name, fame, money and for which I am very grateful. But whatever I've been through over the years, people should know about it. All residents of Talak Mehta are forced laborers," she added.
Jennifer continued, "Asit Modi has made sexual advances to me many times in the past. At first, I ignored everything he said for fear of losing his job. But I've had enough, so I won't hold back. 

'I was subjected to humiliation'

Finally, Jennifer confirmed that she was leaving the show and filming the final episode on March 6, 2023. "She had to leave the set because she was humiliated and insulted by Mr. Sohir Ramani and other executive producers Mr. Jatin Bajaj," the actress said in an interview.
